Geos on pede fronts

This is my under 350 built, actually its right at 350 because I had esc, rx and tx.

Looks like a good start, its good to see you build stuff too. Trim that body and get some pictures with the body closer to where it will go upon completion.

Some painting questions
Answer them please everyone
1. How cold is to cold to paint a body? Outside its 30 F, in the garage is probably 50 F, too clod?

2. Trim the body and drill body holes, THEN paint the body?

3. Anyone want to drill out some bevel shafts for maxx yokes and install them, ill pay you, I dont have a center punch, and Ive screwed up once, I know its not alot, but to me 10 dollers each time is a pain the ***!

Thanks everyone!

1. How cold is to cold to paint a body? Outside its 30 F, in the garage is probably 50 F, too clod?--Probably not, Paint it and bring it inside.
2. Trim the body and drill body holes, THEN paint the body?--people have their own opinion,i'd Paint it..let it dry (of course ) and trim it.

Buy a center punch.It would be cheaper than paying somebody each time plus shipping.

You could paint it, what I do when its really cold is just warm up the paint, hot water works good or just leave it by the heater. Then just run outside real quick, spray it, take it back inside to sit for a few and repeat. Might get a little hi from the fumes but it wont effect you much.


The smell from the pactra spary cans is kinda nice

Trim, holes, paint.

Like Terrible said, warm it up inside, then run outside.

Put the can of paint in a bowl of hot water, shoot a thin coat, then use a heat gun or hair dryer on the inside of the body to help it "flash" quicker, just dont get it too hot..........

No its not translucent. Its clear!! I know its translucent, but if I backed it with silver or white, the body would be silver or white with a tiny amount of blue speckles! TINY amount!
