Been a while since I posted here...usually just post my stuff on Facebook groups (so much easier honestly) but thought I would share all my progress pics and final pics of my summer project - turning the Jurassic Park truck I bought on clearance for $8.00 into a MRAP.

So here goes - lots of pics ahead:

Very cool.. do you have any shots of it next to 1:18 scale vehicles? Curious how it looks next to a HMMWV/etc.

Looks much better than how it started!
Thanks - I will take a pic with a Humvee

Oh man, you really turned that original vehicle around and made it shine, excellent work! Love the weathering!
Thank you

Do you wash everything and scrub it in hot water before you do any fabricating ? This helps with glue, or super glue, also sanding area to be glued helps, I take everything apart and use a scuff pad / sponge and dish soap in hot water and tooth brush in corners to clean all mold release and skin oils from your hands
