    I still amazes me how many time and quality you put in the builds. And with such a perfect eye for every detail. Great pleasure to follow them.

    He's one of the best around. My Desert Rat build is one of the first I've spent great time and detail on. Yet doesn't touch his finesse to perfection.

    Thanks guys, one of those times I enjoy others talking about me I really appreciate it. Thing is, even if I try.... I cant help it. The smallest of details bug me. lol. And thats even stuff that doesnt get documented. For example, the tiny little plastic tags left from cutting parts of the mold. All those have to get clipped off... lol. its a disease.

    Total what I got so far.




    Monday morning, the HR order will get shipped, and the Toyz.com one will too... Cant wait! Im tryin to hurry and finish the ladies Pede, and put mine back together to start tearing this one down to start cleanin it up, and dyeing it... Il post pics as soon as new parts arrive.

    I also have anouther project that the clock is ticking on me on. My Father has a Suzuki Hayabus 1300GSRX bike that is wicked. Its also gold with Carbon fiber, as he custom painted it. For fathers day, I got a small 1/12 scale die cast model bike, and am in the process of taring it down, repainting it to match and adding 1/12 scale carbon fiber, along with the hardest part, which is getting 1/12 scale decals printed out to match his.... And fathers day is right around the corner. Oh man!

    LooT I'm the same way with the leftover mold on the parts, that comes from my model building days. Trim and sand.

    I love that stack of parts.

    BTW check out my Desert Rat build in the AM. I'll be posting the body paint.

    Nice brotha! LOVE your Slash build. Man oh man...

    But... Update as of today. Toyz.com order, and HR order arrived TODAY! boo yaa!!

    Got the Tbone under chassis, and Rear bumper
    HR one way diff as recommended by Pave and All Aluminum
    GPM Links
    HR Kunckles
    and... Reason Why I got these knuckles, The disc and brake set which I just had to have..... If it was a merv, not so much. But as a little street racer. Oh ya!










    All.. Notice I got the older style rear bumper without the holes Totally the Toyz.com has the older style for sure.

    Went to LHS to pick up black and Tan springs, and NO go...Also on the wheels and tires I ordered. Not pimpn. Pretty much last thing Im needing to start to dye. Also, waiting for my FastEddyBearings, for Steering and bellcranks. Love that they are black rubber sealed bearings for a great deal. Very happy with those guys...

    But I really should have a build thread with a better title. When I start, BUILDING...il throw one up. lol.
