I made up some body mounts with some aluminum that i cut up and bent with some velcro ( hook & loop ). It was my first time useing velcro and it works pretty good so far. I also cut the body out witch was my first lexan body so i think it came out great also after i cut it with a razor blade i then took my dremel to it with a sanding pad thing and got all the lines straight. The pics make the over all truck look like shit and in person it is proportional so sorry. It will probably help when i get some paint on this body

I want to paint the body silver on the inside and blue on the outside so when it scrapes the blue will come off and the silver will show under. What paint do i use? spray paint or lexan paint?

i dropped off my body at ( BRIANS BODIES ) for him to lay some paint for me and i cant wait to see the finish results. There were some stuff on the body that we were up on the air on but after brian did some searching he found a pretty cool pic that helped us out.

And no im not useing the exhuast idea but the body did come with the same rollbars lol. Well while the body is in good hands i decided to tinker more on the chassie installing lockers and cleaning the axles with a toothbruch to get rid of all the gunk. But it feels good knowing my axles have been overhualed with greese and i oiled all the bearings before i drive it again.

These little bastards are the ones that make you not wanna do the swap but with some pressure on the screws i got them to break loose.

While i was waiting on the body to get done being painted and my new tires i figured i would go ahead and run my electronics. I managed to fit everything in a axial electronics box and mounted it in the rear to look like a gas tank even tho the 1/1 is under the (cab,bed).

The body turned out great!!!! and in person out in the sun this body just shines and sparkles. Brian did a wonderful job painting this. I wheeled it for a couple of mins with the body on to see how it looked with the new wheels and tires. I like it and it doesnt look that bad but the tires are still a little big at 95mm tall. Any ways on to the pics

Its been along time since i have messed with this truck. I drove it after i got it running and it had bad body roll so i ended up putting it up on the shelf to sit. Well i decided it was about time to tinker on it so i started with another 4link set up and test drove her and no body roll at least none like it use to be. I also through in a light kit to run her last night in the swamp. ( sprinklers )



Pics are dark but you kinda get an idea

I dont know how long you have been into RC but when doing bodies, you should leave the extra lexan attached. At least this is how I have done it. Also, you only need to paint the inside. It will make for a shinier finish.

It turned out looking nice though.

I have been into rc for awhile and i wanted the paint on the outside so when i go out on the trails (rock crawling) it will hit rocks and branches and it will scratch the paint off and show damage kinda like a real rig.:thumb:

lol not unless some money is involved:D



I ended up taking the foam out of the chisels and putting them into the stock losi tires and wrapped them around my integy wheels with the 10mm off set. And for stock losi wheels i actaully think they look really good.

What do yo guys think?
