Default Nascarkeith's Proline Blazer CGR Bodied Blazer Wheely King

I got a Wheely King in a trade from dkchance74. This is how it came to me.

Basically, a stock WK with locked transmission and axles, 4 link up front, Blazer CGR body minus cage, Axial wheels, Proline Hammers, and a bag of spare parts. In that bag of spare parts was a Traxxas XL5 and a Epic 27 turn motor so that is what is in it for now. The spare parts bag also included the 4 link mount for the rear so I ordered a servo and the Revo parts I needed to get the 4 link set up on the rear.



Mandantory flex shot.

dk told me that the body could use a respray. It was a great color but there were a few light spots and an extra set of body post holes. I prefer the 2 tone look on the old Blazers and I have been painting my last few rigs on the outside to get those scale scratches so that is the plan for this one.

I got to work on filling in the extra set of holes and masked off the interior, bumper, and lights. Since I am not going to be using a CGR cage I cut a piece of plastic to fit into the bed area and covered it with some scrap vinyl I had laying around.

By the end of the day I had the holes filled and a nice blank canvas to start spraying color on. I sprayed the vinyl black and I think it makes a nice bed cover.


While I'm waiting on the coats of paint to dry I plan on flipping the chassis so the battery is up front.

Looks good sofar, my WK is still just a stretched and flipped stock chassis rig and I'm using that as my go-to rig for just going out and having fun!

Going for a "Vessels-style" Blazer?

That is cool but not what I'm shooting for. I don't have the Cage so I was just planning to make it look like a jacked up boulevard cruiser.

Here is how it looks finished up. I think it looks good.

Great detail work! Are you going to make your own cage? Even adding a single "street hoop" bar might be cool.

Thanks for the advice. I finally got the stuff to braze and gave it a shot. This is what I came up with.
