The headlights look much better. I can't wait to see what you do for a pushbar.

I hate you KC!!!!!

Looks a ton better. Maybe the circles should be a little bigger, but I'm sooooooo fussy :lol:
I like the grill as it is
Maybe (I desperately try to find something wrong i this rig :lol: ) a "with smaller holes" grill?

Nice nice nice work.

a black grill would be better, this one looks a lil too much "bling" like as if the owner got a gold plated mesh grille for his pimped out landy...it doesnt quite fit the landrover theme..... :blink:

the lights are good, if I have to criticise at all, I think the black section should extend further down a little more, and he round lights should also be a lil further down too.... ideally the black section should end inline with the bottom of the grill...

check this pic to see what I mean: http://www.nationalcar.is/logo/K_Lan...fender-4x4.JPG

its currently vastly improved over the orginal tho... :chug:

My vote is for the Black grill! Out of curiosity what did you use to make the light covers and the turn signal? I do agree with spoon, if your trying to make it more Landrover then the light cover does need to be lower!

However, that being said, this is a stellar improvement! Definately something you should be proud of!

I think I can speak for everyone when say how impressed I am that you were able to turn that crappy bratz car into a 90% acurate Landrover!

Man I need one of those bodies.

If you can find another, I'll trade you a hitec 5645 digital servo, fresh back from hitec, and a few bucks.
