Bad *** Nylint upgrade!
 
So i found my old nylint crawler body down in my basement a few weeks ago and i want to try and build a scale replica of my dads old jeep.

Here is what his jeep looks like

Here is what Im starting with

Here are my plans:
*buy scx-10 artr
*lengthen/widen chassis
*longer drive shafts
*19mm wheel wideners
*new paint
*custom rollcage(maybe)
*flat fenders(maybe)
*dx3e
*rooster crawler
*35T Motor
*scale winch
*front and rear bumpers
*transfer case!
anything else I might want/need let me know

Here is where Im at as of now

Started sanding the body for paint

Cut off the old body mounts and Im going to plastic weld the holes. The big whole was for a battery at one time.

Good luck with this. Nice to see somebody building a Jeep that isn't a New Bright.

I changed my mind of the chassis setup. I'm going to make it out of 1/8th welding rod and braze it together.
