    Hey Barry, where did you get that body? Never seen it before. Almost like it enough to switch my marder beetle to it.

    The Mud Marder made it look more like a buggy to me and it keeps other tires out of the wheels. It looks pretty cool, but the side pieces I got were really not that great of quality tbh. It took a lot of work to get the ends down to be even with the body. the vac forming kind of curled out at the ends. put it this way, I make molds and a buddy has a former so I could have more and I decided not to ;)

    I drilled holes, used goop and pop riveted the side guards on and used a bunch of clamps, clothes pins and blocks to hold it all together. that said I still like it a lot better than the stock shape. I feel faster with this body LOL oh and the guards keep the dirt down well too

    I had a tough time between this and the toureg, but it didn't have an undertray
