Significant improvement. Worth all the hard work Artyom.


Hello,Peter! That wasn't easy for me to do this and to get grills be strait. And those rivets,separate plates,sided with angle. Uff. At last it came to an end =))))

Yes those white plastic grille strips refused to be straight, Iíve had the same problem - the only way to line them up is to glue them to a base panel with spacers in between until the glue dries. Which is annoying because the whole point of the vents is to allow air to circulate beneath so there should not be anything in the way. But I think itís the only solution, neat job and good luck with the other 3!



Hi,Tim! I agree with you. It is a hard work. But for me was much more harder to separate the plates and glue 0,4mm rivets.

Little add on. I have installed the bottom. I just need to fill the gap and change the technology. Bottom first and the grills - second.

After a hard work with grills I have this variant. Was very hard to do all that and especially to separate upper deck . This is my final attempt. Three to go. Later I will do the grills bottom.

Greetings,friends! I hope your holidays were good! We have New Year holidays in Russia. Unfortunately I have mistakes in previous stages. That's why I need to make new variant of grills. I will need some time.

Greetings,friends! I've worked with air intake grates. This is an easy way but I've decided to increase their height with additional plastic. Drilled many holes and made new version of springs covers by putty.

Here is first and second variants.

Next week I will work with air cleaners and it's covers.

I wish you a Merry Christmas and spend this time with your families!

Superb work Artyom. A treat to watch this come together.


Unfortunately Bronco has simplified some moments with armor plates. It will be hard to fix. Now I seraching variants and should choose the optimal.
