Here are some photos I found of my truck with the six under carriage rock spotting lamps on. I put the ones on my RC in the same locations (sort of).





Cheers,

One more thing; Here is a photo of the gas tank electronics tank painted with Plastidip and installed. I still have to lengthen all of the wiring so that my electronics can actually go in there.



Thanks for looking!

They are 1:1's.

Back on topic though, if this next bit of progress turns out like the rest of this build has, you might be able to fool us with a recreation of those pics! I'm really looking forward to the rest of this. Don't feel like I'm pressuring you though. Take your time!

Dude...just, wow. This build embodies everything cool about scale RCs. Can't wait to see what you do for an interior.

Yeah, when I first saw the night shots, I thought it was your rc truck also.

TRAUMATIC UPDATE!

After rewiring all the electronics to fit into the gas tank, I had been doing tests on the kitchen island. Everything worked as it should. I, without thinking, hit the off switch on the transmitter causing the truck to fly into reverse doing a 4 foot swandive off the kitchen island onto the marble floor.

The sound of the crash was not unlike an explosion. An explosion of plastic being destroyed.

The results were devastating.

I stood in shock thinking that it really did not happen as I could see bits of light buckets, a window frame and shards of plastic everywhere.

These were the largest pieces that I could gather up:





Looking at the next photo I believe that when it took off in reverse, it immediately went nose down and hit the top of the brush bar and landed on the roof rack lights.





I do not think I can repair these lights, but I will try. I may have to order new light buckets.





Obviously, the roof rack lights are non repairable. There is actually very little left of them. The biggest problem with these is that they were very permanently attached to the roof rack. A LOT of CA was used in the application of these lights.





The front grill took a hit too. I think this will be a pretty easy fix.





This is by far the worst part of it all. I will never be able to get this looking like it did. You can see that my body filler broke away, paint gave way, some major stress cracking and the window gasket ripped off. This will be the biggest challenge. Realigning the window and putting the window divider on the rear door will be about the only easy parts.







The roof rack caused the rain gutter to separate. This does not surprise me. If it were not for the fact that I screwed the gutters on, It would have been worse.





Here is just some small plastic chipping where the body rests in the rock sliders.





Just one last look at the roof rack lights





So, there it is. I am very discouraged and will probably mope about a bit before I start to rebuild. One of the bad parts is that those light buckets were not cheap and came from Stefan at Scale Off Road. I will have that huge expense as well as the time it takes to get from Germany to here.
