Cheers mate

the wheels will updated down the line mate also i have another leafed hilux and it don't really do what i want it to do, so i know the real marlin crawler is not linked , and the middle off the bed is not as long ,but i want to put this one in comps but the overall look will be the same ,

Little update...

Fitted the new fair led today (great job Rikk)

Also done a bit more bar work on the bumper...

Plus finished the 2 rock sliders , just got to get them to the right angle now , but it is slowly getting there

The metal work is not the greatest but its all a learning curve

Bit more work carried out, so just wanted to put a update

Back bumper is complete and fitted, also the front bumper is all done and fitted ....

Re-doing the 2 rock sliders as i want more off a angel so they look like the real deal

Made the back window with the sliding glass , but they are masked up so it does not look as good ,also sprayed all the under neath black and all the inside arches to give it more off a scale look ,

Last job today was using oven cleaner to get the paint off the bead locks, just so the wheels match up ..


hope you like the work so far,
