So I think I over complicate the Bullhead body. Going to restart from the spare body I have.

What looks better? Tucked closer to the cab engine bay. Or more on the fenders edge? Roughly displaying as I have no room for RCing but on my bed or window ledge. As basement is still being awaiting to be finished

Couple of goodies. Not sure if I'll use them in this project or build another trx4 in the future.

For any Canadians Have a Awesome and be safe, this Thanksgiving weekend.
RTT project has stalled as work has been very busy. Hopping to be back at it very soon.

IMO I'd run it right to the outside of the fender flare. You may need to cut a little more of the fender flare for the correct width, but at least the cage is protecting the body. Sorry haven't sent my rear cage idea. Haven't been around the computer long enough to do it. Can't wait to see this rig come together

4$ CAD/Canadian Dollar, plastic cutting board from Walmart. that will go into RTT project and others. Small and unexciting update. To make a few parts with any luck after new years work should slow down giving me time to get back into this build.

Budget spray booth. For rc's and other applications. Frame is from a portable wardrobe and a old white shower curtain as main over spray blocker, keeps shed looking less dirty.

What I still need to pickup following items
-New shed (helps to have one the correct size)
-Portable Wardrobe frame
-Screen meshing (to keep the bugs out)
-Wood ( to create some stability and add shelves)
- more epoxy E6000
- lots patience to assemble and reuse.

Picture of the frame. Old chefs jacket to use as over spray blocker for regular clothes not to mess them up. Or old hoodie/bunny hug. works well if you don't have a chef's jacket around.

So it's not related really but maybe help someone out there create a usable solution for spray painting rc's and other applications.

HAPPY new year's guy's!

Playing around with a idea and mixed feelings on how long it will hold up.
And a few others but can't get them on camera due to the picture would just turn out black.
