Got some more work done after supporting 2 friends on STP yesterday. They did the one day in 16hrs including stops. We crossed the finish line at 11:15 last night and started at 5:45am

Got the headlights done when I got home and added some LED's just for grins. Also did a mini hot-to on the lights
Remove the original molded headlight.

Add some styrene for a mounting base and support

I used the fog bucket from a hilux the lense is for color only

Add some styrene to the light for better and more secure mounting.

I opened te grille while I was here anyway

The bucket mounts from behind and you glue in with TENAX7 more like weld in

Then added some LED's


Then for fun I mocked it all up for a few poseur shots on the Rock

Still need to put the Tan stripe on it. Trying to find the right font is a bit of an issue. It still needs all of the electronics put in both winch and steering servos installed. You know all the little shit that takes forever to finish.

Also look for a Toyota Truggy for the next build. It might have a bed but prolly going all tube. Always wanted a Hilux bodied rig and it is just starting to perk more and more. I am really happy how this thing is coming along though.

For those who did not get to see this at Des Moines yesterday. I pre-ran the Novice course with it along with 4-5 others and it drove the course really well. Looking forward to the scale meet in 2 weeks.

Like I said yesterday, this is probably my favorite scale truck, simply becuase it's unique, and well built.

Jer - if you wanna keep up, you're gonna have to do better than a Toyota body..... :lol:
