    Progress so far. Messed the roof up but leaving it alone for a week (inlaws arriving tomorrow ::cry). This is one crazy hard paint job.

    Big step forward today – got the front fender trim done, and the fenders painted.

    This first photo is with the Mad Moose portals, so it’s looking lifted because I haven’t dropped the suspension yet to compensate.

    Roof and right door are both still in progress.

    Thanks ::thumb:: It’s not coming on Sunday – grill mounts are being reworked so it’s really fragile at the moment. New J2 chassis arrived so have to swap portals back out for the Axial axles, and try fix the winch so short on time too.

    Actually looking forward to a run with the Trailcat where I don’t have to worry about breaking another windscreen :-)

    And in other news today, it turns out Fourth Protocol can build a better Legend than New Bright can. I do like their front fenders though. Angling the top bit forward and down looks mean.

    RC4WD Baja Claws might be a good look for this?…

    Started with 2.2 Baja Claws and yeah, they’re a good match for the Legend, but a bit too large for a SWB. Went with the MIL SPECs because the camouflage paint job gives it a military look anyway.

    Could try 1.9 Baja Claws but not keen to throw more money at it ::yikes

    I have a set of 1.9 Claws mounted on black 8-hole Vanquish beadlocks that you are welcome to trial fit at an LSTR meet to see how they size up…
