Got a coat of paint on, and started detailing. have some guages to make, but all the "switches" and warning lights are done. lots more detailing to go. In retrospect, Should have gone with a silver chassis and interior, but too late now. Little too much red, might change it out.

Looking awesome Bro. If anything maybe just do the dash panels silver just to brake it up alittle and leave the rest black.

You're starting to make me ancious for the build-off to be over so I can get back on my pro-4.......now lets get you some stars

Thanks MM - yeah, going to add some silver somewhere, maybe some CF. not sure where yet.... Gotta dress it up a bit.

Of course, after I snapped the pics I went to mock it up on the body and it doesn't fit on the chassis at all. was so worried about straddling the center part of the chassis where the motor is that I totally missed the length and have to do some serious mods to make it fit. All part of the learning curve.

lots to do yet, I have to figure out how to mount the body in the back - original design was an epic fail, as well as build a new radio tray somewhere - chassis was never designed for an interior, so have to go back and redo some stuff. Got 2 more weeks!

Sunnuva Bisquit.

Is there anyway to maybe put the scale batts all the way in the rear where they typically would be seen on a 1:1 SC and put your other equipment on the passenger side with a cover. On a 1:1 SC that is where the engine usually sits so you could make it look like an engine cover.

Just a thought. Oh, wait....only 2 weeks, Damn I better get back to work

Interior done! just have to marry the interior, chassis, body and cage all together, finish the radio tray and front bumper and it's off for some action shots. Couple area need a little paint TU, but should all be hidden once assembled.

pretty obvious where I had to hack out the back to get it to fit over the chassis





Mocked up with the body on. Will be cutting out the windows yet.

Painted the cage a gunmetal color...makes it pop. Needs another coat yet, have to wait till this weekend. Should all be mounted tonight though.





Built a swaybar too, just have to get it mounted on.

down to the finishing touches, left myself next weekend to get a vid up and posted.

Made a swaybar...fabbed up a few mounts, bent some music wire, and brazed on some 5mm rod ends. Works great on the bench, allows for some twist but really tightens up the back. See how it works out in the dirt.



got the electronics reinstalled, and made some wheelwells to protect the ESC from the dirt coming off the front tires.



started the final trim on the body, and flipped the headlights so they sort of pass for a Tundra. the wheelwells really fill in the underside of the body. Have to clearance the front wheels a bit yet, and started cutting on the bumper but not yet mounted.



Got some mesh to install and some final odds and ends, it'll be on the road this week - can't wait!!!
