    Next up: weathering, or more like "dusting" up. The body already has some "rusty" spots. What I'll do next is make it looks like having cross the red dirt Australia down under landscape using these tools:

    Highlighting panel lines, not to much, keeping it simple.

    Pale black rock slider....

    Jeep front, highlighting the headlights...
    [​IMG]
    The rope needs some touches too..
    [​IMG]

    A new black hardtop doesn't go well with the rest of it so gently brushed that up a bit too..
    [​IMG]

    Final results are hard to see on picture but I'm happy with how things turned out..... now iI can breathe LOL

    Nicely red 3D printed Jerry can and carrier. Not going for the red color and chooses to go military green instead.

    Just gets better and better, I didn't think it was possible! Your very creative and it's one of the best builds I've ever seen! Where did you get the winch?

    Well folks, all good things come to an end. Last picture tsunami with.... Bullitt hole?
    [​IMG]

    Who's to blame?
    [​IMG]

    Yup, zombie Duke! Revenge for cutting off his head ;)
    [​IMG]
    (Had a small imperfection on my old lexan front screen so a Bullitt hole is more attractive.)

    No Jeep without the stars and stripes. This time not in black and white like the rest but in color, it gives that something extra...

    "One life Live it" Land Rover? Not on this Jeep.

    Aerial antenna for radio on the go...

    Gear Head decal for appreciation on them fine rim.

    Oh no, he's still there....

    Maybe this will help LOL

    Here's a "before and after" comparison.

    That's it, done for now. Next week going to hit a long track, so hopefully the hardware can stand the test.
    Thanks for watching!

    Cheers

    Hi folks,

    Been a while sinds last year but its all hot and warm here in Holland so itching to do some changes to my Jeep. Torn between keeping the hardtop or ditching it and go topless. Finaly took out my "chainsaw dremel" and started cutting. man I hate this cutting stuff, really bad at this. It wasn't straight at all so i needed to filed alot pfffff :(
    Anyway got it shapped up pretty good, top of the front window frame was a fixerupper though. Rear bed was tricky, never fab a full rear bed before with somuch styreen so took a deep breath...go!
