Haha sweet man, would love to see this at a members meet one day!

How long did it take you to complete? Love the exhaust, and the number plate (The Wirral Mid Life Crisis lmao)!

Got any photos from during the conversion, would be great to see the stages and the work thats obviously gone into it.

Is it based on a Baja?
