  • Skunkworkz Turbo Cab Build Pics

    Bodywork Mods:
    Mirrors

    Then i done some samples of what colour tint i wanted to do them so they ended up the same as the Lexmaul Lights

    And the finished arcticle

    Before

    After


    Primer





    Paint:






    Refit








    New Colour sat nav screen & console, rear headrest inserts.

        Awesome work

        One Question tho........How do you refill the oil??????


        Do you Remove the Oil Breather pipe, turn it round 180' and pour it down through that?

        Or am i just being retarded

            I must admit your my kinda guy.....Very impressed with the detail you have gone to and also the colour choice because it would have been very easy to spoil it with a garish colour but i think its spot on and suits the porky wheels 100%...I enjoyed the read in TV and i think you deserve credit for what you have done..

            Well done , nice drive.

              Actually haven't had to yet as its service time any day now, but the plan is either use the dipstick or the rocker cover breather as i have some tiny funnels to help me.

              I find its the only way to be, its the small details that add up to make a great whole package, don't get me wrong rome wasn't built in a day and this took a fair while to get it to where it is now, but its the little minor mods that nobody notices that i like, as if it could have come out of the factory like it.
