So Mark, it went from the "Beast" to the "Filthy" Beast :tongue-out3: ;) .......weathering looks just right to my eyes, it is after all a fairly new, well maintained vehicle. Is it me or are the projectiles missing from the 12.5's in the link belt? Rick H.

Well I made a boo boo! :tired:tow cables ends are held with clamps that should be fitted at the same time as the cables but I already fitted them! So fingers crossed this will work. Cut the hoop off the cable eye, thread some wire through the bracket and ca together, if it doesn't work there will be no cables.hopefully they will be passable with some paint. 20220305_190548.jpg20220305_190536.jpg20220305_191456.jpg20220305_191229.jpg

After lots of messing around with the cables I decided the supplied thread wasn't going to work as it had to be threaded through a small bracket but wouldn't go because it kept fraying and unravelling so I had a go at making some by using some strands of very thin wire That came from the outer casing of some armoured electrical cable . Pretty pleased with how it's turning out as it's the first time I've tried it. New phone hopefully I will suss out how to take some better pictures!20220306_212732.jpg20220306_212908.jpg
