Default Blazer to Hilux

The photos of the Blazer that will be converted to Hilux:

The order is FANATICRC with a gift mask !!​

Seeing how it works with a Blazer body, I have decided to mount a Hilux, which surely goes better hehehe, now it is dremel and sierra ...:




Here is the difference in size, I do not have a scale, but the blazer, it weighs a lot and is huge lol

I have only put the body in its place and the first problems begin hehehehe another day more calmly I start with it to see if I can lower the body more, it is my idea from the beginning:




Here glue the glass support and central dashboard with the air filter:

and also, by height it is already sticking the filter in the hood, and the servo protrudes too far in front because it has the radiator:​

There will be more progress soon​

The bars of aliexpress have arrived, I had others in their day in another hilux and they were much thinner, also the height, for my taste a bit tall, but this way they will protect more clearly. In the photos on aliexpress it comes with a Comanche body, but for that they would be small and do not fit well, although in the hilux, the rear supports, I had to fold them inwards so that they do not support the wheel arches, since the 4 support points are at the same height. For the rest they fit, they are 12 @ with shipping and include 6 LEDs and the 6 corresponding bulbs, I have not proven even if they are all white or if they are some red, I will tell you, for now some superimposed photos:

And taking advantage of the shipment I asked for some Chanquish, we will see in which car they go hehehe:

The A&M Garage bumper has arrived, a primer coat and a matte black one and in place with the included leaf spring support. Now missing paint finishes in addition to another color and the interior.

Looking good FREEDOM!

The A&M Garage front bumper is a nice addition and will work very well.

I see a rod end with link that is mounted to the front bumper. What do you have going on with that? Anti-wrap bar? Can I see a better pic of it?

Nice! Thanks for the pics!

I'm currently using the A&M Garage Anit-wrap bar in the rear on my Marlin. I never really gave it a thought about the front axle. I'll have to take another look at my front axle!

Some time ago I put leaf springs on a rcmodelex chassis and had to do an anti-wrap bar at the back, it was more efficient with supporting the chassis with rocker, but I tell you, I'm in tests hehehehe

is old , but better sistem:
