LOL that happens almost all the time. are you planning on running fog lights as well?


Naw Mike I don't plan on running them, I wanted to be able to see my FMIC a little. I would have had to fade the paint which I am not to good at yet. Like I said the other day I would like to get the rocket bunny kit for it minus the over-fenders. So me doing that now would sorta be a waste of time and effort.



Nice! yeah my RB kit should be here after christmas maybe. Not buying anything else from that poin on until i finish all the bodies i have! lol

The front bumper is a 3 piece item, he's missing the line for the side pods, but even on 1:1 cars its hard to make out that it's a separate piece from the fender. The skirts are 2 piece, and rear valence is 3 piece. If there was one thing I had against the ABC 180sx, it's that they didn't do the 180sx the rear valence.

Aside from that minor nit pick, I'm really diggin the body. Street style is the best :D The small details like the front bumper latches are cool.

But the Body line for the front bumper isnt right ^^^


I was simply following the lines that were in the body, that will be corrected tonight.

this body isn't suppose to have the lip so the body lines are correct. Just missing the other line above the side panel of the bumper to make it more like its 3pc.

Ahhh, so the front lip and rear valence will be made available by RC Art? That makes a lot more sense as to why it has no rear valence and why the body line went straight down haha... my bad :oops:

That's what happens when there are more knockoffs floating around than the original. People start to believe they're the real deal...

Did some more work today on it, I threw some diamond cut tires on it. Redid my wheel nuts with the work center cap. Also smoked the side markers and blacked out the front reflectors.

Finally got around to finishing this project.

I redid all of the body lines with abc hobby tape, it's much nicer than kyosho line tape.

Stanced as good as I can get it, also added a tow hook on the right side cutout on the bumper

Lol, not me. I build them to drive them. If something does go terribly wrong I have a backup plan. Addiction Rocket Bunny kit, and I still have enough of this color to paint another.

Anyone have any ideas on how I can attach this, I was thinking either shoe goo or 3M double sided tape.
