    Traxxas Rustler VXL Custom Body

    So I really needed a new body for my Rustler. I mean the whole back of the body ripped off. So for Christmas I asked for and got the Jconcepts Ford Raptor SVT Body for the Rustler. I love Ford and love the look of this body. It feels pretty thick and I can't wait to run it. I used Pactra Metallic Blue, Indy Silver, and Outlaw Black. I painted Metallic Blue, then backed it with Indy Silver and painted the Gascap Silver. Then I painted the other parts Black and backed the rest of the body with black. here is how it turned out:











    Here is the body with my red LED's on.










    Hope you liked the body! If you want more pictures, an Rustler update thread, how i did the LED's, different angles of the body, or any help just tell me! Don't be afraid to ask me anything.

    That looks really cool! I love the ford raptor tucks, but i thought the jconcepts raptor body looked kinda silly. but you totally changed my perspective of it! thats a really good paint job you did there, the shiny blue looks real good. so either the bulldog body or the raptor body. i just dont know what design to paint on it.
    If nobody comes back from the future to stop you, how bad of a decision can it be?

    Thanks! I look at the parts that I think would be cool to mask. For this I used Parma 10mm and 6mm masking tape.
