Hi everybody, I kinda hope this section isn't too deserted would love to have input and suggestions.
So I got a creeper the red one around the time when they first came out, I believe. Ran it mostly stock except for the stage 2 suspension upgrade that I did my self. Well as time and life went on I kinda fell out of the crawler and rc world for some years and just in the last 6 months have gotten balls deep back in only to realize that venom is no longer as well as the creeper. Wanting to get my oldest son into rc crawling or rc in general I thought hey rather then drop the coin to get him his own rc I can just rebuild the creeper for him. Then the scouring began and I found a creeper rolling chassis with a home made tube body for fairly inexpensive. My plan is to rebuild my, (red one) using the green one only for spare parts, as well as use the body, hopefully
So it will have an intengy 55t motor that's it for electrics not sure as far as what else. Don't want to get to out of hand considering there is a chance that he won't even dig the crawling scene. Any way here is some pics with more to come. Let me know what you think
Thanks

Just as soon as I can figure out how to post pics

And kinda a side profile, still have to get the panels painted,have them cut and ready, just need to hit the paint booth. There's still also a bunch of little details here and there that need to be addressed, but my main goal right now is to get it running and functioning by my sons birthday, may 31.
