I alway wondered about the graphics on UD2 are they supposed to resemble anything or are they just art designs?? They are really unique!

Nice one Mr Ritchie, another cool replica. What about a `Here comes da bug too ` chop rep. You could really go to town on that. All the best and happy new year from sunny North Wales. Lyndon.

Hi , i met you in the Volksworld show years ago when you asked me for a spanner .You where trying to start the flip body v8 monster. Yes i did have a sea blue looker on gold ercos and a 1303 at one time, but now have seen the light and cruise in an oval now. 
     Having said that i do fancy a new project, if i kept the 64 i had ideas of stripping it down ,roof chopping it and calling it `The Mighty Atom !  You still work on oil platforms mate?

it maybe just a coincidence but back in the '90's i bought 4 genuine brms from randy ingersoll in palm springs, when i stripped the old paint off  2 had that same shade of metallic blue , could be the original wheels from the underdog 2...
