    Pretty nice. You should paint the rims a flat black. That would look awesome.

    You just gave me an idea for my Savage. Thinking about doing that flat beige desert look like the M1 tank. Never painted the outside of a lexan body before but im sure its just like doing the inside.

    RE: -Official Traxxas JATO Thread-

    Yeah it was all faded and scuffed up before i painted it so i said why not paint the out side.... the best thing about flat colors on the out side is that when you scuff it you can always spray it and the paint will always match lol

    guietnas- don't try to paint the outside of the body cause i did so on my first body my moons ago. It won't look as good it won't have that glossy look and everytime that body scrapes something you can tell and the paint will start flaking off due to vibration. And don't even think about if it flips over then its done. It will only look good rite atfer u paint it. BUT that does give me some idea's on a camelflodge serpant body saying U.S.ARMY

    Devo208 in a way you are right but if you are a HARDCORE RC diver like some of us we really dont care if the body gets scuffed up during jumps and racing thats why i got a used body (free) and painted it on the OUTSIDE so that when it flips and gets scuffed i can repaint over it and go on about racing also if you prep the body correctly it will NOT FLAKE, now if you want a trophy looking Jato and not drive it then yes you are correct painting the ourside wont look good.

    I see what your saying about the shine but I want to go more for that faded desert storm military look. Duplicolor has flexible automotive paint that I have used beore to paint a plastic bumper on an old Honda I once had. I figure sand the outside of the lexan with very fine sand paper, use primer, and then paint the body. I know it will get scratched but i already have pretty cars. LOL. I need a rugged looking truck. Promise you guys will not be disappointed.

    LOL. I think i will use the stock body i have now on the Savage. When I post pics I will let you know. I just won't post them here since this is a Jato thread. I will probably post in the HPI MT thread.

    Hey did any of you guys read my post on page 127? I'm gonna get a bottom chassis plate for my jato and Iwant to know what's in store as far as labor hours?

    Hey by the way that military look is awesome.

    Quietnas you might still get that matte finish you are looking for if you paint the inside of the shell as you normally wood and you sand the outside with very fine paper. Either way Ithink it will look nice.

    Medevack: you should put a machine gun in the back of that Jato.

    Jatosan what do you mean by the chassis bottom plate? If you mean the main chassis it took me about 3 hrs to switch everything over.
