    RE: Rckcrwlr's RC4WD Trail Finder 2

    I wanted to show everyone the new Bench Seat for the TF2.
    Here it is out of the bag. Nice detail. There is a hump in it for the shift servo arm but is really not noticeable when installed.
    It mounts where the upper screws are that hold the cab to the body.
    I grabbed a 3mmx16mm screw but could have got away with a 12 or 10mm.
    As you can see, it is sticking out a little too far for me. I will change it later, didn't have any convenient.
    Here it is installed (view from underneath)
    How's this for Ultimate Scale?
    If you want to finish the whole interior, I would put a floor in and a stick shift and you are good to go.

    So I dug around and found some Scale Aisin/Yota Style Hubs and the Scale Rear Hubs
    Also grabbed some Hilux Stripes to make it look stock. I am going with white.

    I'm getting mixed responses on the wheels. Just wanted to do something different.

    RE: Rckcrwlr's RC4WD Trail Finder 2

    I getcha dude. I always remember what my pop told me many moons ago. I was lusting after a 73 dodge dart(??), complete with a slant 6. He said-Son, dont confuse rare or different, with cool or valuable, Sometimes, they're the same, most times tho, they;re not. I've stuckwith that for 3+ decades.

    RE: Rckcrwlr's RC4WD Trail Finder 2

    It's time to start making some changes....nothing like some of my other drivers are doing but mods just the same...
    First one is shortening the sliders.
    As you can see they stick out pretty far from the body. My thoughts on this is I would rather have them further out and cut them down than decide to use another body and then be two short.
    So all I did was measure .30 inches (7.6 mm) off the the mounting posts and cut it off.
    A sharp X-Acto Knife or Razor Blade works great
    And mount them back up. What a difference it makes to the look.

    RE: Rckcrwlr's RC4WD Trail Finder 2

    Next was that I needed to get some type of floor in the cab. I really didn't want to get into constructing a detailed interior so I opted for just a piece of textured styrene.
    Cut to size, painted and attached with the three dash screws and velcro in the back.
    Quick and does the job....

    RE: Rckcrwlr's RC4WD Trail Finder 2

    On a roll today.
    Needed to get the TSS ARB Style Front bumper on...
    Picked up some of these Boat Hardware on eBay...
    I had to drill the hole out to mount the RC4WD Shackles
    It was time to take the dremel to the front valance...
    Due to the fact that I had to cut the mounting tabs on the valance and I hanging a solid Aluminum bumper on, I put a bead of Shoo Goo at the joint to hold it together.
    Here it is done...It's raining out so good pics will need to wait for tomorrow.

    RE: Rckcrwlr's RC4WD Trail Finder 2

    Next step was Getting some flares on this thing.
    I picked up a set of the RC4WD Big Boss Flares.
    What is really slick about these is that come with mounting screws to give the realistic look.
    They are solid rubber molded to fit around the body flares for a snug fit.
    So here is what my TF2 looks like now..
    The hardest part is putting a drill to your body...but just take your time and drill a pilot hole. Then go back and make the hole bigger.
    Now it isn't necessary but I put a little Shoo Goo on them to hold them in place.
    NOTE: Don't tighten the screws and nuts down or you wlll pull the screw head through the rubber flare. Also added a dab of Shoo Goo on the end of the screws so that the nut doesn't back off.

    Very well done build. Nice and clean.

    Reminds me of my f-350 project that's been sitting for too long. Gotta find some time to work on it.
    God bless America
