After a 6 year break I'm back with my first built. The one that has defeated me 4 times in the past. HUGE thanks to Stickerbod who's white panel decals made this possible. The body is original and has never been painted before, although it had been briefly run and had roof cracks but otherwise perfect. No ReRe parts on it yet, all vintage including original CRP coil overs and black bumper. Still some minor decal trimming to do on nose & awaiting radio box and dash board.

Great devotion to the build , scanning through your showroom reminded me you were the lucky owner of a 4WD scorcher I racked my brains to remember people who had that conversion

Many thanks all! Good to be back. @ gr2fltp, fond memories of that scorcher indeed. Eric Swe has a rather fine collection of 4wd scorchers too!

Very nice work. Original front black bumper? Wow! Very rare. Love the original front tires, don't forget to paint them up.

Great to see some familiar names still here, and yes I'm just mustering up courage to paint front tyres slimmy, they're NIB and I never realised they'd end up being so rare after Rere .

Oh yes and its all Mk 1 SRB except for a mk 2 front right lower swing arm due to stripped grub screw thread on the mk 1
