Nothing wrong with liking a clean looking stock BRAT!!!

I like that pic too....

But Mick had the desire and method to do what he did to it.

I'm liking what it morphed into.

Nice job, start to finish, Mick.....

Kind Regards.

You Might be a redneck if you mask off your stickers and decals when you repaint your rig..... :lol:

I love what the Brat has become, it truly is a real, full-size toy!

As George Carlin was fond of saying "Mammalian protruberances"! (insert appropriate 3 letter word)
Me, I'd like to see some underside pics. How did you split off the drive train? It looks like the rear has the auto style hubs such as Toyota used on the front when they didn't use the locking hubs. Sweet rig.

the rear is converted to a full floating axle using and adapter and a front hub/spindle and a drive flange.

Interesting rig although its a shame to do it to such a clean stock Brat.. There was a gen 1 in the area that the owner turned into a crawler as well, most dented/scraped up thing I have ever seen but unfortunately the owner thinks it is made of gold.

Rescue mission in the works for when I return to the states, handful of Brats I am going to make a go at if they are still there. Lost 3 to the salvage yard just while I have been gone alone :(
