Al,the decal came with the crane kit as generic decals.

Got the bumper/headlights done,the h/l backing was done gloss black followed by AK chrome.



Here it is mounted.



Fitted the kit supplied telescopic lighting unit (night breakdowns etc) sprayed black/chrome,lost a lens though.......



Also fittted the main driveshaft - engine to transfer box.....


Fitted an amber beacon to the roof - just seen here....

Looking great, Nige. A small piece of blister packaging should fit for the lens nicely.

Great work! Love the look of the headlights and the roof set - I'm sure you'll figure out a replacement fix in no time
