I'm really glad to show you my finally finished King Blackfoot. This project took forever!
It all started with a used KBF I got cheap of the bay. As the Box art really doesn't do it for me on this one, I wanted to go custom. But first the body needed some work. It had holes drilled everywhere and some deep scratches. So I bought a new Blackfoot Extreme body, cut out the bonnet (which is different on the Extreme) and filled in the original KBF one.
I had some TS-75 Champagne Gold and TS-42 Light Gun Metal around for my Hilift Hilux which I thought would look nice here. Another color I always wanted to try was the newish TS-82 Rubber Black, which I used for the rear bed and front bumper. It really gives that rubber look! Another thing I had left and wanted to use somewhere was the 'Free Wheelin' logo from the Ford Ranger XLT. I didn't like it on my Ranger, but think it blends in nicely here. It all went on great and was sealed with several coats of TS-13 clear. As always I rushed it and the base colours started running! :-( It took me two days to repair the damage including repainting the Gun Metal and polishing the body. Still not perfect.
As the stock rollbar looks rather bland in plastic, I bought a chromed one. It was then I knew I needed more chrome!
I remembered having a chromed Re-Re Brat chassis tucked away somewhere which came to use as well as some chromed KBF wheels. As a reminiscence to the original Blackfoot as well as the Bruiser it got some Blackfoot shoes. The final touch were cheapish chrome alloy shocks with stock springs.
Tobbe, Champagne SIG opened! :-)
