Further Description/Back Story My wife and I got hooked on Crawlers quick with this. We chopped up a defender body into a bed style, moving the rear windows forward to create the cab. For the bed rails and utility cage bars we used hobby plastic. The bed liner is sand mixed with flat black enamel paint. Creating the body damage and rust really added to the uniqueness of this little rig! Excited to add more weight, lower gears and scale accessories. With any luck we'll find a Crawler competition in our area.
