Default Bucking Bronco

Well, I pulled the saw back out of storage and decided the Willy's body wasn't my thing.
So I dug through some new old bodies I had and settled on an HPI Bronco body.
My body painting is limited by my skill and patients for painting of which I have neither.
I got the body all prepped and mounted with magnets, but something wasn't cutting it.
The grills always look horrible on lexan bodies, so I started chopping.
A few hours later in cad and a day later off the printer came this.
I apologise to the bronco aficionados for any off proportions.
Next will be laying the decals and some detail paint on the grill.

Modelled up some mirrors in solidworks at lunch yesterday and had one off the printer waiting for me today. Painted chrome and installed.
Couldn't decide what color to go with in grill, chrome for now.
Next up, lens and maybe some LEDs.
Traction bars for the rear to reduce wrap.

Could you tell me the wheelbase of those bodies? I canít remember what they were. I possibly found a deal on 3-4 of them but canít find info on wheelbase.

I like how the grill came out, After you chrome it and add the lenses with led it should look good. Are you adding a pick-up type box in the back?
