Customize your M8 transmitter?

I have seen guys with other brands of radios where they replace all the screws with colored aluminum screws or put flashy steering wheels on them. I can't find any places that sell "hop-ups" for my M8 radio. Does anyone sell stuff like that or do I need to just find the screws on my own?

I know there are steering wheels out there for the M8

I don't know anything about the screws though....Most everyone in NorCal keeps their spank stock (including the cars)

Steering wheels are very easy to find, I think Airtronics even makes them. Or you can make your own. Regular r/c size screws work on them also. For changing the color, just take it apart & repaint it, or send it somewhere to have it re-dyed.

I was thinking of changing the color of my 3PK.
I started a thread in the painting section, but I didn't get a lot of feed back.

Hi,

if your interested I will ask the painter just how he did the 3PK's

Thanks
