I have a vinyl machine which makes life a lot easier... so all of the graphics on there were cut masks and everything except the headlights and grill is painted with Pactra spray cans...

I painted up five Woodsters so far





Those were all done for others. This one is my mine


Ain't no shelf queen - these bodies sure do take a beating!

Not as cool of a paint job but the solid black lexan should hold up extremely well. Plus I believe he said the solid colored bodys were a little thicker than the clear ones!

I can second that statement now. The solid black body I just got went for its first hard run today. The first couple times it rolled I cringed thinking I scarred up that nice black finish but I wiped the dirt off and to my amazment it seems as thought there were hardly even scuff marks on the corners where i expected them to be. Seems like this body is going to be nearly indestructable lol! Great products, no doubt about it!
