Well I came across this body I always wanted on ebay and picked it up. unfortunately it didn't work out for my drifter (wb). id also just bought a welder and so this project was born.

started with the doors and rear section

lower section done. spent a ton of time making this thing square and fit like a glove.

got the roof cut out of the body, and the cab done. cant decide if it needs a roof or leave top open?

finished trimming the body. painted the inside black, and getting ready to spray white on the outside.

last night I got it mocked up and welded in the skid and shock tabs into position.

Cant see it from this angle but the body has a half moon cut out of it for the tire.

Light pods can be removed for a couple different looks. Grill needs to be painted.

although the light pod is the golden egg of this body, I think I actually prefer the rig naked. ie no roof, spare or light pod."thumbsup"
wish I had a set of 1.9 raw robby gordons here to throw on for pics. I think they would suit the rig better.8)
