Built over a period of 3 years, the chassis, gearbox and axles were a joy and went together quickly and easily. I added the alloy steering arm but other than that left the chassis stock.

The body however took for ever!

2 coats of Mr Surfacer Black Primer, 6 coats of Mica Red (all wet sanded) and then clear.
I used the black bumper set and then stripped, primed and painted the white side bumpers and the chrome roll bar to match.
Metal badges throughout.
Rubber mirrors just in case it does ever get some use.
The Hilux driver with the helmet head give it a slightly more suitable look.
It sits on RCloverr alloy wheels which really set it all off.

There are 2 Futaba ball bearing / water resistant servos, the Tamiya ESC ready to go and a Futaba 4YWD radio with the 6-speed gate on the throttle.

This thing looks just awesome! The combination of the lovely red paint with the mat black rollbar, bumpers and truck bed together with those wheels to balance it out. Spot on. This looks so much better than the high lifts IMO. Great work.

Fantastic! The aluminum wheels definitely add something special.
