Got my hands on a very good deal with a TC member (Thanks Alexkidd..)) who had collected the parts to built an Egress 2013. This was my chance to built and run one! And a great addition to my Egress Mk1 and Egress 2013 NIB. So I decided to fit it with the Avante 2001 chassis and make it a Avante Black Special edition. I had some trouble fitting some decals so had to improvise a bit and used some custom ones. Still waiting for Egress 2013 front uprights and the blue ball adjusters which I bought on eBay recently. Then it will be a perfect Egress 2013 runner fitted with the proper gear of course, Super Stock BZ and TEU302 BK ESC.

That looks great. I was planning on doing the exact same thing with one of my 2001 bodysets except I was going to apply the large silver decal too. After seeing this example without it though I have to say it looks better. Great work!

Thanks Wandy. I've tried the large silver decal but it doesn't fit. I couldn't get the wrinkles out. I think the Avante 2001 body is just too different from the original one. Same problem with the decal that's supposed to go behind the cockpit and the one on the nose. The nose has to be trimmed otherwise it doesn't fit between the shocks.

Yeah, I thought that might be the case so I had also prepared myself for having to paint the silver stripes manually with some PS-12 paint. Makes it a much bigger job of course...
