well now that problem is over...

I weighed all my options and said eff it, and started hacking again.

I think it turned out well. It still has that "I used to be a Pajero" look, but it fits with the rest of the body mods...







It just clears now... I can tune the rest when the shocks get here..


That's all for now, time to do the dinner thing...

I would trim it from center of headlight to the edge of the grill.
but thats just me.

seeing you progress on this paj is making me itching to keep moving on mine. I'm doing bits and bobs here but nothing meaningful until I get the cross plates for the chassis rails I finally got (1/4" thick delrin!).
I should have those tomorrow hopefully so you'll see a runner shortly...

I think I get what you mean Pablo..

Not sure if I am going to mess with it anymore, but it might be worth looking into...

But for now, lets get the madness started!


Not much yet, I really need all of my stuff to get here before I get to carried away, but I think I know how I am going to map everything..

I ordered a 8 cell saddle pack that I hope to mount under a false floor in the interior, But I really need that and the transfer case to get here before I can mess with that...

Id like to do the inner fenders, but I figure I need to wait until the shocks and steering get sorted..

maybe I'll get frisky and do it anyway

A little more progress, I didn't like how the wheel openings looked like, well cut plastic.. So after some more cutting, and sanding, and sanding I had this.

wow looks amazing. what about a thin piece of styrene around the open end up the headlight, just needs something there to finish it off and "capture" it

once everything is painted, and the tube work is there, I think it will all tie together..
