Regarding the slop in the upper shock mount: maybe you could use a small piece of silicone fuel pipe to take out the slop?

Just double check, the slop also occur in the lower area as well. Will try your idea later once I finish painting the body green... Very Happy

Due to the nature of lexan body not being able to stick any other type of paint other than polycarbonate paint. I have to think of a way to make it look less lexanis as I can...  Shocked 
Im thinking of painting the body green but ps paint have limited choices shades of green... Crying or Very sad 
First off I painted the underside with ps silver to give the final coat a slightly tint in the final colour.

After dry I paint the next layer on the underneath ps green

Next I remove the glossy film and start scrubbing the surface before I painted the same ps green on the outside as well.
One thing about ps paint is that it adhere well on lexan but produce a dead rough surface finish...


Due to the nature of ps paint having a rough surface after spraying give me a good rough surface to paint my next colour which is TS-28 olive drab 2.
Here is the final look after the second layer....

Painted and modeled with the chassis

All the parts assembled and my driver trying the vehicle...


Notice anything missing in the picture? I did not make the hole for the body post on the lexan ...  Smile 

A few picture I took with a passengers...

Thanks for the great painting tutorial. TS paint on top of a layer of PS as "primer" is a great idea.  cheers 
I will watch your car closely to see how it lasts.

... but then again, apparently you always carry your cars on the trail, never drive them as they are never dirty at the end of the trail.  Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Hi just to share some ideal of how I mounted the body shell .
From the pre-mark hole that for mounting the body shell I drill a 2.5mm hole.
Than adjust the body mounting pole to the ideal height than drill a 2.5mm hole right of the centre of the mounting pole.
Than just using a 3 mm screw to secure the body shell on the chassis.
Look more scale if not can see 4 mounting pole with lock pin on the body shell than not so scale liao.

Mounting the body. In order not to have to drill those ugly holes on the body shell. I decide to use magnets so its easily removable and will not drop off during the trail.
Snap off the body pin leaving only the last hole.


Fix the magnet on to the body post hole securing it with a screw.


Bought some new shoes for this kit and to make more match to the historic willy jeep.


A set of RC4WD DUKW..



All tires installed on the wheels. Not looking that shabby I must say...


Ok... Finally should be ready to hit the trail

Nice looking tires indeed! Looks like they are as skinny as they should be!

How do you adhere the magnet to the body shell?
