the paint turned out really good but this thing climbs so good i couldnt help my self after i put it back together to climb up the walls and tv and stuff like that. the paint was still very soft so it has trail damage before it hit the trail!!

It looks great!

I would love to paint & detail ours but it's too much fun rolling over on it's side.

I may have to do a 'shelf' body for it..............the orange is getting old.

Default Scratches

One thing I found useful was to wrap the side rails, cage, and bumper in electrical tape.They're painted black so it matches and protects the finish. If they take a really hard knock and scratch all the way through, I'll just re-wrap them instead of repainting...

Default Good idea

I think they make something like that for auto engine hoses as well...
