Very pink, is it for a laiddee  ???  :D   Sorry couldn't resist that, good luck with the build, have you thought about a wrap instead of paint?? and maybe a 3" lift kit .

You have got to love the rear of the Predator, I know I am a little bit biased but with the lines of a Manx and a touch of Mel's magic it really is Schätzbar.

As for the paint, it all depends on what style you are going for.
Street or traditional?

well a wrap would be wrong as I'm a painter
I think the wilder the better something way outside the box tricky and not been done on a buggy I flaked my gp a few years ago its hard to find a combination that's not been done .....ideas.....

Seeing as it seems to have lost its headlight mounts it would be perfect for one of Muzzy's opening bonnet conversions. That alomg with a Manx style dash (I always find those flat dashes make getting in a bit awkward when you're tall) would make for the perfect British buggy imho.

I'd kill for an opening bonnet on my Volksrod so I'd defo go for that! It would make life so much easier in the long run.

There was a tub up for sale a couple of years ago which was 'Tonka'd'.  I guess many years ago it must have been on the scene, although I don't recall seeing it.
