Thanks guys few more details and it should be on the trail. On a side note are there any interiors I could look at fitting in this body. I donít want to just drop a bomber interior in.

The unveiling of that paintjob did NOT disappoint!

Super-nice...

Love that grille, too!

I was hoping the paint would be up to par Iím super happy the k5 grill fit nicely because the ďc10Ē grill was off. I did manage to cut the radiator out of the c10ís grill mount and have it mounted in there but the k5 grill have cross bars in the middle that I may trim out yet. Not sure if I can without loosing hold of the grill will have to look into that.

Thanks guys. Iím still waiting on my slightly bigger hexes. Decided to change up the wheels but they just didnít clear the knuckles. So wider hexes should fix that and then I can get the tires swapped over. I really want to run it this weekend so weíll see which wheels it still has on it

Hexes and inner fenders arrived today. Little tweaking with the inner fenders and they bolted right up. Spaced the rears off the slider with axial pivot balls so itís not hanging below the body. Got the tires mounted on the new wheels and now itís starting to look like a real barn find.

Got out on a local trail to test this thing out. So far I love the way it is. It sidehills great it climbs great. Only issues I had were hang ups on the front bumper which I already expected. The element crew did a dang good job on this rig.

Thanks definitely felt good to get it on the trail. Only issue I had was these damn rc4wd wheel nuts came loose again. Every truck Iíve run them on they always loosen up. Iíve even used loctite but they always seem to find a way to loosen up.

Thanks guys I was going to just weather the bronze wheels I had but was reminded of the rc4wd wheels that were made to resemble this era stock wheel. So with the weathered body I decided thatís the route I needed to go. This is my Barn find truck

Took the element with me to a local event. Ran my scx for the whole course then took the element out to play around after since I knew it wouldnít do some of the crazy obstacles this course had on it. Only snapped a few pics but this truck still impresses me how good it drives for being pretty much box stock.

It's seriously not your fault...

But - a little part of me dies inside every time I see that truck.

It's just that I know I'll never paint a body that will come out looking so damn perfect!
