Talking Check out the stang

Just finished doing the body. I painted it yellow first, but didn't like it. So, I took of the paint with fuel and a rag. It took a while, but I like it. It's an Hpi Rs4 Rtr3 by the way. No hop-ups, yet. I gotta get a 2-speed tranny, then I'll be set.

You took the paint off with a rag and fuel!??!?!?!?! You have some serious patience dude. I tried this one time and gave up, trashed the body and bought a new one

Looks good man.

up close and personal, you can still see a little yellow paint, but overall I'm very pleased. You should have seen my first body. It was a viper. I painted it white and forgot to put the window masks on so the windows were white too.

Nice job! I work at Saleen and you did a pretty good job. We usually put the big Saleen sticker on the sides of the Mustangs and just a little Saleen on the back of the S7. Nice color! Looks great. I have been trying to get them to make more small stickers so that people can put them on their RC cars as well as their big ones. I have shown then a lot of cars that people have done up to try to encourage it, but no luck yet. Will keep trying though.

looks nice - you need to trim your body posts, though.

sorry, haven't been on in awhile. It took me a couple of hours. It took like an hour one day, 15 minutes the next, a half hour the next...I did it for like 4 days off and on. All together probably like two and a half hours. It really sucked.
