Those pics turned out great! Wheels look right at home with that paint job!

Can't wait to see the video!

Oh and I forgot to tell you last week, Happy Birthday!

Excellent color scheme. It adds a lot to the appearance over the RTR color.

Thank you! It definitely accents the killer body lines on this body. It's easily one of my favorite RTR bodies, nice lines, good classic look, molded grill, light buckets, front LEDs, and nice decal sheet. I just wish the lexan was a little bit thicker, but for this price point I can't complain.

I've been avoiding all Sendero threads... especially this one. Trying to figure out how much Ramen I'd have to eat before being able to cash in my grocery bucks for Sendero bucks.

Paint looks great as others have said. Rig looks fantastic with that particular two tone scheme and wheels. You've really got a good eye for what works and you just nailed it again.

Going back to lurk in the shadows for now. Cheers!

Wow, that is a huge improvement. The stock body has kept me from purchasing one of these, so far.

I was finally able to get the video up from this weekend, not too much technical crawling as usual but tried to get a little bit of all the different trucks I got footage of in there. Good times were had.

Enjoyable thread TB. I agree with above sentiments, your paint work beautifully compliments the Senduro body lines. Nice selection of pics as well. That ugly looking group of Banditos look to have had a great day (-;

Thanks Duke! Really appreciate that. These trucks have their shares of tumbles and fails, those just donít make the reel.

Youíre Sendero looks awesome. The terrain out there is amazing. We have boulders and more boulders. On the plus side we have lots of shade.

Back to page 1 to follow up on this, I should have screen captured it, but one of the Element RC fellas on FB said that the clear body is a thicker lexan than the RTR

Anyone pick up a clear one and can confirm/compare?

I was surprised that they picked my truck, definitely happy about it! Thanks for sharing . For those that don’t have facespace, the banner pic is attached.

Huh...

How did I miss this build?

(got pointed to it by a comment by DukeMinnix)

Awesome paint, silver grille and chrome 8-hole wheels make it a retro trail rig beyond comparison...

Dang!

Got around to getting the Proline Classic interior installed and itís a nice fit but also leaves a bit of a gap behind the bench seat and the back of the cab. Nothing too major and a little spare lexan and inside the cab painting could fix.

Also repainted the outside of the body so I can give it a chance to cure properly before trailing again.

I really wanted to find a Fall Guy action figure for the driver but itís proven to be a difficult task. Still on the hunt. Hopper in the driverís seat for now.

I despise taking interior pics, but below are the best I could come up with

Hey thanks Durok! I appreciate the kind words. Definitely wanted a classic look and I think this body pulls it off well.
