Even before we got our SCX10 II we knew, we’re gonna get rid of it’s stock body immidiately πŸ˜‰

Don’t get us wrong – it is pretty epic! But waaaaaay to big for what we wanted this rig to be. So we said our goodbyes and switched to something totally different πŸ˜‰

Our choice was front part of Tamiya Toyota Hilux hard body that would be a base for a truggy. #ten2truggy to be precise πŸ˜‰

As you can see even that was not enough πŸ˜‰ and we decided to.. hm.. work a bit on it πŸ˜‰ Actually Sandra did – she spent on it a good few hours cutting and sanding the edges to make it perfect. And it turned out perfect πŸ™‚

Also used back panel from my Trail Finder 2, that was laying around doing nothing really πŸ˜‰

We also did something to the grill, but we’ll write more about it next time πŸ˜‰
