Default Barn Find Body..

Here are some pics of my new AX10. I love it and enjoyed putting it together. The only mods so far are supersoft springs and a Specktrum DX3.0 radio system. I also as you can see mounted the battery over the front axle. I was goin for the "Been in the barn for 30+ years look" with the body. Tell me what ya think....

you should try wet sanding it, it should take off the shine but not scratch it all to hell.

There is a painting technique where you paint rust color under the body and then paint the outside of the body in flat colors. As you get rock rash, the paint scrapes off and it ages the body in a way that looks really scale.
