Clockwork! :angry:

Looks really cool beans. One word of warning that I learned the hard way fron using the CJ body. The side windows and the space below the roll cage are not wist to cut out completely unless you have a CJ roll cage under it. If you roll it a few times these tend to break quite easily as I have found.

I have been using my other CJ8 for a while, what I did was cut only enough of the side windows out to access the fuel tank without removing the body. I also dont remove the entire rear window either, just a square portion above the head with rounded corners to prevent it from cracking there. The only problem I have had with mine is where the rollbars meet the body, from a bad landing or two it has buckled there and the plastic wheel well split where it meets the body,no roof problems at all yet.

Dude you're killing me with this...I am truly ROFLMAO...

Nice body. I like the camo' and the colors you chose. It is almost too pretty to run...a couple of bash sessions and it won't look so nice. Do take care of it.

Yet another good NC body. Keep it up. The better our bodies look, the more people will watch. And that's what it's all about.
RGFarm, enjoy it!

Wow. Sharp truck.

Window tip:
Use a whole saw on your drill and make round holes. The round holes will not weaken the integrity of the body near as mush as simply cutting the windows out.

It works, really…

I would have to say it took me well over 15 hours to paint it. With all the masking, painting and unmasking, it truly was a royal pain in the butt! Much more difficult than I had anticipated.

Thanks Fett, too bad I won't be bashing with it, it's already on its way to Kansas, to RGFarm. I just finished a xxxnt body for Divine that I will be bringing to him on Labor Day at the bash. Now that everyone elses bodies are done I need to do one for me now.
