Default Step 1 of relooking my Backdraft 8E

Hello,

Here's the first step in relooking my BD8E: new wheels and tires!




I'm still waiting the clear body that I ordered from my LHS to start drawing a design... it will be blue and orange.

But I suck at drawing design so it will be pretty simple

Check at your lhs to see if they have any mask for graphics, make putting a design on the body simple. Make sure to prep the area and light coats and use a good backing coat, white for bright colors black for darker.

Yep, already have the liquid mask.

I'm in the process of painting my 2 Traxxas E-Revo and Mini Revo.

Everybody is getting a new shell ready for this summer
