Hi guys,
Finally got a replacement camera and will start to add models to my showroom.

This Rough Rider started as all stock and original from TC member onetenth ( Gary) a great guy...that was about 4 years ago now! he had painted and decaled the body which is really all that remains of the car. he did a good job I think.
I took it apart, cleaned it all, polished what was polishable and repainted the driver.
Over time I got hold of ( in no particular order) Shodog's one piece rear cage, J-mans front bumper and roof ( love the roof and really dont see many of them about!). I picked up some of Rad's gear covers and recetly got the competition chassis. The wheels are Traxxas Bullet which I painted and I really love the size of them. I got some of Mike00top's superb exhausts ( I see he has been putting these back on the bay recently...you should buy some they are a work of art!)But for all the nice its and bobs I picked up over time, for me the best part of this car is Cultechs working lights... love them! I was lucky enough to pick up quite a few and will incorporate them into some future projects too. You can see my crude wiring attempt!
Hope you like it ... cheers,
Paul

Cheers all... @mtbkym01 I'm not sure which rear tires they are. They may well be stock that came with the wheels. @SRB Bloke...don't get your hopes up too much Steve, I'm more of a tinkerer than a finisher so there's an eternal stream of ongoing projects that makes up most of my collection!! I'm inspired by seeing everyone elses great work to get cracking though!

Excellent work Paul! The time and effort have certainly paid off. Glad to see you installed bulbs.

Cheers Mike, love the lights. The LED's I bought were tricky as the resistor was located too near the bulb for easy fitting. I was restricted by my lack of wiring knowledge!
