    Question body / paint scheme ... HELP!!...

    Hi Everyone,

    So I had a MERV a while back but preferred my Stampede so eventually parted with the MERV. Whilst i'm not too keen on the chassis, i do love the size of the 1/16 cars, and so I'm going to buy a brand new Rally 1/16 on offer here in the UK this week. I'm just gonna use it for a bit of indoor fun and the odd car park etc for some slippy sliddy drivey fun time.

    But, i cannot decide on a body and paint scheme, i've been through loads of forums and pulled off my favourite pictures but i just cannot decide. So, what would you recommend?

    So far i'm liking the Camaro (black and pactra lime ice?) the Mustang (black or gunmetal grey?) and the Protoform (bright / funky colours?). But cannot decide.

    Maybe you could help me out with your favourite bodies, paint schemes, or just general advice, and i hope to be back here soon showing the new creation. Thanks!

    Ideally like to have a rally type shell, a cruising type shell, and a chavvy / street racer type shell with neons etc for a laugh...

    My KB Rally has two stock bodies(one mint and one not so much,lol)...and a maroon body from a brushed Fiesta(my current basher body).
    I'm about to pick up a Toyota Nascar Truck body for it but haven't decided on a paint scheme.

    My 2wd converted brushed Rally has a Proline Rat Rod body on it.

    For my daughters brushed Fiesta that she used to have(that's where my KB basher body came from)...we painted a Boss 302 body.

    Is the Nascar body meant for this model, or are you gonna mod it? Link?

    All you have to do is adjust the body posts.

    Yeah cool I may well get one of them. Hard to pick paint for cuz i guess you either go NASCAR or cool street truck vibe. Looking forward to seeing the end product!!
