Got my min-sum yesterday. All the hobby store had was white, which I wasn't thrilled about--then I remembered how cool the African Land Cruisers and Range Rovers looked with Zebra stripes.
Materials required: Black Sharpie.
1) Remove ExoCage (small hex screws inside body)
On the roof, I just used the sharpie to outline the roof ribs--to break up the design a little bit.
3) Re-install ExoCage
4) All done!
Hope you guys like it.
I think this would look really cool on a yellow one, too!

looks awesome you just need to paint the wheels in white
That looks cool! I am actually bored with my color too, blue.... I have changed the color of bodys before by getting the old color off with a bead blaster. It works quite well and is easy, if you have access to a bead blaster. Im gonna do it, ill post some pics of the process.
that looks awesome bro!

I just got done bead blasting my body today, I will take some before and after pics and try to get them up this week.
I messed up I got excited and forgot to take a before picture!! Its painted now, looks good. Ill post some pics when I get my matching wheels in.
Here is my new paint ***.
Do you use glass bead? it doesn't scratch the plastic?
It was not sand, not sure exactly wat it was, but its going to look foggy when done. It dont matter though because the outside is what makes it shiny.
Thanks I will have to try this. I have glass, aluminum oxide, and shot peen media. I think glass will work the best.
Wow nice work man I like it. Very creative. I like the gray one too.
I like the zebra pattern! reminds me of the old land rover safari vehicles.
I used gunmetal pc spray I got from my lhs. The tires are geolandars, and the rims are hpi scorch 6 spoke, also gunmetal.
