Default changing from 1985 blue blazer to 1973 proline racing dark green and white bronco .

i thought for the next few season i might go from a thinner rig.

I thought about a dark green with black flares version i liked the look of.

And a new set scale tires from proline

Great looking trucks, I’ve read good things about that body hole marking tool too!

I am trying to make my own version of the SSD Aluminum Front Bumper Black For Traxxas TRX-4 Axial SCX10 II #SSD0020

https://www.amainhobbies.com/ssd-rc-...03/p698466?r=0

like on the older style of Blue chevy C10 with this SSD bumpers front and rear.

bilinvic's TRX4

First attempt for brackets made for rear bumper. Second set of holes made the bracket move down the chassis 8mm and lowered the bracket 4mm

Got it mounted and trimmed but I have curved wrong side of the bumper and I can not flip the bumper as I have not mounted the in the right spot







Yep not sure what to yet try and flip it and see were the holes line up
