    Well Ladies and Gents as you know I repainted my Nylint Scorpion well last time I was at walmart I saw a Nylint Jeep on clearance for 35 bucks. Well I snatched that sucker for my buddy who thought my Scorpion was the coolest thing in the world. I surprised him with it, he thought it was mine, iwas like heres your battery, charger, remote. He was like what...this is mine. Ya dude, you cant wheel your Z71 (2001) then you can wheel this with me. He flipped and pulled the this is why your my best friend bit on me.:rolleyes:


    Anyway, he dug my paintjob and I promptly demanded he give me the Jeep for one week and I would bring it back to him the next weekend. Well its thursday night and Im headin south tmw night after work. The Jeep is done on Schedule. Our highschool colors were black and gold, and hes a Hawkeyes fan. Hope he likes it. And yes I know I havnt got my links painted dark blue yet...thats gonna happen next week, I think im going to try cutting every other tread out of my tires too.

    The big ones are better IMO. They were only like 10 bucks more where I bought mine.

    Sweet paint job though.

    Yeah they are from Wally World and they are surprisingly capable little rigs.

    Nice painting skills man, do you take them apart and raddle can it or do you mask off and air brush?
