As you can see by the pic next to my out of the box yellow Bronco, this blue beast is anything but stock.

Purchased items for the modifications include-

Olson Brothers – Roadster doors and flares

Fireball Modelworks- Weighted Mud King XT Tyres, Five slot mags, 3.5” suspension lift kit and 9600LB winch kit.

Some scratch-built mods include – 2” body lift, body mould removed, tailgate removed, steering linkages and dash converted to RHD, front and rear bars made from brass, roll cage and sliders also brass.

And donated from a 2014 Mustang kit are the seats, air cleaner, radiator and fans, Coyote engine and transmission.

I couldn’t decide on leaving it clean or mudding it up, so I compromised with a little bit of dirt down the left-hand side as if it was driven with two wheels off the edge of the road along the soft muddy shoulder.

Isn't there a worldwide law which states all round rollbar mounted lights must be KC HiLiTES? :D

Nice work on this one, Robert. It absolutely has "the look". :)

Two  beautiful builds with a great contrast between stock and what we all would rather have. I like your idea of mud on one side only so that you can also see just how nice it looks when cleaned up.

Love the 'Roo Bar! That colour is sharp too. What a great  build.

Were the Olsen Roadster Doors difficult to install. I want to use a set on my Bronco, but have not bought any yet?

Quite a modification. How did you do the body mods?

Lee. body mould was sanded off. Lower rockers were rounded by sanding as well. Wheel arches enlarged with a Dremel to accept resin flares. Doors and tailgate were removed using the old cotton saw method.

Alan, Roadster doors were quite a good fit after cutting the original doors out with cotton. only had to sand a couple of spots of the resin inserts that overlapped behind the rear quarter panel to make the outside flush.

very cool build. Both the Olson and Fireball resin parts are very good. The Olson hood is excellent.
