Here's an example of a simple paint job brightened up with a Upgrade Factory Logo Kit. The lettering I chose is white outlined in blue. Then I added a Pro Wing Skin. I love it.

If you cant paint and don't have the money for an expensive painter your answer is UpGrade. There are enough different colors and combinations you can make where you most likely wont find someone at your track with the same one.

Here is a picture of my old body:



I figured it would be a pain in the arse to put them on but it really wasn't. And the body wrap or factory stickers never came off or peeled up once they were on.

I'm not a fan of the Pro-Line quick lids as it's a very busy pattern for my tastes. The Upgrade RC Sticker Kits are easy to use and install. Paint your lid one solid color and let it dry. Once your done, apply a lite mist of soapy water with a spray bottle and you can slid the stickers around until your satisfied. Can't get any easier than that....

Here are some samples...

I like real paint. Why spend all the time and money
trying to get your truggie as lite as you can and
then put a pound of friggin stickers on it? These
thick arsed stickers do add alot of weight and
why is there one of there logos for every square
inch of sticker? Whats next, Upgrade TAMPON
DISPENSER WRAPS? If you run your off-road r/c's
then you know bodies don't last. So why waste the
money on shelf queen stickers?

Id definately reccomend checking them out. They have TONS of different designs and colors to choose from, and something is available for nearly every chassis. Its good quality and the application is really simple.
