Update: Got the rear bumper painted, added tow hook mounts and CB antenna.





All the electric fit in the bed very nicely.

Thanks herman!

Update: Since I got the front end cut up earlier, so I need something to cover up the gap. Modified a radiator from the LC80 and will mount it right under the grill.



Shout out to little crawler from Scale4x4 for the hard top.

Always gotta commend you for having the guts to run your creations out in the wild -- that's some confidence in your building skills (and well deserved too!).

If I may offer one comment, in this latest set of pics your steering linkage looks bright powdery white on my screen, I think it stands out a bit more than would be scale-realistic. Aside from that this is an awesome build, rest assured that when we get the new GSR site up this will be the featured ride!
