    It's a lot of work but it will all be worth it in the end for me.

    Messin around with lighting on the headlights again. Modding these smaller parts can be a pain. Still need @MESO smoked turn shields so ordered smoked 1/16 plexi for that and windows.

    Red led lights came in to mock up my BTLM. Much better.

    Your going to force me to do a build.... no way around it now. Do they offer a short bed kit, chassis options for these?

    Yes it does come in a short bed. As far as chassis go, you can choose your own. The short bed is a 370mm wheelbase, so most chassis will need to be extended. M-Fab is currently working IFS chassis to fit the Tacoma. https://www.instagram.com/manitouliu/

    So did I. Only did the one side for testing but it took quite a while to feed the wires. We should've cleaned the channels bewe glued the tail section on.

    I believe it was $220 or $230 shipped. It is expensive but it's very detailed and well designed. It comes as a kit you have to assemble.FB_IMG_1561433438377.jpg

    Even as a model, I’ll take the solid axle and radius arms over an IFS.

    Looks awesome, keep up the great work!
