RC10DS Projects Thread

Post by CruzinCustomz » Mon Apr 25, 2016 1:49 pm

I've got a couple of DS projects going on so I figured I'd start a thread to keep track of the progress. First up is a DS I acquired used that will be getting refresh.

This is how I received it and its current condition:

This is the Mustang DS body I found on ebay. It had been taken out of its original package and had light scratches but was unpainted. I encountered some issues painting this body with over spray and bleed through in a couple of spots but overall it will be good for a light runner:

I'll updates as progress continues.

Thanks fellas!

There isn't any re pops of these bodies that I know of. I have a Parma body that's similar but it's a bit wider.

More detailing coming soon as well as a chassis clean up.

Fitting an older Pro-Line interior. I had to make a cut for the shock tower in order to get the interior to sit low enough. Covered it with a piece a stainless trim.

The body will sit a little lower than this.

This looks awesome. The ds fell right in the timeframe that I wasn't paying attention to rc, so I never new it existed until recently!
