Default "The Paddy Wagon" Axial SMT10 Hybrid

I just finished the paint work on this new body. I haven't had a dry day to run the truck yet or to get some outdoor natural light photos so please forgive the office bench shots.

The truck started out with a Grave Digger cage and skid from Ebay and a set of Wheely King axles from years ago. I had a set of Clod tires and adapters in the bin that weren't being used so those went on early in the build. I made the links with carbon shafts and RPM rod ends and am currently using a set of no-name Ebay 130mm shocks. I made a pair of 4-link brackets for the axles and also made the servo mounts. The transmission is from a Wraith, the driveshafts are Traxxas E-maxx units, and the motor is a 35t Integy that I used when the truck was a crawler. I just installed 2 BEC's to power the servos and a new AE2 ESC. The body is hinged at the front to eliminate two of the body posts and is painted in a purple and black marble with faded silver to lime graphics.

Future plans include a hotter power system, AR60 axles (if the price is right, they are stupid expensive right now), MIP's for the center shafts, better wheels and tires and possibly another BEC to power some underbody lights.

That is freaking cool, I love it!!

Is the body from Parma? and is the paint airbrushed or decals?

The body is the Jconcepts 1951 Ford Panel and the marbling is paint but the lettering is done with a template (but it is painted too).
