I went into the basement and found an old rc, It literately fell apart in my hand, I grabbed the roll cage and it broke right off, the the tire broke off lol don't know the brand or anything about it but that it was a walmart special and its at least 13 years old, but I knew EXACTLY what had to be done!!
I took off all of the pieces ie, grill, bumper, window insert, pulled the old decals off and and sanded it down. I painted the grill piece and rear bumper chrome, the second grill got a clear coat and the windows black (I decided not to put the window inset back in. I gave the truck a silver metallic base coat and then a blue metallic finish, I then lined the box with real rock guard. the entire truck (except the grill and bumper) got 5 layers of clear coat. Decals are still being worked on and I plan on getting some Scotchgard Paint Protection Film this week end and Im gonna cover what I can of the truck.
I realize you are supposed to pain the inside but it could not be done on the body. That is why I and getting the Protection Film and so many layers of clear coat.
And here is my Merv/slash build thread. You can view the truck before I restored it there
