  • Picked up a new body tonight

    Was sick and tired of the rain so I took the boy and ran over to ABC. John gave me a good deal on a Bushwacker body so now I have to figure out how to mount the thing. I was gonna go with side mounts, but as I was tinkering around with it this this evening I think I may just use the stock mounts up front and work something out with some 10-32 all thread in the back. I'll try to get some pics up when I actually have some progress made on this thing. I know it's not the most original body to throw on a semi-scale project, but it actually works out pretty well with the WK axles.

      Here they are, I finished up the rims on Friday night and have been beating it all weekend. I should have snapped some photos before it was all scratched and beat up, but it was too much fun. I was going to go with an orange and white scheme, then John at ABC reminded me that Rckcrwlr already did that with his CR01 so I ended up going with Corsa Gray for the body. I wanted to keep it along the lines of an old land cruiser, plus I haven't done a body in over 15 years so I needed some practice. I did the rims as an afterthought and think they look ok. I really should have done the rock rings on the beadlocks too, but didn't feel like taking all those damn screws out yet again. I know I'm still not 1.9, but at least it looks a little more scale than that dinky Wk body. Ok, here's the pics.

            I seem to recall someone calling it creamsicle at the swap meet back in May.

                            Jake,

                            I think it looks pretty good. Definitely better (more scale looking) than what it was before.
