Default Extreme Makeover Not a Jero Edition

Another Build and a New Thread for you all.
Here's the Starting Point one Very Tidy almost too tidy Tamiya Pajero
Sourced Locally it used to belong to LondonF350.

Look away now Leo Because i'm so sorry in fact we were even talking about it on the way back from the last meet.
Leo) So what you going to do with it?
Dready) Tidy it up probably keep it pretty Stock,
Leo) Cool because it is pretty Tidy.
Dready) Maybee some New Paint?
OOPS!!


Anyway been busy fiddling and here's as it stands at the moment.
Basically:-
Removed both Bumpers off the body, both chassis ends (the rear is being rebuilt out and up to incorporate the interior and to clear the Top links bars.)
Losi Comp Crawler shocks have been fitted so four holes were cut in the chassis to allow them to mount higher.
The i trimmed the excess to allow for the Wheels to clear
The Side mouldings are being smoothed off the doors and the tailgate is coming off as well
Loads more to do i'll get some more detailed pics up once i have the Body Mounted properly

Talk about extreme makeover!
Is it just me or are the wheels inside-out?
Oh, and by the way, nice work so far.

Yep mounted backwards.
The look meaner and you get a bit more offset to help push the wheels out.
The need some 2mm spacers made to give it abit more

That's exactly what I was thinking when I saw this. I haven't seen any others that use that setup for an upper shock mount. Subscribed!

Cool build
Are those the RC4WD steel beadlocks? I see above where you have flipped them. More of a run-what-you-got look
