Default SCX10ii-Round 2

Round 2. Doing this build for the same guy I just did the bruiser for, but this is for his neighbor. Plans are as follows:

Ditch the stock body, wheels, tires, and front bumper
Mount up new Hilux body
Replace stock wheels/tires for 1.9 Wagon wheels and a better tire(undecided)

Not a long list at all, just a quick little build for his neighbor thatís new to the hobby.






Plan is to recreate this truck. This is his truck that he has back in the 90s so this build will mean a lot of him. Definitely gotta do it justice. You may notice this truck is a single cab, where the 1:1 is an XtraCab. So, he wants me to paint it as a single cab, no masking on the back windows.

Holy cow! I completely forgot about this thread lol. Sorry yíall!

Anyways, hereís a final update:



4/16:

Got the body mounted to the chassis. I really like the way it sits on the chassis.


And of course I had to try it on my chassis. I really like it on my 10ii, may even get one for myself lol.



4/20:

Detaping the body. Love getting clean paint lines.




4/25

Had some miss-communication with the customer about the windows. Turns out he actually wanted them black. Oh well, just back the whole truck with black.


Iím not 100% happy with the paint job, but heís happy so thatís what matters.

Pulling off the masking and overspray film on a freshly painted body is one of my favorite things to do in RC... it's like X-mas every time.
