Can't wait to see it on the trail. Thought of a color yet? I think I will wait and grab the next new kit out, be it another 10.3 or 6.... Now to just not let the wife know about the plans. *I just saw where you were undecided on a color, I just sprayed some PL metallic copper today and it looks pretty snazzy just my .02.

Still havent decided yet. My main stickers/decals will fade from yellow to orange, n the wheels im goina use are blue with orange accents rings. So i dont think itd look good with purple, but theres alot of people goin blue. Cant do orange or yellow because of stickers. Ive thought about silver or gunmetal, but im sure there will b alot of those colors as well. My 10.2 is a copper color, but it was supposed to be a metallic red, i dont know how it came out how it did lol.

You are humming along with 5e build, looks great. The shift boot mod is cool, I should likely give it a shot. Debris is the trans could get pretty nasty. I gather there is no resistance on the shift levers at all?

It goin together faster than i planned lol. It doesnt seem to put any resistance to them at all. If there is, its minimal. I can shift mine easily by hand. Definantly a good mod to give a go. Better than gettin any debris in the trans n destroyin gears or bearings

I like purple. Perhaps not all shades of purple, but purple is an under appreciated color.

It seems I have now painted so many bodies that it is getting difficult to come up with new color Ideas. I am using a shade of green I have never worked with before and quite enjoying the process. I may need to give purple a go one day.

Plum crazy is my fav shade, but i think itll b a bit to dark with the other colors. Maybe more a fusia, its still a darker shade, yet kinda brite too. If that makes sense lol.

If i could afford it, id send it to sootes n have it painted instead of doin sticker/decals

If you have Instagram, maybe hit up Moosejaw. He has been turning out some killer paint jobs. he does most all paint for Harley these days and did one for Crawl for a Cure. Not sure what he charges though.

Medium and dark purples are nice. A faded purple always looks good for a old beach truck or patina. I just try to avoid the purples that some people might read as pink. I am not much into the pinks unless we are talking about women

Just a small update today. I managed to get an order in at gspeed earlier. Went with the new colored cf v3 chassis in the blue flavor. So within the next week or so i can get started on a chassis for this beautiful rig. Only got the main parts i needed for now. Still have a few more chassis parts i need to get yet.

More updates soon

Making nice progress bama!

Great job on the shifter boots! Looks like a big improvement over the stock setup. I'll be doing this to mine for sure!

Can't wait to see the blue GSpeed CF rails. Great choice! I love how the blue ones look!

Not much of an update. I did manage to get my VP hex tips in yesterday n a 20mm ssrvo horn. The tips of my skyrc ones were gettin pretty wore down. I did have to drill my handles out a bit to get the new bits in them.

Awhile back, bmow had a good idea for his v3 build. So think im goina follow suit on my phoenix v3. He made a motor skid/guard out of kydex, which looks pretty cool. I ordered a thin sheet from ebay awhile ago, it took forever for it to get here. Its been sittin on the shelf for months now lol. So hopefully when i get to that part of the build, i wont make it look like a hack job...

Thats all ive got for now. More comin soon, i hope...

Hey brian, been workin on the kydex skid for the motor. I flipped thru your build thread but couldnt find any pics of how u done yours. On the section goin up to the motor, did u cut it even with the inside of the front link slots?

Got any pics of how u done it? Much appreciated for all the help brother!

Hey bama! I can't remember what pics I posted, but here is what I have on my phone. If you need other shots of it let me know. I traced the skid onto the Kydex and then just trimmed it a tiny bit bigger so the links would clear.
