Cheers men, thanks for following,  was a quiet week this week,
but i did redesign the wish bones, they were not going to work, so i made them movable,
by making a block to pivot and drilled out where the bolt would go through.



And came up with a color,  orange gold.

Thanks very much guys, but the mods just keep on being thrown at me, you change 1 thing, and then everything else needs to be changed to compensate.....

De-blinged the wheels today, masked up a few bits and threw the accent grey at them.




And then, to top it all off, i fitted my set of awesome resin rotors, i call them the "TJ STOPPERS" .   (thanks again mate)..  Very Happy

Cheers guys, got a little bit done while the racing was on...

Interior is done..



And had to remake the exhaust manifolds, as they hit on the suspension, then fitted the turbo's.

Hey DeeCee, what did you use to paint those seats?
They look great, as does all the front end work.

Cheers

Thanks very much guys,
Antwon, it is the exact same acrylic metallic grey I used on the chassis and wheels,
I just used a thicker mix, and blew it on from a distance, so it more or less went
on like a powder coat, the result impressed me too, first time I tried that on interior..
