Very nice work on weathering man!

Depending what offset you end up needing you might be able to use the inner dual wheel from a tamiya semi truck as your base wheel and then add your caps to it. I know they are a 1.7 but the 1.55 tires fit really good and they are a nice narrow wheel that also sets the tires in under fenders nice.

Wow! Great job on the weathering. The color combo looks right at home on this one.

I think their gona be to big though.
We'll get it fiqured out I'm sure.
Even If we haft to purchase stuff to make our own....ahahahaa

Thanks again for the killer info. I'll be browsing around and checking things out now for 1.7 stuff.

Thank 25aniv
I actually had the vision of it in colors from the start.
I'm elated that It came about correct to my eye's and dreams.

I'll be removing more of the wash, as I want just a hint of old and dirty. Once paint cures fully I can sand and blend it all a little moe betta.





...it would probably be 52 but I don't do YouTube or Crackbook or any of those things.
I feel the same about social media..the FB is a no no for me for sure.
ahahahaaa

WOW !! Man you really nailed it! I think you hit it dead on at 10 out of 10! Stance and stock look is perfect and the patina puts it at the right age!

Does it have the stock drive train? Canít wait to see it running around now! Will you be doing an interior and /or engine bay?

You Rock Trini...lol
I'm in love with it now fer sure...ahahaaa
I've never hit a vision of a build so perfect before...
I'm so crazy happy..ahahaaa.

I seriuously was going to use chassis of red RTR yota.
Theirs been lots done to it though to make it run right...
Shorter leafs etc..simple little trick stuff..to many to go into,
So I started this morning flipping axles and ETC...
Then changed my mind on converting it after the work that was put into it.
Needs to stay as it is..
That being said, I need to pick up another RTR TF2..preferably new.

WOULD YOU LOAN ME ONE ? ahahahahaaa
I joke my friend..
Your doings on the wheels is too much already.

So now it's going to patience why I get the funds and pick up another chassis.
In the mean time...theirs tons to do.
Interior...Front bumper..etc Theme Etc..ahhahaaa

I don't know yet on motor.
This is supposed to be a daily driver...

I seriously hate to get to many fragile details added to it.
You havnt seen me drive..ahahaha

OH...MY...GOSH! That is perfect...stance, colors, weathering...oh my!

You nailed it Ron. Once again, you have out done yourself. When you weather up the wheels, it will be perfect.

Can't wait to see how the interior turns out.
