Default rc upgrade

hi just thought i would tell everyone about my good experience with the people at upgrade.i contacted them asking about a decal kit for the jammin x2cr like chad bradleys they said they didnt do one or any plans for one,and he would have a word with chad.i thought that would be it and i wouldnt hear anymore but to my amazement chad bradley took of his shell and signed it for me !its now winging its way to sunny england i feel very lucky it just goes to show how good some people are in this great hobbie.
cheers upgrade
cheers chad bradley
ps it wont end up on ebay thats for sure.

Same here .... ordered an upgrade gear bag and got a personal phone call letting me know they had gotten my order and asked me which font style I wanted on my bag.... I had forgotten to specify.... Its great customer service to call someone.

I just ordered my first body wrap the other day, I've always had my shells painted for me. But the painter I prefer can't get to it for 6 weeks so I thought I would give rc upgrade a try. I ordered a basic one from A-main to see if I like them, if I do, I will then order a custom one from them directly.

btw, How difficult are these to put on?

thanks guys.

woodchuck first make sure you peel off the over spray film from your new body

then get a hair dryer to warm the skins to make them more flexible and just take your time putting them one, its not hard once you get them and see how they are made to fit the body
