I'm plannin another Saleen Stang body that will be just fer show as it sits in the house when not being ran. And the same with the wheels. Not sure which ones I'll get but I'll figure that out once I get a new paint scheme goin on fer the body

They'll be one of these 2 styles but not sure on the color yet.

Both sets of wheels are cool, I'm not sure which I like better. I think I'm leaning slightly towards the 2nd set!



That body has definately seen better days!

Nothing as of yet. Still looks the same. But I do have some set plans now. I'll probably start ordering everything by the end of next week once I have all my Christmas and birthday $$$. (bday is 29th) once I have all the parts in hand it will only be a matter of time, lots of time http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v260/offroadford4x4/emoticons/Lol/lol2.gif The paint scheme I have planned will be pretty involed to do as I see it in my head. I'd say there is a very good chance I'll screw it up http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v260/offroadford4x4/emoticons/Lol/lol2.gif I'd estamate mid January for make over to be complete.

The body and most the paint have been shipped.

I ordered the one other paint after I placed the first order cause I forgot I needed it. So that should be shipped out soon after I hope. With the second order I picked up a abattery discarger too since I haven't been runnin down the batteries cause I've only been using it to drift.

Yes. I am actualy thinking of painting 2 one color and 2 another color.

I know it sounds kinda fugly but so does the rest of the car. The paint colors will be orange, green and purple :puke:

:rolling: but as I see it in my head, it looks kool. Just hope that when I paint it, I can do as good of a job as I see it.

:banana: Got the body and 3/4 of the paints yesterday.

I'ma start workin on the paint masks prolly tonite. Those wwill prolly take a few evenings themselves alone.

Looks like my original gameplan of havin it finished by mid January was bit off. It'll be a few weeks yet <_<

PLus I gotta find some new tires for the new wheels. in the pic above I managed to peel 2 of the tires off the gray wheels just to see how they looked and fit. Wheels are 24mm and tires are 26mm. I like that look a lil better so I'll prolly get 26's for the new wheels.
