I made some finishing touches to the truck. I added the following.

- New 3 piece skinny front wheels and new rears. Dyed black
- New RPM rear bulkhead
- New RPM inner rear arm mounts
- New RPM rear over sized bearing hubs
- New black anodized aluminum chassis screws to replace the yellow/green stock pieces

After I took these photos, I altered the shocks so the Andy's body sits lower on the chassis, and looks correct. I will have to take a few more photos to show it. This thing is now pretty much done. I don't think there is anything more I would want to do to it. In person, it is so cool looking. I wish I could capture that better in the photos.

they are probably houge. the factory worlds style bellcranks would be the same roughly speaking. notice they are in the forward position so they are the buggy ones.
