A darker paint or multicolor paint job really makes this look better. Hoping proline does better next time.

Blue seems to look good on it

I agree, the darker color does hide that body line pretty well. Nice color!

That blue looks awesome on that body.

I'd like to see what a set of 1.55's with 3.7-4.0 sized tires look like with one of these bodies.

That's the plan for this one. I've got some growlers going to put on it. I do want some 1.55 rock beasts though.

Not bad. Tell us how you did the rust.

I used some of this from Hobby Lobby. Paint on the iron paint in your desired location then spray it with the oxidizer. I put mine in a trash bag for a day or so and before you know you have rust. I also painted these bodies on the outside.

VTH, had the best paint jobs I have seen on his second Gen Proline SR5 pickup. I'm certain his technique will spill over to the 4RNR

Waiting for our LHS to get these. They do look a bit narrower than the stock SCX10-ii body. No rubbing issues?

I haven't run the truck yet but looks like I'll have slight run at full articulation in the rear. Front is just shy of rubbing.

Still need to detail it but wanted to see it on the rocks.

Just looked at some 1:1 pics of them and while the line is definitely there on both the 4runner and pickups it is way less pronounced and doesn't curve down as much. I think the silver paint makes it even worse. It is much less noticeable in the later pics with other colors and graphics. I think I need to see one in person to make a final judgment.

I think what VTR did with the full length body stripes, seems to hide that line the best....
It's not a BAD body. In fact, it looks pretty good.
I almost think that Pro-Line was TRYING not to make it look too much like the old Kyosho body.
That body line IS a bit excessive, and the lack of recessed headlights - given today's technology, is a FAIL.

I HOPE that Pro-Line reads these......

I agree man. Would love some 3D parts too and then I'd repaint on the outside.
