Modifications

Good morning!

As I said in a previous post, I'm going to attempt to quickly run through all of the modifications we have done to our little Skoda Yeti so far.

I'll only be briefly running through them, otherwise the post would be about a hundred pages long - I'll detail the more interesting ones in a future post or 2.

I'm not really sure how to lay this out, so I think I'll just put some photos up from when we first got her, to how she stands now, with some brief captions under each photo.

That should give you an idea of where we are, and, as I say, I'll go through some more in-depth stuff later this week.

Anyway, enjoy, and if you have any questions, either reach me on Instagram (@overland_yeti), or use the 'Contact Us' tab on the left of this page, we'll be happy to help.

 First modification! Some Nordrive roof bars

 Modern Skoda badges, and numberplate surrounds

LED number plate bulbs

 Maxxis ArcticTrekker mud and snow tyres went on next

We added an ancient Thule roof basket, although it was never really big enough, it did the job for a couple of months. 

We then installed an Offtrek awning, looking back the positioning of it was totally wrong and it looked so out of place!

Not wanting to get stuck in the snow with not enough lights, we installed an LED light bar

Next came a much bigger roof basket, which is much more suited to what we use it for, mainly carrying light but bulky overlanding gear such as tents, sleeping bags etc. 

Also, as you can see, the awning fits perfectly on it with no overhang - much better.

I then installed a CB radio and 155cm whip antenna to the Yeti, to keep in contact with people that we usually travel with. 

Fully loaded for a trip, hopefully you can see how the new roof set up really does compliment our little car, and is much more practical and fit for purpose. 

I still felt that something was missing, so I ordered these cool graphics from Hippy Motors down in Devon. I'll have to grab some more photos, but I love how it looks now.


I'm pretty sure that there's loads that I've missed out, but I'll go through it all again with some more photos in another post. 

Hopefully you have a better understanding of what we have done to our little overlander thus far, and with any luck you're enjoying the build and want to see more!

My next post will detail some of the future modifications that we are planning, but for now, as always, thanks for reading and I'll catch you over on the Skoda Yeti Appreciation page on Facebook (go join it!), and on Instagram.

Cheers, 
Adam.
