Default I've molested yet ANOTHER hornet :)

I couldn't resist... not too bad for a two-evening build

it's raining outside right now but I'll get better pics as soon as the weather permits it.

Nice conversion

I think you've molested more Hornets than the Orkin man

That looks awesome! But I really think you should do a 4WD version at some point...

Default awesome ford!

Looks great, my brother and I are in the process of gearing up a couple of frogs in a similar fashion. In fact my brother has the same body for his. I have a well used s10 for mine. We had planned to use brat rims/tires on ours but yours look so much better, how did you do the conversion on the fronts? I had tried brass tube for bushings on a grasshopper before but wasn't to happy with the results.

use stampede knuckles and axles so you can use any 12mm hex wheel.

Very clean and simple too (even though it doesn't look it). I'm sure a lot of older buggies will be getting a second life after seeing this.
