Default 2Beer's Blazer Build.

Gearing up and getting ready.
Uncertain which direction I will go for chassis still.
Thinking some Axial chassis rails with bits and bobs used from A Trail Stomper.
Leafs or 4 link still in question also.
Body should be here first of next week.
Hit whats pitched and see what comes around.
Thanks for looking.

Color for sure.. Ive done two like this in the Pro line lexan Body's.
Plus it will look like a 1:1 black chevy I owned for years and loved.

My interior will be the dark Maroon also.
I'll paint engine Chevy Blue like the 4oo small blocks were for the year.

Grabbing gears here and a few changes on the fly...as always.haaaa,
Decided to go the same route as pardonmyn00b, and do a short bed version pickup.
Ordered another shell and a few little's.
Here comes a scale version of a 1:1 pickup i used to own..
Thanks again to all who made such a fantastic Body so that we have some new greatness to work with.
Awesome Job RC4WD.

Lol...if rc4wd keeps this up, no one will wanna build home made bodies any more...I snagged one meself along with a cruiser body...all going on the back burner till the Sandman is done....I lucked out as I still have most of the TF2 parts shelved from the Sandman chassis... Just need to pick up the tf2 rails with cross members and leaf springs..sweet!

So true...
I'll keep Building scratch though. Way to much fun.
Rpp Hobby has chassis in stock last i looked. It's still cheaper to buy The Kit then all the little parts though I feel.

Looking forward to your update my friend and when you get around to building some new builds.
Popcorn fer sure.

Brain storming here...
If your following the builds, a lot of people are wanting different offset wheels to poke them tires out a bit wider..
Thinking I may and try and do some disk brake and drum wideners/adapters..

Well.....
The Kit Body and my other shell and parts have arrived.
I had a chance to pull them out and have a good looksy.
Only thing really bothering me is the mirrors seem a bit to big.
Thinking I will order some a bit more scale.
Most likely will use the lower center style for a more correct looking 77/78 style look on one body.


Now if i had some time to get to chopping...LOL.

Thanks Charlie.
I did get a bed removed...
Decicded to do a long bed version first...
Total scratch up of new bed will happen. Probably carve up bucks and vacuum form sides instead of adding sections...
Should have a pic or two tomorrow....
