Thanks guys!

So I have not had a lot of time to work on this one, but I did get to start on the light bar.


And a few other random pieces. I also had a issue with the hood, I never braced it underneath and it ends up breaking, so I braced the bottom sanded it back down and primed it again.


I have a couple of other projects I have to get done first and then hopefully I can button this one up.

I'm thinking its for sale now.

Got some progress done.
New paint and a aluminum roof.









And the light bar is done. I just need to find a couple more Axial light buckets.


I didn't want a bunch of holes in the roof, so I made the light bar braces mount in the same holes that the aluminum roof panel does.




For the front end I had some yellow hilux lenses, I thought they looked pretty cool so in they went. I also used some wind screen in a couple of layers behind the grill to obscure the servo sitting behind it.






There are a couple little things too do. Like change out the winch controller, add front inner fenders, make a battery cover, and grab a couple more light buckets, but everything big is done. So if someone else wants to finish if off I am more then willing to oblige.

Thanks everyone for following along.

Unfortunately at this time I don't make chassis' for other people. I build what I like and then sell them. Lucky for everyone that wants one I have a short attention span, but you better be quick or you will miss your opportunity.

I love the look of this rig.. It's got a sinister stance going on.

Little update.
Made some front wheel wells and am working on the rear.
Just some styrene painted black and shoo-gooed in.



More this weekend I hope.
