Avenger rally car almost complete but I just dont have time to finish it and don't want it to sit there. Brilliant project for someone which will take not a lot of time or effort to complete.
The shell is in superb condition, it was stripped and the under side and shot blasted , then it was professionally seam welded, strengthened, gusseted ,stainless steel jacking box’s fitted , and a professional strengthening kit fitted from O' kanes, seat rails from demon tweeks, and new roll cage from safety devices. The car is painted in wardance red original tiger colour, the roof is not perfect with pitting so will probably want doing again. But not bad.
