    Very Nice !! The beadlocks look great with the matching color red. Looks clean, I would leave it just the way it is. Maybe do some black rubber around the windows for some detail, It will even better in the sand dunes.

    Hey 70challenger, Did you paint your windows white or did you forget to take off the window template stickers? just wondering.
    Nice paintjob did you use an airbrush or the spray cans on it, I did mine with
    an airbrush, here is a pic of mine.

    Great looking Baja Bugs everyone. I've been running a couple Rustlers for a while, but when I saw the Baja Bug body, I had to get a Slash and put my own Baja Bug on the road! So, here's mine:

    New Baja Bug images coming soon...

    I just got the new paint and decals to finish my second Baja Bug this coming weekend, so I will post new images soon!

    I also just received Pro-Line Bowtie SC tires and Epic bead-locs too. I've been hearing great stuff about these tires and looking forward to getting them on my Slash after the new paint job.

    I just have to remember to take pictures of the finished project before a run it down the street.

    Shelf Queens

    I take photos of my cars before I run them to post images in their best condition. In both cases of the baja bugs I posted here... as soon as the photos were taken, I drove them around and flipped them both. I would bet that most photos posted are before taking them out and giving them a good bashing.

    I like the white/blue body, crazee horse... I really like the decision to paint over the rear windows.

    Don't feel bad, I didn't get comments on the photos I posted either. Not for my black/orange one or the newest red/black one with the Pro-Line wheels to match.

    the wing was in front of the shell, as for bolts you have to supply your own. I think!

    Crazee Horse, You say that alot of bugs on here are shelf queens because they have very nice paintjobs, well yours is the same way-very nice paint but will it just sit on the shelf? I dont think so. We all just take pics of them while there still new looking. Take mine for instance , a shelfqueen or a thrash&basher you decide here are 2 different perspectives for you to judge by.....Legend

    The bolts and nuts come with the wing... but they aren't very good. I used alternative bolts and nuts to attach the wing on mine. The bolt strips out and the nuts are plastic and strip out if you don't get them on straight.

    As for the wing, yeah, you can't NOT get that because it and the shell are together.

    Yes you can take off the rear bumper and keep just the wheelie bar on.

    I just wanted to say that this thread has inspired me! My Slash was not getting very much run time anymore but that will soon change. I have two Slashes that I am now (thanks to this thread) doing bug bodies on. One will be raced and the other will be more of a sand rail look like others have done. I did get one body today, I have it trimmed and it is ready for paint. I also picked up a set of wheels that will work with the theme along with some RPM goodies. I am still deciding on the second Slashes paint scheme but I have a general idea. You all have some very cool bugs and I hope to be able to add to the pics very soon!

    14,000 hits on this thread, and its not stickied? C'mon guys. There is not another thread on any forum that I have ever seen that gets this much attention. If its not stickied, some one is dropping the ball. Take it to the top! I love this thread. Rate this thread and we may see it at the top. I just did.

    Trying to mount on of these on the Slash now. I see few here that used the spoiler (???) And I am not sure if any one who used the spoiler used the small plastic pieces that came under the front wheel wells that attach to the side of the spoiler.

    My question is how to attach those small plastic pieces to the spoiler. You can see where they go in the pic of the rear here: http://www.prolineracing.com/p-690-v...-slash174.aspx

    Thanks for any help.

    Double sided black servo tape. Your local hobby shop should have some.

    You can use some double sided foam tape but it will not hold up as well as the black servo tape.

    Is there any place that sells these bodies already painted / cut? I've got negative skills in both areas, though I think the body looks awesome, there's no chance of me being able to make it look nice if I have to paint / cut it myself.
