I'm 33 and can't even grow a proper beard! It'd probably be grey by the time it grew 😂

Thanks thats what i was going for

Few more pics, not really an update, just messing about with it in 2wd outside. What amazes me, the springs have nothing holding them in place yet they never fall out.
All the pics i drove in and drove out forwards
