HHmmmmmm What can I do with this one. Time to ponder and get the gears a turning. I do believe a custom floor plan will be in the works. And love, It needs lots of love. "Ha". Time to get it cleaned up and looking fresh. I won't be afraid to squirt some paint on this one. It may get the rustys, See what transpires. Thanks for looking.

Ha, I considered buying that one
Don't have the time or money for another project. I know you'll make good use of it though

Thanks guys. I soaked most every thing over night. Citrus cleaned this morning. Sanded all the factory cast marks and ouches on front end caponets, and laid down some gloss black. I'm very happy with the way it turned out. Post some pics of it tonight. I will be going threw the rear end tonight also. Thats going to take some time on cleaning up and replacing parts. It has alot of miles on it. Back soon, thanks for looking.

That does look really nice
Any plans for this one yet? I think a real clean 'weekend warrior' type of bug with just a single paint color and no decals would be pretty sweet.

Are you seriously looking over my shoulder and reading my mind. LOL. So far, Yup just leaning towards keeping it simple and less is more. I want to keep it light, but it has to go brushless. As for body, another SS is just sitting in a box waiting for some attention. I have some aluminum I plan on using for the chassis and will just clean up the original and rat hole it for another day. I"m playing with making a new custom shock relocating part and not using the hop up thingmabob. First thing first is to get the whole rear assembly tightened up and looking better. That's about as far Ahead as my brains gone so far. See what transpires of it. Thanks again buddy. Just waiting for my spontaneous inspiration to kick in myself. Ha ..

Just 2 so far..... so far, I'm behind I know, But I'm working on it lol. I'm thinking about moving right next to FLB. I want to be his best friend. You know, the neighbor that peeks threw the hole in the fence. LOL. He would most likely not even let me barrow a mower for fear of me painting flames and adding Headers. All I can say buddy is keep your eyes open. and pray to the Tamiya Gods. Thanks 8ball.
