Slow moving project, but crawlers aren't suppose to be fast.

No, I'll keep the frame in the raw metal. Perhaps I should give it some varnish so it won't oxidize again ?

My thoughts were to keep it similar to boxart colors, but let the colors be metallic.
The base color is a dark metal blue, roof is light metal blue - the light blue and yellow stickers have to be masked and rattle canned in.
I also like the idea of a tan top as gozone suggested.

@SRB Bloke: I never knew that there were knockoffs, the front wheels are flush with the arches, and the rear tires stick out approx. 5mm.
The Chassis and Body both say 'Tamiya RC 1/10 Holiday Buggy'

Maybe I'll do something to the frame if I get tired of looking at it after I get my hands on a rear bumper and a set of stickers.
Chrome is too much Bling for me, definitely black if anything.
Thanks for all the encouraging inputs.

I painted the body because I had to repair a lot of cracks and missing fender corners, so painting the body was the only option if I wanted t look nice. Was a little nervous when someone reported the paint flaking off, but this sits pretty well.
I looked at the yellow/blue decals and they don't really match the paint, so I will try to copy those stripes with paint instead. The decals you see on the model are some of the ones I could salvage from it - If I screw it up I think it will get a Tan paint scheme instead.
Thanks for the inputs guys, I really appreciate it.
