Default Put TLT axles under my RC WINNABEGO!!!

I put tlt axles under a 13-inch wheelbase stamped steel toy Winnebago from the 70's, using leaf springs from hi lux, R1 transmission and couple punisher shafts. Rides on stock unimog tires/wheels, 65-turn integy. FOR PICS. SCROLL DOWN PAST B.S.

Went in antique store looking for 50's dump truck for 1.9 scaler build, ended up with this. Wheel base being 13-inches it was easily possible, 2 days later... RC WINNEBAGO!

Same truck... Get that puppy going its a blast.

Fun/frustrating to drive... It's a new sort of challenging. "Rough" terrain isn't hard to find.

4 wheel steering is next, used throttle/brake servo mount from t-maxx.

THats awesome! Get a styrene sheet for the roof and put a big a/c unit up there. I love the rusted out look. Very "Cousin Eddie". :-)

Have stock roof, it's rounded and HEAVY. Keep it around but don't drive with it, too top heavy and no light for pics. Was thinking lexan but styrene sounds better, it's white and light.
So... Do I stay with rust, get some white wheels n make em look all rusty,etc. Or paint it back stock, with it being steel, quality paint job is a body shop away.
Opinions welcome.

I like the rust look. Maybe just get some rust paint on the black wheels. It looks awesome.

Yeah metal roof would be rough.

X2 I think it would look a lot better with the stock paint job redone.
