Default Not Another Jeep Build... JK It Is

Starting strong with a pun!

This is more to catalog what I've done to this rather than show off.

The rig started it's life as a trail honch, bought because of peer pressure and the oh so famous Budget Build Off. This is my first rig so go easy on me.



Upgrades before this thread;

ST Racing Link Kit



Boom Racing Sandstorm Wheels

Pitbull Rock Beasts



First modification done, that damn stupid front bumper. It's a PITA, gets caught on everything, and has terrible approach/departure angle. While I wait for being not broke... It's time to get chopped!



Fresh off the FedEx truck, the axial Jeep body, some cans of Tamiya Gunmetal, a can of Tamiya Flat Clear, and some Knights Customs hook and loop mounts.

Body mocked up after trimming;



Close up of the mounts;



Going into paint now, will update once paint is done and everything is mounted.

if you put a lower case L at the end of the file name, but before the period you will have reasonably sized pictures. Currently they are mega huge.

Oh should have fixed that. I'm posting from Tapatalk so it's weird.

Paints done, stickers applied but just wanted to give you a comparison of the body with and without the flat coat on.
