Patterns were all but destroyed....on the upside they'll keep me warm for a while as I modify the design a little over winter :D

Finished with the bodykit for now....some alterations needed to make it fit better.

Overall for a noob attempt I'm happy with the result.

Got my front brakes sorted out over the weekend.

Not sure which Vitara they are off.....part number is on the pads so I'll trace em back for spare pads.

New




Old





A bit cold in my shop so some retasking of stuff needed :D




Wheel arches and bumper patterns next!


Then to make some better patterns...

Managed to finish the front end off.....almost! :D



Had to paint it grey for now.

It has a receiver in the bumper ala the Brazilian Jimjam

On with the rear prior to the next club meet so I can winch both ends.

Found a small patch of rust.













So I trimmed it back a little.







Do you think it'll buff right out? ;-)




Back on with it tomorrow.....
