Just like the title says, I started with an unpainted jeep body set. You can also see the Midnite Pumpkin behind it in a few shots, another project of mine. All the paints used are Tamiya paints on both rigs. I also painted a Lunch Box body but it's put away right now.

Seriously, a Pumpkin with Road Dawg tires and a hot motor...when was the last time you saw a Midnight Pumpkin do 35? :D

It's the transparent blue over silver. It looked good till I sprayed the clearcoat on, then it washed the blue from the edges. Oh well it will be beat around anyways.

The Pumpkin has Duratrax street trax tires on HPI SS wheels. I have a Monster Stock motor so this thing isn't too far from the 35 MPH mark so far. Note, the fronend is dropped slightly, to correct the camber problem. Also makes it more stable at speed.
