Been collecting hop-up parts for this build for quite some time. Finally got everything I wanted to complete the car (via Ebay and some TC Members).
First, my thanks to the TC members: Got the Parma rear anti-rollbar Kit from 'Tamiya King', Aluminum Nerf Bars and You-G Tires from 'Tamiyaluvr' (Raffy), and the famous aluminum KC lights from 'Cul-Tech'. The aluminum nerf bars and anti-rollbar kit were anodized gold originally. I used an anodization remover from Jestco that worked awesome (looks like a salt you mix in water) - way cleaner and easier than the 'Easy Off' method. All parts were polished by hand with Weiman Metal Polish (gives a chrome finish with little effort). The aluminum KC lights require wetsanding to smooth the surface and turned out great using 600 grit sandpaper and some elbow grease.
The remaining hop-ups were all Ebay finds: Chrome Chassis (A-Parts), Chrome Wheels, CRP Front and Rear Bumper (dyed black with RIT), Dirt Burners Aluminum Wing, CRP Front Shock Kit, Parma Rear Shock Kit, Sealed Bearings, Tamiya Universal Shafts, and CRP reinforced Steering Arms.
I never imagined I would add so many hop-ups to the Frog, but I am very happy with the results. It would kill me to scratch or damage some of these hop-ups, so a Shelf Queen it shall be.
