    Liking the rat idea... Not sure about painting the cage though, I imagine it would chip very easily.

    if you paint the cage mate, it will defo chip n flake,
    theres too much flex in the nylon ,
    but if you are going for the rat rod look, it might look good with the weathered paint look ,

    Looks good I quite like the white panels.

    Now you just need to get the 2 tonnes of grass out of it, their pretty good lawn mowers.

    Well after the grass ingest, had a go at some front wheel wells. Used a 2 litre milk bottle and a couple of small nut/bolts.

    Just found out I can't run a TR front shock brace with the kraken cage, SO tomorrow I'm going to attempt to drill it out to suit
