Default Spare parts budget build

Ordered a Proline Bug body for my daughter for Christmas last year. Was in LHS couple weeks before Christmas and asked her what she thought of the body........she turned her nose up and said "yuk" it's been laying around all year.

Bought an SCX10.11 Honcho several months ago to update my G6, so my old chassis been sitting idle too. Finally decided to put all the spare parts together and make something of them. Just got it finished today.

The chassis has LURC FI spools, OT shafts, narrow XR mod with DIY brass tubes, wildboar drive shafts, a 60T motor and rear links from a Redcat Everest 10 to stretch the WB out, DIY stainless front links and steering links, Big Bore shocks, and take-off 2.2 tires / wheels from my son's Wraith.

Painted the body from the inside with Tamyia silver, white, and gloss black. Then sprayed the outside of the hood and inside of the windows with Spaz Stix no shine matte. Made inner fenders from sandwich bowls we had laying around and the front bumper from a U-bolt I found at lowes.

I think it turned out pretty good for a pile of spare parts. I REALLY like how the windows turned out. I don't like clear windows without an interior and just seeing all the internals. I'll use this method from now on for any truck I build without an interior.
