I read from another TC member, what a nightmare to paint and i thought that cannot be so bad, it are only four colors.

And now after only 22,75 hours hard work it is finally, finally restored.

I promise also even if their me one to give want I build never again a NISSAN KING CAP!

Vehicle divide, clean and parts sort: 1.75 hours, rebuilt the chassis again: 4 hours, body mask with tape, paint, cut out and paste: 12 hours, tire writing paint: 5 hours

I hope you can understand me!?!




well worth the effort though, look great!

But it is a STUNNING 24 hours worth of work. I love it and it could only look cooler and cleaner if you had somehow found all the chrome CCP parts made for the truck way back when. I hope you get your truck sold, but not regret it.



I said it before but I´ll say it again : The King Cab must be one of Tamiyas nicest looking models !! And you did a GREAT job with yours !!



Looks amazing! I love the Tire writing, How did you do these?



Tire writing is easy: color flat with, the finest brush, a quiet hand and 5 houres time



i just spent hours doing the tyres on my hilux. i nearly went blind doing it, it was my Cistine Chapel! Nice looking KC
