here ya go! this is still work in progress, but here is what is done so far....

Posted Image
the snorkel, i couldnt route it thru the fender, as there wasnt as much room as there is on the EA cars... but it turned out ok I think :D

Posted Image
here is the paint job, I tried to do this as budget as possible, which made it look rather silly... and I have not finished the other side, due to some technical errors...

what do you think?

i figured, it can be cheap and cheesy, it is for offroad anyways!
