Well this started life as a Hilux Monster Racer which I got from Stickerbod a while back .I owned a King Cab years ago which had a Gravedigger body on it , it looked great but I always prefered the King Cab body and never got one , so this changed that .I got some white wheels and the body from VagabondStarJXF , the body was in a sorry old state but had 'potential' as I saw it .so much repairing of splits ,cracks and holes in the shell ( see pics ) I managed to salvage it into a runner - for the sheer challenge of it .I got a new roll bar and I cut out the side 'windows' and back panel as I didn't like the look of it filled in . I braced up the main rail of the roll bar where it sits behind the cab to give it strength again, and sprayed the mount 'tabs' white to blend them into the rear bed.I used Tamiyoman's repro decals on it along with some repro Brat headlight stickers courtesty of Stickerbod as just painted white lenses just doesn't look real ,and I'm pleased with the result all round.I bought some chrome King Blackfoot wheels from The Buggy Man to top it all off , the tyres are Kyosho and the damper are Kyosho gold. I hope you like it .
