    I picked up some touch up silver paint for a ford and a chevy, because I don't remember which silver was originally used. But it will be color matched and the putty will painted over.

    Haven't had much time to work on it. But today I lock tighted the entire chassis and reinstalled the drive line. Mounted the servo, which isn't strong enough and programmed both Hobbywing 1080 ESCs. Still body work to go, but its driveable.

    Got a little more work done on the truck. James had a much more powerful servo just laying around so I am trading him the servo I had in this truck. Cut some slots in the plastic tray for my battery straps. Picked up a pair of metal turnbuckles bent one to make a better steering angle from the servo to the steering link. Took one of the aluminum steering links off the other HPI as the plastic one just flexed too much.
