Had some cut to fit vinyl circles to use as paint masks to get the bead lock part of the wheel like I imagined. Also had some chrome vinyl circles cut to fit that I'll give a whirl.

Little more tinkering with the chrome vinyl I had cut. Also received my ESC and 6.5 brushless... :twisted:

Those wheels look really good. Adhesive Monokote could be used for all kinds of stuff like that.

Such a great DO build. It all seems to be coming together pretty smooth. Now you also need to replicate his crazy long trailer that he used to haul the real car around with.

I like the way the rear of the chassis is cut. the new anno looks cool - pretty close to the green chassis on the real car.

Love the green ano, and the milling just make it POP! 8) Like how you took the one photo in natural bright sun light, makes it even better. Good taste!
