With that overall length sniper, this beauty could be re-badged as a smart car! keep the green peace lobby happy. :silly:

P.s black cage would look awesome. Used CIO on my Gen.4 gives a lovely matte textured finish, I'd highly recommend it for the exposed rear chassis & cage B)

That looks brilliant, you could reverse up a wall with that departure angle!

I'd vote black for the cage, have you considered Raptor lining it? That would give it some protection from branches etc as well as any equipment sliding on the tray. I Raptor lined my roof rack and it's much more durable than the previous paintwork.

Well matey i thought my jim was short on the rear.......but that looks brill B)
I would say CIO for the essayist or if you want to be posh
Raptor with one of their fancy tints say blue then do wheels with same colour
BUT we all know buzzweld ain't cheap ;)

It should be good in town if nothing else as you will be able to do that smart car trick and park across a bay without crossing the lines!

Called in at the workshop for a peek (at a distance) today......

Panicked as I turned the corner and found......



They've gone to the dark side I feared......

Popped back a bit later and found this.......



Terry was disgusted by my attempt to paint the rear chassis, and ground it clean (and sorted a fair bit of the rust I missed), etch primed it and then top coated in textured black Raptor....

He also painted the cage, black.... as voted for lol...

( tried 3 times to post and sort the pictures, everything is the right way up when uploaded but goes sideways when inserted... crook neck is not my fault lol)
