Default Custom tamiya chevy clod hard body scaler, NOW FORSALE!?!

Hey guys just finished painting up my scale truck I've been working on for almost a year, fully custom handbuilt interior with working stereo(4 altec Lansing speakers) way too many details to list so read through the link on my forum and tell me what you think.

I want to maybe sell this body and interior if the price is right. Let me know your honest offers. I've put a lot of time into this so no lowblows, will ship anywhere. The only thing left to do on this body is mount the Windows in (you get new clear Windows and spares to do half or full side Windows etc etc) , everything else is very highly detailed almost to perfection.

Yeah that was a sharp trick and yeah Clear Lexan is what I use for modeling project that require home made windows.......

Great job and may I ask what you got for the body? Also where did you get those speakers at?

I bought the shell, reproduction grill and tailgate and a few other things off a fellow racer a few hours away from me. The body is a 1987 cold buster from tamiya. For the speakers I got two altec lansing ipod speaker docks and ripped them apart and molded styrene around them until the were in the shape of a speaker box and then I had to extend the speaker wires and mounted the amplifiers from the ipod docks under the box of the truck and connected them to my ipod with a Y cable that was hidden inside the toolbox for easy access, had to also mount the two battery boxes that held 8 AAA batteries. It was really loud and sounded damn good and crisp and on the right song it rattled the Windows and mirrors I was the first person to do this on a custom interior and I wish more people tried it because I got the best compliments from any person that ever heard it.
