My first plan is to cut off the X-Trails shock mounts . The SCX-10 shocks are abit long in sprung form . So I will be using the SCX-10 shock hoops left over from the Blazer build . This will raise the shocks about 1/4" lowering the frame that much .This will be done front and rear .




The wheels are the 26mm 0 offset stock car wheels. After seeing them I was like this is not going to work . So I cut the interbead off and then added it back to the front side . I think they look much better now .








more to come

I like my bashers for sure ,but I love my scalers . lol It is fun to have both type rigs . The ones you somewhat baby and the ones you just try and kill .


I ended up going with the Proline 1980 CHEVY Pick-up long bed #3248-00







It will get my rust paint job on the inside. Maybe some junkyard panels ,maybe a few new panels and I'm think a primered bed . We will see , I have been lazy on getting started on the paint .

Oh me too!!! Its just that right now I use the same truck for both LOL. I bash my scaler, but I dont TRY to kill it. I wont back down from tryin a line Ive never tried before for the sake of paint...its all part of the look for me. I run two bodies tho, one that I really push hard and the other isnt as capable (top heavy) so I try to drive a little smarter with it.

Like the chevy body, my true basher body is the 70s F100 body so Im partial to those boxy pickups. Lookin good so far, keep the updates comin!

Yes it should turn out nice. Every one needs a basher in their garage, plus now you'll have one that your newbie buddy from work or the brother-in-law can use with out worry if they'll destroy it.

I like the rim mod you did, i may have to try that on a cheap set and see what happens.

I did some horse trading today . I got some Proline bumpers and a 3Racing winch on the way .

I also started on the paint(no pics till it is done) . I did do my rust paint job on the inside . Then I layed down some silver on the outside first to look like metal . It has a black hood ,green right front fender , blue and white bed with primer on the tailgate .

Looking good! That is the same way I made the wheels on my Blazer. Its funny the topic of a basher/scaler came up. That is how I treat the trusty Blazer but it is wearing out so I just got a new SCX10 kit and a Trail Ranger body so I can put together a quick and simple scale basher.

Are you going to try any styrene work on the interior or bed?
