  • Project YJ started!!!

    Ok so I picked this up off of Stick king, And I want to do it up right...
    Thinking about removing the roof, and doors, However I also want to do away with the fender flares and add some styrene to the lower body (under the doors) and am not sure about how to attach it..
    My master plan is to do the top as a removeable hardtop (just like a 1.1) and the doors as removable as well... wish these damn bodies werent so exspensive...also CJ was the jeep you built a 1/10th scale or smaller?
    I am thinking about using that interior, as well as robbing the rear lights off of one for my yj....
    Down side to the project is opening the diffs in the rear and not having a manual for it.... anyone have a line on one?

            those hosers over on tamiyaclub would be in TEARS seeing you actually running that body on the rocks!!!

            have fun with it. i'm not sure, but i think diggler's wife over on RCC was making some really nice custom soft tops for a while. i'd say check that out for your top....

                          did you look all the way in the back on the back wall above the drinks? they had at least 200 stacked up there but then again it was sometime in nov or dec.
