I got this green Hurricane early in the year.. my first freebie of 2010 in fact.
It was missing the front bumper, rear engine cover, and the front passenger axle was broken off.

I stripped it down completely and gathered the parts I needed to make it nice again..

I cleaned and repainted almost every single part on this Jeep..
Only the silver rims and the charcoal suspension parts were not painted.

Here's a before / during / after picture show followed by a short video~


AS I GOT IT:






DISASSEMBLED:






DURING RESTORATION:












FINISHED UP TODAY:










LOOKIN' LARGE EVEN NEXT TO AN ESCALADE:




...and finally, here's a ittle video walkaround~
(sorry about the end, thought the camera was off)




Great vehicle.. Our first one and it'll stay for a while in our fleet.



Thanks,
Kev

You couldn't have picked a better color for that. The white makes it look like a differnt Jeep. Nice

Drive it like you stole it!........out of somebody's garbage!

Nice work kev I like how the poor barbie slade watches as you show attention to the jeep. I think I see a little pink faded tear on it in the fourth pick down.

Thanks~

Cooper loves the Hurricane.. I really like the 'GPS' feature..
I thought it would annoy me, but you can barely hear it while he's driving around the yard..

I got parts for this project from Hootie, Mama, and Mustangcollector (and Hobbytown had the sticker sheets)

All tolled I have $55 dollars in to it..
Good price for a nice 'new' Hurricane.

As for the pink Escalade.. um.. yeah... She's not doing so well



Parted, but not forgotten LOL~


Thanks,
Kev

Hey Kev as usual you did a great job. That white looks better than the stock green.. The hurricane is on top of my most wanted list but still haven't found it at the right price.
