Default Hemistorm Penta Body

Thanks again to RCLS, tgn, and hemistorm. Well I got the body on Monday evening and painted it Tuesday. I got it mounted for the most part yesterday, I had to go and buy some longer body screws for the rear panel today. My first impression of the body was wow, looks better in person and feels really durable and thick. My only complaint is the 4 screws needed for the rear panel don't come with it and the spaces provided need to reamed out for the screws to fit through. I just used some nylon spacers I had and got some screws from home depot.
Anyway, I think it came out okay. Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1341531668.971737.jpg

I had another theme I wanted to do but it got complicated with all the changing lines on the penta and it didn't really look right. I'll use it on my next body which will be a full body.

I might be able to get some video tomorrow, I'll be running with Troyster in the morning before the sun gets blazing hot.

Looks great Ant. That body gives the truck a whole new look. Keep us posted on how it holds up.

Thanks. I'll be running it hard tomorrow. I'm not to worried about hurting the body, more concerned about my CVs snapping but we know that's a different story altogether.

I had fun painting again though it's been awhile. Took a lot more paint than I thought too. I'm thinking about getting another body now, but taking like a week to paint it. I'll be using liquid mask next time so I can really do what I want, masking tape is just to much of a PITA for something this size and time consuming.

I used 4 cans of Pactra today painting the inside of my body 1 color. I still have to buy 1 more as there are a few light spots. They need to sell a 20oz can for the Losi!

Heck yeah he beats and run his truck hard and often. He's the perfected tested and I've talked with him before and know he's a straight shooter.

I taped it in a few spots with gorilla tape and a bit of shoe goo. Not too much though, the next time I have the body off I will touch it up some more.

That paintjob looks killer Antny! You did an awesome job on it, I have to agree with Scope, the right guy won this contest. I hope you are having fun with it, and that it will serve its purpose for a very long time.

Try snapping some action shots!
