You guys do realize this thread is almost 4 years old right? Good on you for searching. Sometimes links and pictures die with age though. Might PM the original poster for info. Or, you could PM saydee1800 for info.

I am pretty new at this i just got my first crawler three days ago and decided to go with a micro first to see if i would like it...

but i decided to just paint the asthetics first. ( front bumper, rear cage, bead locks) looks alright thought and i think scratchs will only give it character

arizona pin stripes are bound to happen when crawling

Try clear packing tape. It's wide, clear and won't come off unless you want it to. They get scratched up bad from crawling, but I use it on my cab corners where the most abuse is directed and it helps alot! Just put it on and work it so there aren't any air bubbles. Also use paint made for plastic, not just cheap wally world 99 cent paint. Let it bake in the sun before putting it on the rocks.
