Looking good mate.

Is the pan going to be painted black or with all that prep work are you going for a bit of bling?

Looking really great you have already done lots of work and are moving much quicker than many projects around. I really love the wheels very differnt to anything I have seen on a buggy before.

I reckon they are cool, and polishing will make them even better. Did you get these new?

i found powder coating to be cheaper than painting and stronger for the pan and so many colours
