Also ordered some wheel arches. NOT bland rover ones!
Look not too different to standard and 10cm wide.

Nice! This Sj is coming along awesome with some great looking work! Looks like you got the link geometry pretty good and there's minimal roll steer :thumbup:

She's gonna be a little weapon offroad!

It was the closest non mettalic colour i could get for painting the underside, then i realised as it dries it comes out really nice so i carried on with it. I didnt mind the original colour but the paint match was a pain.
It looks loads better in real life

Such kind words thank you. Yes im very happy up to press, i took abit of knowledge from race car geometry and it seems to have paid off, theres alot of percentages involved.
Cant wait to try it out, almost there :armsup:
