That's some of the coolest effects on a chassis I have seen!!!

Well, hard to follow suit on most of the installs in this post, but here are a couple humble shots of my new BMI Copperhead 12 with Jason's new front end.

I'll get the receiver pack sorted out soon but other than that, I'm happy with how it turned out. It was a lot harder than I expected to get all of the electronics a piece of land to lay on while trying to route wires in inconspicuous ways.







Thanks for this post, I used a couple ideas gleaned from here on my car and I keep seeing new things that I want to try. Keep the creativity flowing!!

I didn't quite get the blue as close as I would like, but its good enough.
The car IS balanced left to right with the PPD plates. Currently I'm about 10grams under depending on body/paint used.
BTW there is a personal transponder in there....but its hidden in the bumper.


ha ha..i found it

Either way, I didn't start the trend, I copied it from someone else ;-)

Yeah haha I've done purple a while ago and seen a bunch of others do it before me. I gave up on it though since my cars are black lol don't want colored edges. Rezenclowd was the first in this thread to put pics of it though

That 12th scale is sweet though
