I've always liked the Sand Rover but never managed to get one. Having seen Stevo309's & DJTheo's oh so sweet green Rovers I thought it was time I got me one!
I picked this up on the bay - it was mostly complete needing only a front suspension arm and a large dollop of TLC! I stripped it and rebuilt it adding ballraces and the obligatory 540 conversion. The body was stripped, filled, sanded and re-painted in a rather groovy 70's metallic green, followed by 6 coats of clear and some Autoglym wax. I added some of Cul-tech's excellent alloy headlights and some Sand Scorcher Wheels and tires. I did initially put chrome rims on it but the white wheels just seem to go with the green a little better.
Having now run it, I can say that it handles like a pig on roller skates, but hey, that's all part of the fun right?!
Comment always welcome. ;-)
