Hi,

2007 is when it all happened at the Armortek factory a giant leap forward in the way tigers were manufactured, new tracks, new turret wrap new suspension, three piece sprockets with steel rings the list goes on.
This particular model had been sitting in a shed for I would say most of its life, used in the mud then left wet, not ideal!
It was a real work up to get it back to a standard I was happy with the hull fit kept me busy for a while.

And some more in no particular order - lowered rear deck and deck supports in place also exhaust studs - hoping to receive Steve Winstone Tiger bumpstops and headlight soon
