If you are gonna paint it flat black, use Krylon camo, flat black. After mucho testing it is the only flat black that does not fade to grey after a little while in the sun.

It is the official flat black of Team Carnage Crew

I went down to the local Ace hardware store and of coarse they don't stock the flat black color but they do have all the other camo colors .

I order it and should get it by Friday, hopefully I can finish it this weekend.

that thing looks sick, but it needs a rear bumper and some crates or something in the back. I think that you should repaint the cab, unless you will be scratching up the back so that it matches. You said that it wouldn't just be a scaler. what else are you gunna do with it??

You guys must have looked at only the pictures and did not read rckjeeps post on him making a rear bumper with tow hooks.

I will be repainting the cab as well. Then I will take the nicely painted rig out and beat the **** out of it on the rocks.

Oh and I have some other "things" I am doing to the flatbed to make it more scalererer but you will have to wait until it is done.

rckJeep, since it would be a shame for someone to duplicate this like they did with Ralph...what do you guestimate a flt bed like this will run someone if they just had to have one???








BTW,although TLTs are the in thing/Fad right now....This is the truck that drew me from CT to RCC...Love it

Thanks! I still have a new in box TLT kit that I need to build. I just haven't decided what to do with the TLT axles and I am not in that much of a hurry because I love to drive this truck so much.

Unfortunatly for me, im still stuck with my old imac, but laptop is coming when school starts again. as i am only 15, girls, partys, rc, mountain bikes and snowboarding are my top priorities, in that order, so a nice comp is pretty unneccesary. so for now im just gunna go with a Jumbo sized pack of DEPENDSŪ
to stem the unwanted flow.

Alright so I have been thinking about the semi gloss look as opposed to flat black. I actually don't remember seeing a 1:1 flatbed painted flat black.

So I am wondering if I should paint it semi gloss then if I don't like it just paint it flat black? Or should I do the reverse and paint it flat black and if I don't like that then paint it semi gloss?

Originally I was thinking flat black because I am going to add some scale aluminum diamond plate to the fenders and bottom of the bed.

Your half way there,leave it flat black and if your not happy,go with semi gloss

No need to bust out with the semi gloss then you realize you like flat better...Im sure it would look nice but I have yet to see a flt blk bed.

Is the body gong to get trimmed and repainted a diferent color?

Oh yeah, with my crappy memory I completly forgot to ask the other question.

I was planning on repainting the cab but with all the scratches on the body I am wondering if just repainting it would look like crap because of all the underlying scratches. I really do not want to sand the body down before I paint it because I am just going to beat it up again rock crawling.

hmmm what to do???

Thanks for any advise.

If the body is that bad...simply scuff the body down and throw a few coats of Primer then Flat Black paint...2-3 coats will fill in most of the small scratches and make the deeper scratches almost disappear .This way you'll have a matching roller


if after your done spraying and the body looks half way decent,spray a single coat of clear over the bed and cab and consider it "DONE"


either way...your one step ahead with the new Flt Bed...it'll definately look scale
