I'm back with a new project (Not BMW)

Postby m2onys » Tue Oct 12, 2010 9:47 pm

Hi all I have not been about for a while as i have been busy at work and on another project.

I have still got the BM and have been using it as an everyday car for the past few months.

I have got myself a Proton Jumbuck pick-up.

Before you laugh I needed something that was going to be good on fuel and cheap to insure and cheap to buy.

This is how it looked when i got it:

Image

It did not stay standard for long, it sat way to high for me and i did not like the roll bars on it.

Lowered rear end with axel flip:

Before:

Image

After:

Image

Then i found out that the truck was based on the early mitsubishi lancer Evo so i got hold of a Evo 2 front end and fitted it on.

Front end striped:

Image

New front on:

Image

Then i tought i might as well repaint it so all the dents were done and the truck was 2k primed.

Image

Then it was time for a colour change.

First colour:

Image

Next Colour:

Image

And now the fun of putting itb back together.

Image

Image

Now it is nearly done the BM can come off the road for some nice TLC and get wraped up for the winter.

that looks quite cool, I'm with sideways on the wheels, and possibly a decent looking backbox too.

do you have any more plans for it?

Wow that is so cool...I take it the colour was inspired via a certain RX7 from Tokyo Drift? looks sweet...bet it turns heads! If I'm right arent the Wira and Lancer similar cars? Because the Proton Rally car is a Lancer Evo ;)

The colour was actualy inspired by the old Arrows F1 team colours i've wanted a car that colour for years.
