    New Slash Baja Body

    My daughter has a used Slash 4x4 that her husband bought for her. Well the body that is/was on it was a little trashed....

    So I got her a Bug body and painted it just like the VW Bug she had when she was in high school....Only her's didn't have the rear wing.

    I kept it basic with only a few window stickers.

    And here's a few pics....







    I also installed head and tail led lights on the body with two interior blue led lights....

    Looks sweet at night...

    Props man. I would have never took the time to detail the engine like that. That looks awesome. Don't let her beat this one up to fast! But then again that's what there for.

    Looking great! Very nice colors!

    I love the Baja Bug body. I have one on my Slash, but I will also put one on my Summit.

    My hands are not as steady these days so it does make it a little more difficult to do detail work... But the effort and want to do it is still there. LOL

    I had to cut out part of the engine compartment, about 1/4 inch on each side to clear the rear bumper.. but 90% of the engine detail work is still there...

    She hasn't run the new body yet, but I think the kids will come back up to our house for New Years to break in the new body.

    That is a freakin' sweet body! I like the two-tone blue. Interesting scheme. Did that wing come with the shell?

    Yep, the wing comes with the shell. It's on the front of the shell and it's a bit hard to notice. So you have to be careful when cutting it out, or you might cut the wing in two or more pieces.

    As stated by Wetterhoun the wing came with the body, it also has two small fins that can be attached to the sides of the wing where the small fins are.... I did not use them as I did not like the look nor think they would last..LOL

    The bodies are 25% off at my local hobby shop today, so I'm going to get another as this one I did over a year ago is pretty well beat up.

    This was done with rattle cans.
