Rear cage idea I wanted to build looks proline beat me to it. Ran out of styrene but it doesn't mean I can't make it even more custom. Proline part #6322-00 not the way I planned it but this might be a good thing to at same time.
In stead of buying the lhs out of styrene tubing. More of a brainstorm but I see a idea and might run with it!

Quick spray tonight. Before and after shots. Still needs some touch up but it looks like pretty good I think.

Just to mix it up a bit.
Team Raffee Jeep Comanche/MJ painted and drying. Still needs to find a chassis for it. And my first attempt at a two tone paint job.

For Ratty-Trucky truggy. Gonna try some random rust effects. Not sure if it will be a problem since I don't have a airbrush system.

Not to shabby but the stacks need some help still got to get the air filters painted. Happy progress so far.

Have a great one.

One part of the puzzle is still in the mail.

Michael's is a great place at times to find useful niknacs. Like black E6000. And other goodies for rc's and scale static models. Also so much less expensive than a hobby shop. Maybe not cheap as do it yourself.
*Sculpting wire to keep practicing the wire bend. And it's not a big deal to bend back into place.

No epoxy to hold it down yet but I'm sure liking how plyable it is.

Little bit of a rear shock tower relocation. And rechecking the how it mounts. Since I didn't have this done when I first cut the body I may have to redo a little trim.

Found some lights for this build. Went to local Walmart and found some good deals on bright lights from automotive section and they were on clearance. And all are 12v DC so just a matter of wiring it up.
