Nicely done Martin, she looks great.

As far as the decals, how about something traditional, but with a personal touch.

Re: Dakar 2017

Here's some info from Toyota regarding the axle size difference: The rear is narrower to 1. Reduce weight 2. IMPROVES handling (due to 4x4 charactaristics) 3. Also improves handling in turns 4. A large part of the vehicles mass would be outside the turning circle at highway speeds.
