Nice.


So funny, I tried to help Emil at Iceland offroad get known and tried to let people see his stuff and tried to help him have a good rep and get lots of business... Then he tanks the whole thing...

It goes to show he had a good project if its already being knocked off almost exactly (besides quality, which is what he was worried about)

Ya I knew you helped him from thing I have read.. I just really wish he would have looked a little harder for some help with production so that he could keep the company going. If I was around the a couple years ago and knew he was having trouble.. I would have offered to help or even buy the company.(Really wish I could!!) I wish he would sell the molds to some company so they could recreate everything but oh well I guess. Im going to build mine from scratch and its gonna be awesome because it was custom made

Got the passenger front flare almost all the way done today I ended up only using 5 bolts to hold the flare on instead of 7.. I dont think I will ever need more but they arent hard to do if i need them. Lets just say its a good thing I have flares over the stock fenders now... I tried lining the bolts up on the fender before I drilled the holes but..... that didnt work out well so the holes are a little ugly Hopefully I get at least one flare 100% done by tomorrow.
