Here are some preliminary pics of my Wild One.
I finally used the NIB body set I've had for a while and a nice chassis. While I've always loved the Wild One I never really liked the box art red and black... just my opinion. I used Pactra fiery Orange backed with Flourescent white. I'm pleased with the colour scheme.
The roll cage and most of the plastic parts have been sprayed chrome for now, but I think I might re do it matt black. I fitted a Technigold and will run this when I get a much needed receiver!
I'll take off the alloy lights before I run it though, I really like them and don't want to scuff them all up!
Still got to do the obligatory tire lettering and finish the driver. I have one of BeetleLover's hyper detailed Ray heads to paint... always the last step!
I'll take proper photos one complete, these are iphone pics for now.
Cheers!

That's one nice WW! Don't like the boxart sheme,too,but yours is spot on!Are the rims chromesprayed,too? How about blackening the (red)motor pinion cover?Just an idea...

Cheers guys. The wheels are alloy ones which I really like. I forgot to paint the bits that are still red, including the shock collars and ends. It's an unintended noD to the original colour scheme!

Very nice wild one, 10x better than box art in my opinion. The paint job is perfect, congrats
