looks pretty darned good. instead of red, you could do that gunmetal grey of the lower part of the body on the extra stuff.

Man I love that build everytime I look at it I spot someting new What do you think about painting the rollcage Yellow? I think you will hardly see it if you paint it gunmetal too.

Hey KC, I am a Hummer fan totally, and anyone that read the history behind the HX would have to agree your build is exactly what the young designers would hoping to get from the HX. There's not an adjective that defines what I think of your build. Great work!

One more thing, If you decide to change the tires, which isn't needed. Go with the RC4WD Prowlers, they look like the Baja Claws they use on the HUMMER RACING trucks.

Thought the rig was finished... Then you go paint that body... Again, great work, great details and each time you made the right choice... which pays off in the end: great rig
