Sliders look as good as the front bumper. No wonder you sell your finished RCs to readily. Not many have the skills, tools, time and the werewithal to do what you seem to do like putting peanut butter and jam on a slice of homemade bread. :laughing:

With work and other peoples rigs I haven't had a lot of time to work on my own but I did send the bed out yesterday to get bobbed, doved and some new taillights installed. Also started designing my read 4 link. Going to run a set of 80mm king coil overs.

Plastiweld it's a type of styrene glue that actually melts the plastic back together.

actually prices are pretty much set, even if I'm backed up ten rigs I'm not going I raise my price. I enjoy building and that's it. The cost is pretty much materials and a little of my time.

Yeah Craig, Kevin did the body work. Outstanding job I'd reccomend him to anyone tha wants some styrene works done and cost is definitely fair.

Todd I built you a jeep, lol. Plus thats all on homeboy if he wants one built just offering up my abilities.

This R/C stuff is actually pretty fun to work on, kevin was doing a crew cab project for another guy and was pretty sweet, that shit takes some patience for sure. That truck is gonna turn out pretty sweet man. What is next on the list? lol

As for personal rigs this is it for now. I might build a class 1 tj down the road, these high end crawlers cost a lot of money and I'm too damn picky about little things to go cheap. So maybe next year when my sons old enough to understand the concept I'll build him something.
