Rusty 'Cuda - 05-25-2008, 11:34 PM

Hey guys, just painted up this body. Its an HPI cuda body. It looks BA on my Rustler but I'm not sure if I want to keep it yet. I might sell it. I dono. The plastic is really thin near the front and wouldn't take to bashing very well. Anyways, here are some pics for your viewing pleasure.


I was painting but my sister wanted to help. So I had her do the black backer. She did great!

After (pre-stickers with close up of screw up):
The liquid mask got clumped up in that corner and never dried correctly (waited overnight). O well... You cant tell from 5 ft away You can also see how thin the plastic is up front where the dent is.

AFTER (With stickers):

After (on rustler):

Just out of curiosity, I put it on my stampede:

Here's my next body for the rustler. It actually fits nicely. I'm thinkin a police truck theme. Its just an unpainted VXL Rustler body.

And for my stampede I bought a pre 2000 dodge ram from Parma.
