    I got dibs!

    Check out this sneak peak of a new Proline 66 Ford body! I've been wanting this for a little while. Yay Proline!

    FYI if you don't know, this paint scheme is a replica of Venable Racing's "Hayhauler" that Robby Gordon won the baja 500 in.

    They sell chrome beadlock wheels that come with a black ring. They just painted the rings on this one.

    Oh. Bummer. That means the paint will just chip off.

    The beadlock rings are steel. The paint will not just "chip" off. If you prep and paint them right...

    You better make that dolla!

    I can't wait for this body to be released. I guess I have some time to decide between this paint scheme or maybe a rough riders scheme???

    By the time I got it to look that,I would want it on a shelf.
    Not to mention I doubt I could ever make it look that nice.
    Need to learn a bit more about painting inside out.
    Kick butt truck though.

    I agree, Proline finally pulled off a great paint job to showcase their body! There's a lot of detail on this one. I'm starting to brainstorm my paint scheme now, maybe a "Rough Riders" scheme to match some other bodies I have??
    Something like this:



    Anyways I just ordered two. One for me, one for Bronco Bobby.

    Nice looking rigs!
    My son in law said I should have went red white and blue with the Rattler I just did,but I hit the front with some yellow before he suggested it.
    I chose to run another body yesterday because the truck was running a 13" wheel track in the rear.
    They get tore up enough without the tires slamming into the fender well's.

    Thanks, Billy. I wish I had time to do it today but I don't. It will have to wait till tomorrow. thats okay though, i don't want to rush this one. I'll use a combo of liquid mask and tape to get the stripes. I'm sure I'll go over the sequence 30 times in my head today. Lol.

    I gotta say, Proline nailed the proportions on this one! It looks perfect on the Slash!

    I didn't get it done in time to take some good pics, but it is done.



    This was not an easy body to paint. I love it! It looks so cool.

    That track in the baja bug pics is in Nuevo. I've only been there once but it was so much fun I'll be going back much more! The dirt is really sandy and I used paddles.

    I ended up just using tape. I used 1/4" pactra masking tape to do the stripes and blue scotch masking tape for the bed, toolbars, and around the windows.
