I finally finished the Viper body to go with the Champ. I could not remove all of the translucent red but it really doesn't show up backed with black. The paint was removed after about 3 hrs. using rubbing alcohol and paper towels. I used the decals that came with it to finish it of as close to the box-art as possible. Thanks for looking! - Jim

That is very cool looking and did I miss where you fixed the ball diff?? I also wonder if I missed where the body was from, or rather, WHO the body was from??? Parma or someone else?? Thanks for sharing, looks good in black, but seems like it needs some more '70s stripes on the sides. Just my .02 worth, but that body has to be one of the rarest things about this post. Nice results.

Wow!. This one looks VERY smart indeed.. 'Viper'-Body? Is that a Parma-one? Looks really '80´s' to me.

Cheers.

Thanks guys! @Crash Cramer - I still have the locked diff installed, as for the body, I really am not sure myself. I agree about the stripes, and if I can get my hands on them (cheap), I'm sure they would still fit! [Click here] and [Click here]

And wow, I'm an idiot, the body is a Scorpion I guess. Sorry to mislead!

That is a cool body. I wish someone would reproduce it. It also looks as if it would fit my AYK baja bison. Also would like to have one for my champ.

Cool, so I hope you still have TWO of these bodies, one in black and one in Orange Creme soda stripes. I have some orange/red/yellow Autographics stripe decals that I could part with if you would like to get them???

@ RFAAPFF - Thanks, it does seem like it would fit many models, I would talk to Team Blue Groove about a desired body, it seems like they have reproduced almost everything, including a couple AYK bodies, I need the Buffalo myself! @ Chris - Hmm... I was hoping for the Super Champ stripes but I may take you up on that in the future, let me sit on it. I do still have both bodies!
