Wondering if I should continue this project as a custom, finished shiny model... or go the Dr Cranky route and make it an apocaliptic vehicle...

What do you guys think?

If you go apocalyptic, we will pretend those lowpros are run flats. ;) It would be a great mobile headquarters for such a build.

NOOOoooooo!! Anything can be post apoc. This would make such an amazing piece from the gaudy days of furry dashboards, rolling waterbeds and CBs. It does, of course, undeniably look like a goll dang fortress.

I have to agree wholeheartedly. This thing deserves a furry dash and some bright neon graphics under a shiny coat.

Man, it looks like a great P.A.B. (Post Apocalyptic Build) if I've ever seen one . . . you can go crazy adding all sorts of details to it.

looks great but,
instead of post apocalyptic you could build it as a pre apocalypse still do everyone shiny paint but bolt brand new machine guns and bright polished aluminum armor

just my 2 cents

That might be a great Idea... The first days of the horror... Pre- Apocolypse... lol

Thanks for the input guys... I'll upload some more photo's tonight with my recent progress... I'm still up in arms with what to do... I'm kinda just going with it.. see what comes out of it...
