Finally got started on the kit today. I was hoping not to have too much custom work to get this thing low but it looks like its gonna need help.
Its not a bad stance but the look I am going for is much lower. Sooooo I put together the chasis and cross members to see what needed to be adjusted.
The seems to be the only issue. I dont really see a place to just cut and remove so drop it down. If anyone has some pointers, or previsouly built kits I can use as build plan that would be cool. This will be my first attempt at anything other than simply chopping blocks to lower the car.
The rear seems simple. Chop the the rear braces like an 1/8 and I think it will totally change the look of the truck. No crazy tricks needed, rear diff should still clear.
Removed this line fromt eh hood I did not like.
Other than the ride height situation, the other issue is the quality of the kit. I guess I am too used to tamiya kits which too me are some of the very best. Lots of thin gaps in the front clip and most annoying of all... The detail of the interior roof liner is ruined by these injection mold circles. Obviously removing them is a no brainer, but I do not think I can do so without messing up the molded in detail.
More pics tomorrow. Like I said.. slow process.
