    Has Anyone tried fitting the Summit front and rear bumpers on the Maxx? I was thinking picking some up.

    Someone did a while back. I can't remember who though.

    A search of the forums yields:

    That looks great MacK! Can you give some details about how to go about the install.

    For the front I cut off the two top screw mounts off the bumper mount. I then added two ball ends between the Summit bumper and the bottom bumper mount. The bumper mount will squeeze inward.

    For the rear I cut and reused the middle part of the rear bumper and drilled new holes to line up the new position for the Summit rear bumper (this will allow you to use the stock wheelie bar). I then added ball ends just like the front to push out the bumper a little bit.

    I ran a lead from the reviver (plunged in to the battery port) for the lights. I have a separate connection just out side the box so I can quick disconnect if need be.

    Here are some pic of the install.

    Nice work mate. Was wondering how robust the light set-up was as it looks great, but am worried about fragility.

    I masked off the black with painter tape. I painted the black first then the green. I was gona use liquid mask but I've always used tape so I decided just to stick with the tape method. I love the lime ice paint. It says it a two part stage but I just spray the green then use silver behind it. I have the 1/16 summit that has the same paint scheme. I know it doesn't belong in here but here's a pic of it's little brother[IMG][/IMG]

    Holds up well no movement. If it should roll it may twist a little bit, but you just move it back in it's place.

    You could do that. What I do is I cut the tape into thin strips start at one point and slowly stretch and curve the tape around the inside fender. Anything that requires any stretching or curving I use thin pieces of tape the over lay with thicker pieces.

    What kind of tape do you use? The painters tape wont stretch and Ive looked for some of that pin stripping type tape that you can stretch, but I couldnt find any thats good and stretchy.

    3m Scotch-Blue tape. It wont really stretch but it bendable if you cut it into thin strips. You slowly cure it to the fender.

    There are lots of good paint masking tapes, Pactra, Great Planes & tamiya all make good masking tape.
