MOD for 4x4 Off-Roader

Last weekend I was at an event from PLUG, where we had an exhibition stand at EXPOEVASÃO 4x4, an Off-Road and Extreme Sports fair.

So we took there, some Sets and MOCs related to the event subject.
Since the new TECHNIC Off-Roader (8297) is not yet available, I decided to make a MOD from the old 4x4 Off-Roader (8466) to make it more actual and PF looking.
See below a few photos o top of a real Off-Road beauty and the full set of photos at Brickshelf.

Basically all the TECHNIC Panels were replaced by black ones, suspension colors were changed, tires were replaced by their correspondent 'TECHNIC Power' version, seats got some orange parts to give them a more Power Functions look and some other minor cosmetic changes were also applied.
Although no powered functions were yet introduced to this version, which was only a style exercise.

I had the pleasure of seeing this beauty in person, and the "alternative" colour scheme really lends it a cool, sportish look! Of course, not that the original's metallic green isn't great, either...

I just think it could have an improvement, about which I talked to Fernando at the exhibition: put an RCX in the boot (or an NXT with adapter cables), connect it to three lamps with trans-red bricks in a line at the front, and program them to light up like KITT! ;-)

It's pretty cool!

Great work there Conchas!

Is the shift knob chromed? NICE :D

Yes, it is 'Chrome Silver'.
As well as the center stud on the Steering Wheel.
