not a lot to tell really, bought it whole, cut it up, mounted an escudo tank, cut some of the front guard, hammered the inner guard, slapped on some spacers/rims/silverstone 15 tyres. Made a kinda cage, made up a spare wheel carrier thingy, added some 3mm checkplate onto the roof and closed in the rear guards with the same, painted it in my garage, Put the key in and started it. 4k (or thereabout) total. $1300.00 truck, $500.00 rims, $1500.00 5x tyres, 4 x bolt in wheel spacers were a contra deal for some other stuff i had, tube was free, $150.00 odd for a service kit, sundry expense for cutting discs, aerosol paint, mig wire and arc rods (max $300.00 I'd be guessing). $60.00 primer, $100.00 "desert sand" paint (cheers Dan!). $100.00 2 x harness', $80.00 check plate (cheers Jayde!!)... whats thats come too? $4100 maybe?
Future? Add into cage with some diagonal bracing. Got some beadlocks being made for me for about $100.00. Only catch is I gotta drill the freaking holes and supply the nuts n bolts. (mates an engineer who is going to form up the rings and stitch em onto the rims for me... only cost is the flatbar. I'll still flick him some coin for doing it though. Hes doing another set at the same time.
Ill pop some conveyor belt onto the rear guards, and look to make an A frame for it too maybe, along with a front nudge bar. That'll about do
