Thanks man!

Update: Build a few different types of fog lights, let me know which one ya like the best.

Type 1:

Type 2:

Type 3:

I personal think type 3 looks the best for this project.

And here a little something I have been working on... can't show much since I'm only working on 1 wheel arch.

Update: I made up my mind and went with the type 2 fog lights. I also added more details on the lense and clear coat it.



Then I sand down the case to get rid of those part tree tabs, and drilled a hole for LED. ( I will be re-painting the case silver. )



And here's a little teaser.

Update: Something I have thought of that might add traction when running on snow.

Update: Got a few more GPM parts and a set of new tires.



I'll need to re-do those wheel flares and make the wheel arch bigger, then I can run those tires.

Update: The 2.4GHz PCB just shipped out to XXX today for a 2x3 Stacked FET, also ordered a Stock R motor. Since I'm using the new rims now, I got a wider off-set, +3 wide all around, with that much off-set and those huge bogger tires, I need to sand down more plastic on the wheel well and the wheel flare. The front wheel flares on the body are now 47mm wide, and 45mm for the rear.






And the starting of the interior...


Mock up.


Did some work to the driver seat. Since the passenger seat sit higher on the chassis, because it located right above the PCB, so I need to raise the driver seat up a little bit too.


Sanding down the mold lines.

Arm rest.



The arm rest that comes with the model kit are nice, but they aren't really detailed, so I add styrene to cover up the back side of the arm rest. (left is original and right is detailed.)


And finally come to mounted the driver seat.




That's it for now, more update to come later.
