Go directly to lack of JDM jail.
Do not pass OEM, do not collect style points

:P

Got this from Mesa Export as well, Had to get this from Europe as i couldn't find any in the UK. £65 Including delivery though! well happy with that, Rated for 1400kg's. should be enough to tow the race wagon!

Not going for OEM-Ness. Always wanted Beagle rails since i got Wagon Attack, These were a fantastic price with the flaps and lights. I needed them! Although i discovered the end cover for the nuts were broken today (The Internal Clip), So not sure what to do about that....Getting replacements wont be easy.

Ive also decided to eventually put Dyna-Mat style stuff inside the entire car - I want this car to be a beater, but i plan on keeping this one for a Looooong Time, And its just to damn noisy when driving! :evil:

Fitment isnt bad. Need to take the rails off and grind some of the foot plate away so it sits flat on the roof, as it currently sits about 1.5mm proud of the roof because of the insert

some new shoes, £50!

Seen a Shuttle on Mini wheels in the states and i liked the look, Silver on Red. These are white but looks like they have been painted using a brush so will repaint them at some point.
