Some nice looking rigs in this thread. I have a question for those who have cut there body, especialy those who pinned in the front end...

What are you using to cut the body to get the cleanest cut? Also what are some good materials to work with for finish work, I know styrene is a main material but what kinds of glues and body filler, etc.?

Here is a list of tools I use for just about any hard body.

Cutting
Thread
X-acto knife kit or Excel knife kit
X-acto med saw blade

Glue
Plastic weld
Plastruct bondene
Shoe glue
E 3000

Body filer

Evercoat metal glaze , it doesn't shrink or crack or bleed thru paint.

Update from this weekends run. Had an awesome time at a new spot, or more like area! I also decided to run the boggers off the mud truck and it's a good thing bc there was some nasty muddy spots. Enjoy!

I have another question for those that pinned the front end. How do you pull the fenders in and get them to stay with all the tension on them? Are you heating up the body with a heat gun to kinda mold the plastic?

I tried the thread cutting method and it was kinda a pain but I think my thread was old and weak, took a while to make some cuts.

Yes I did. About any inch total. I got the tires right up next to the leafs. I'm not sure how it's going to hold up in the long run but seems to be good right now. I haven't driven it much yet. I've been waiting on my foams from Crawler Innovations and then I can get the tires glued on.

I just cut out the same size sections on each side of the housing. Then used styrene glue to glue them back together and covered that with CA glue. I used zip ties on the outer ends to hold the halves together. After I got the housing the way I wanted it, I installed the axle shafts and marked out the length I needed. I pulled them back out and used a small bench grinder to turn them down to the size I needed to retread them, drilled my pin holes then used a die grinder to cut to length.
