The blue is killer and works well with the black. The bedliner material looks spot on perfect. Love this rig.

What brand of jeep did you start with? I haven't seen another brand that has the separate chassis like the Hasbro, but your body has some different details compared to the Hasbro.

The one thing I didnt like was the orangish color head lights this thing has.
So I will just use some glue to hold the grill and rad housing together.
i just made a notch in the grill shell for the back of the housing, drilled a 1/8" hole, cut the bottom of the housing in about half. Then you can see the diff much better I think. Yes that is the large axail one, I will prob cut the little bars off the cover.
