Looks good...that body fits a Big Rock v3? What body is that?

Thx
It's the proline baja, here's the link:

I had to do some redneck engineering to make the body posts work but otherwise it was a perfect fit.

I also have granite tires on it, but I'm sure it would look good with the originals.

It's actually on my old big rock v2, but the v3 is the same size and would fit the same other than the wider stan

No way that is your first time! That’s total BS. Great job, seriously....I bought a clear body 3 months ago that I’m too afraid to get started on
Ha ha thanks. To be fair I did cut open a few plastic jugs and practice on those, and watched quite a few youtube vids to get some tips. You should try the plastic jug test run.

I just picked up the cheap master airbrush from Amazon

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EKUU0WY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_TWQ24MH3BPFV5KZ050RY

I also got the airbrush hose and hooked it straight to my shop compressor hose at 25psi.
The trickiest part was connecting the airbrush hose to the compressor because most airbrush hoses are made with british threads. I can post some pics of my setup and if your interested.

You get it online? My LHS has no body other than the clear truck body...surprisingly actually 🤦🏻🤷‍♂️
I actually got this one at my LHS but you can also buy it online.

I've also learned that if I don't want to pay for shipping my LHS can usually order stuff for me and they don't charge for shipping, they probably get regular shipments and it's all bulked together or something. Either way you save $$ and support your LHS. It's a win win

For sure...I could have mine order stuff as needed as well...I'm tight with the owner and the other guys....hell I'm in there everyday lol...also, what about for 3s typhon? Any aftermarket bodies you're aware of?

Just curious, what clear body did you get and what rig is it going on?

Looks great, I’ve got that same body trimmed waiting for me to order some paint.

I'm not familiar with body options for the kraton, that one's still on my wish list.
