That's brilliant usage of the sunroof piece as the tailgate/hatch.

Thanks for the review 'ZoomZoom', another fantastic classic town collection there....pity about the windscreen eh ? :blush:
Plenty of accessories, shovels and picks to dig the 4x4's out eh ? :laugh:
Would easily fit the 2012 forest series in my opinion.
