TD looks to be releasing some new bling parts in olive, black, red and gold.
Battery nuts, spacers, wing buttons, front bulkhead buttons and wheel hexes

How did you do the battery brace, where you filled in the lettering?

What alternative o-rings can I use in the shocks since the TD ones are out of stock?

I would recommend these. Or if you want the same style as the stock ones then these will do.

The fancy kyosho X-rings will work but the o.d. is a loose fit to the shock body. I had one rear shock that sucked air really bad past the seals but after a heavy greasing of the seal package everything seems to seal up well. I used some Race Tech (motorcycle) seal grease with these seals since its thicker than green slime or losi grease and provided a better seal.

Carefully filled it in with paint, let dry and wipe away the extra with paint remover.

I did them also from the get go and still had issues, it really comes down to the driver, but once they pop off once they pretty much keep coming off. Atleast thats how it worked out with the 2 sets I had used before I switched them all out for a different brand.
