After i killed the first one i did (goddamed s**t gutters) i decided to have a second go at it to remove some of the um "features" i managed to work into the first one, this time im much more pleased, didnt warp, lines up real good (im just worried about certain parts seperating) right now the rear edges are cable tied to the gaurds (untill i can come up with a better soloution) sorry for the craptastic picture (will get better one tommorow)

some day (once the motivation levels rise again) ill get around to doing a rear.

kind of bolts on, kind of doesnt,

REO and irons are a bolt on item, wheel arch lines up, but parts of the EF bumper cover have to be cut and reattached so it fits in around the headlights, and the mounting point on the front gaurds are very different, it is a big job (it would be easier to get a fiberglass one made from someone whos already done it)

ive got to get around to some changes/repairs on this one, i can see some cracks popping up under the paint in two places , so i think a bit of fiberglass is in order!

will take a daylight shot tommorow (by the time i got home today it was dark)

daytime pictures, (well what you call "daylight" in ballarat - must be the shadow from mount doom)

rear edge is still hanging down (still held on with cable ties) will have to do some touch ups on it (some ripples along front at headlights and grille) and a coupla places where it cracked (near mounting points),
