testing out lights




fitted some more stuff

chrome handels



statesman power outlet



now some issues i started to pull down the motor to find this so i was on the hunt for a replacement







i then was given a lsd and 345 diff from a ef/el so i removed the center for the wagon



Now to yesterdays update i was given cj's subs back (the ones with paint on there) trying to work out what to do
