    My summit Revamp.

    Well to be honest I'm not gonna do alot to this truck other than make it look a little more my style. I got the truck in trade and it was in decent shape but ruff around the edges. The main attraction is the new power plant that was in it. Everything else is stock. But anyways the body was less than good lookin but I salvaged it the best I could for now. Still have to black out the windows.

    Funny u should say that! I've been looking and different wheels and tires already. I have a few things I need to take care of first but those are definitely on the list.

    I used tamiya lexan paint as a base primer and then used krylon fusion on top of that. Works great!

    Clean.

    I assumed you layed the paint on top of the shell. Trying to remove the original Traxxas paint is a bear of a lot of work.

    Yes. I have painted hundreds of rc bodies. I do this in my spare time. This is a super quick job as I am getting the apocalypse body from proline to do a zombie response style paint job.
