    Nice paint job. Good set of upgrades too. I miss my 50s Chevy bodies- destroyed them before I knew of drywall tape and shoo goo.

    Wink

    I love that body. I've got one sitting in my garage in clear. Going to paint it metallic blue/neon green/black/silver in the spring after I get some more use out of the two stock and the Raptor body I'm running now on my pair of pedes.
    Hope you did the tape/goo thing as they say it's one of the weaker bodies for bashing, but is sure looks cool!

    Looks great good job on your first body paint.
    Don't take it out unless your going to use it.

    Just be sure to check your tire clearance by fully compressing the springs (and fully turned in both directions) to make sure they aren't going to hit the body in a hard turn or jump or powerslide. Also, I'd round off the bottom corners of the wheel wells. That way, if there is a rub, the damage will be a lot less than those sharp points getting caught on the tires.
