Well I decided this paint job was wayyy to clean looking for a trail truck. I mean who washes and waxes their trail truck. Anyways, tried a quick weathering to get it looking a little more used. I think it came out pretty good.

I waited about 6 months for mine. But maybe he has caught up by now, im not sure. Just give him some time. His work is definitely worth it in my opinion.

Finally got my toyota emblem, thanks snail mail....



Grille complete, for now...





On another note, im so glad I rebuilt the stock kit shocks using some green slime to prevent any leaking......







Anyone have any suggestions on different shocks that dont leak, or at least dont leak as bad? Ive been thinking about maybe some big bores or maybe the shocks from the new trx-4

Rebuild the shocks using Traxxas X-rings, mine never leaked with these.
