What glue did you use on the body? It looks great.

Default FJ45 Truggy

A little more progress.

I started painting. Primed the body and hood, then put a coat of silver on both. The idea is trail damage might show the silver.... don't know but figured I'd try. The roof of the body needed a little more work after I put the silver on so only the hood got the final color.




Before painting I also glued some magnets under the hood and on the body to hold the hood closed.

Well it's all painted and mounted.


Still have more work to do.
Need to work on the link geometry/steering, I need to find a driver and figure out what I want to do about the bed.

It drives!!

I finally figured out the bed issue.... I got a different tube bed from RC4WD, the Metal tube bed style B for the Mojave body and Axial 1 & 2. That of course, created another problem. The chassis was now too short 🤦‍♂️ So I replaced the TF2 chassis with the TF2 LWB chassis. I had to make the WB longer which I think looks much better.

Poor picture but you get the idea.



Still have to work on the suspension geometry, steering, and a few other things.
