Hello all, just to show the new 'old' rear rusty cage I made, new wheels, thanks to Rouge Element and tyres from SRBBloke. You can just see the dash I put in, non standard of course. I got feed uo of looking at the front post so with a little help from some seagulls, no more post :)

Have run it a bit, but just poser shots now.

I'm running the RCChannel suspension kit so had a bit of fun fitting the rear cage and wheels but I think it came out ok. The front and rear have the same track width now.

Hope you like the changes all comments welcome good or bad, have a good one

1 now has a dashboard with dials rusty rear cage 1 no more front post new shoes

Thanks for the complements guys, the rims need a bit of ageing and I need to get the bolts in , (then engine, wheel wells, etc) its coming together slowly

Thanks guys, glad you like it. Cheers bud, tyres worked out perfect as I really like the tread but the others looked too wide on the arches. I had the wheels and tyres for a while before thinking I wonder if they will fit, doh. I think I saw the bird effect on here or some where a while back so can't claim it. It's the mk2 hanger I lost the original, ha ha
