Aftermath of photobucket crash...My RC10T2 ebay restoration

Post by joey_zrl » Mon Aug 07, 2017 11:37 pm

After photobucket crashed, not really...but that's what I call it... :lol: I saw that all the pics of my T2 restoration were missing from my earlier thread. So I'm putting them back up again in the order of the progress of my build. It all started with a slider chassis with no shocks, and a few missing bits that I added along the way. I have more cool stuff coming this week for this build, so I will add pics as the parts come in...

Last but not last... :lol: I had Andy Jacobson paint me one of his own T2/T3 bodies in this theme, but with shaded blue on the back instead of black. 8) (Note this is a 10T body in the pic, but mine will be of T2 flavor)

Thanks for re posting the photos. It is such a shame that so many photos are now missing from threads. So much has been lost.

You're welcome lavigna. Yes, I agree. Lots of cool builds are gone. I was lucky to have found the time to save all of my photobucket pics to my desktop, then upload them to flickr. Most probably don't have the time to go through all of that. But, hopefully there will be lots of fresh builds in the future.

Me too NomadRacer. I had hoped it would be this weekend, but it shouldn't be much longer. Andy said it just needed to be cut out and trimmed, and will be shipped soon.

I finally have the team shocks installed. They are in very good used condition. I'm really glad to have found almost all of the pieces to make this truck complete. Just lacking the wheels and the o.e. body at the moment. The Andy's body will be on the way soon any day now hopefully. I know he's a busy guy. I will probably get a couple sets of wheels to use with era correct tires. I already have some 2.2 Striker II truck tires. Thanks Eric!
