    looking for an f150 body

    looking for an f150 body. a 97-03 extended cab. Thought I had seen some, but can't find them now. I want a hobby grade body, not a new bright, hard plastic body. I want to paint it white.

    Already looked into parma and the people that make the bolink bodies now (rj speed maybe?)

    Not sure if they exist but if you found the new bright plastic or another in the scale and year your looking for you could always use it as a mold and vacuum chamber your own bodies to the thickness you desire.

    I buy a 4x8 sheet of poly 0.60 (to thick cracks easy in the cold try 0.40 and use lexan) for 108.00 and I get 8 Emaxx bodies and 8 Stampede bodies, a couple of you tube vids an hr or so in the shop and the vacuum chamber is done and maybe 20.00 in material.

    Just a thought hope this helps.

    Oh my gosh that is awesome. I did not know you could do that. I am going to look into this. Although it seems no matter the vehicle I always end up picking a raptor f150 body.

    Squeegie, if you had to guess, how many different RC car manufacturers are out there.
