Default RC12LW Parts?

I just won an RC12LW on eBay and all the nylon is dyed PINK, not a big fan, is there anywhere I can look for parts besides eBay? Are there later generation 12L parts that will interchange? Are any 10L parts the same? The rear pod sides and front suspension look a lot like what I have on my 10L, that's why I ask. Not sure why I bought this, not planning to race it, I think I want to toss a cheap brushless in it and see how fast it will go!

1 or 2 caps full of liquid rit dye to a few quarts of water, boil, dip for as long as it takes, retrieve, cool, done.

Use an old pot. Any splashes dye counter tops, floors, and some sinks as well as any cloth. You have been warned!

Given they are pink now you could probably get away with going with red if you want something other than black...then if the red doesn't take right you can still go with black.

PM sent.

Thanks to everyone else for the replies, I think I will try red and if it looks crappy then black.
