Josh does some SIC work! Here is the Truggy lid he painted for me earlier this season. Now keep in mind...this is my first season racing so I'm on my lid as much as I am on all 4 wheels. Body still looks great. Some minor cracking at the front wheel wells from "lawn darting" the Truggy a few too many times....but a little Shoe Goo here and there...and it's in great shape still! Turn-A-Round time was like 3 days once I told him to go with it.





This last picture is from a near full season of racing (and crashing)

Paint fo sho! Wraps are fine for practice or small club nights, but they will never compare to the detail, originality and style of a painted body.
