    Icon10 V8 Barbie rebuild.............

    well well found a loop hole and can do a build thread on my barbie jeep..that and Jim keeps asking about the bada@@ barbie heep...

    anyways long story short, suspension is kinda a mess..ideas there execution isn't...

    anyways top arm mount has done this to rhd engine mount...







    coils in the rear are just ugly and bump stops yuk







    then its just all this ugly going....









    this is the bar im putting on..



    plus same top but fully closed..



    so yeah long arms going in..more or less just gonna start under there again..

    but was always gonna change anyways , just doing in a bit quicker than i had planned

    so shes just hanging around for us to make a start.....



    updates to come...

    so it starts again.......

    its called a winch damper...its designed to drop rope or wire in something lets go....wet jumper or sack does same thing..must have if you run a winch,,just safety same as rated recovery hooks and such.....have to have in comps as well....
