A pair of PIAA fog lights flank each side of the lower grille. the rear door hatch licenseplate cover and window wiper was filled, then sanded smooth. the rear window wiper was removed, then shaved, while the Defender worx taillight rings were installed, thereby accenting the rear portion of the panel.

The running boards are protected with a pair of custom-milled Rhino manufacturing step plates. many of the interior surfaces were sprayed with Alsa paint. Also, help came from painters kody Compton, Shane Dorrity, Alan Pinkum, and Phillip mcCurity. then, work moved inside of the vehicle.
