Then the first coat of 1:1 color






-Paint done, drying at the sun....






-Tires with a little "rim" paint...i like it!

And now, some leds...










Also tinted the mirrors...all mirros!








-Since was warping the tinted windows... why not some Carbon Fiber look? :P



Not missing the LED bug atack...






And not forgetting to make the front stiffer, or lower...


-The front mud protecter, with some screws and hot glue to make nose down!

-Also made a front bumper out of some piece of alloy....






-Now it can drop the body at front without hurting itself!

More to come...someday!

Thanks! Yep very alive... i kind of like this CC01 Isuzu Mu... i don't know why...

Now more of it:
I removed the and reposicionated the support for the 2 links on the rear...to become flat to the belly...


-Photo shows only the removed part... then i "epoxy" it and they sit lower on chassis...not sticking to much out to it the ground like before..








After that, i grab some ears







Then went for the snorkel...










And added more rubber

-That's how i fixed the rear "spare" tire...

And those will help to extend the tires out...








-As being a scale car..it is not going fast...so wideners can be used safe!






-Time to post some videos...

Very cool. You don't see those bodies too often especially in good shape. Nice score!

Changed the "bushings" to metal bearings... what a diference!



-See the white bushing? Goodbye!



-Metal!







-Then got the rear diff out, clean and put the bearings where it belongs!



-Opened the front diff, which was locked with screws... to screw the diff....i put some heavy oil...but later will put plasticine (putty).

After that put a el "cheapo" motor that works...cause the one included had not serviše brush's and have not ball bearings! And i will use a HW 1080 esc in the future. The GOLLRC esc has not a strong BEC for my leds...




Then went trailing!
