Default Project: Shiny!

This build is for my boy. I am calling it shiny because of the bling bling on this thing. Too much for me! I got most of his stocker put together and now i got this chassis in and he wants it now? Here are the specs and a pic


fj40
K2-3S
60mm shocks
pede tranny
then more crap to add as the build goes on...

Take some 1000 grit sandpaper and wet sand the chassis till it is completely smooth then hit it with some aluminum polish and a buffing wheel. It will shine like a freshly chromed bumper.
