im still trying to figure that part out,when my pop got rid of it,
it had a big rusty hole in the sides of the bed.

i would like to make it look like a new truck,but have
the rusty spot there for when it gets "beat up"
to come thru.??
anyone have any suggestions??

very nice truck .. and i think thats a .. kind of easy build with all the things rc4wd has to offer

you will need ;

wagon scale wheels http://www.rc4wdstore.com/2/product_...roducts_id=449

Dirt grabber tires http://www.rc4wdstore.com/2/product_...roducts_id=583

tamiya blue paint ( blue mica, telefonica blue or semi gloss .. whatever u like of those 3
TS-79
ts-51
ts-50 http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXRS45&P=7

but i think its the mica blue with that rust primer its gona get just a bit bit darker and it will match the color is my guess.

anyway very very nice truck !!

ohh and looks like you gonna need a western bumpers http://www.shop.rpphobby.com/product...productId=1257

and you are almost done .. just need a nice interior and thats all

i would like to made that nice truck but ... the last hilux i bought it never arrived. oh well

anyway nice build

ohh and please .. put a clear glass .. dont use the dark glass of hilux

Screw the 1/10th scale rig, I want the 1:1! That thing would be worth a mint now!
Eh, still I think you will do it justice, though.

got the front grill in and ,winch mounted up.
took it for a trial run,smacked the winch hook on a rock
and the damn thing snapped in two! what a piece!

i also used a cone spacer from rc4wd as a winch stop.
works like a charm.

got some trail damage, and added character.
swapped in some 1.9 flat irons,and cac 1.9 6spokes.

took the 80mm shocks apart
and removed the o rings and replaced w
some black urethane orings in a plumbers kit,($6-100 orings)
added a couple of drops of 35w shock oil..
no more sticky shocks.

and i used springs from the losi mrc.
silvers up front and black ones in the back

still waitn on clear lens....

im putin lights in as well.

off to work..
