    Some people might say that what you have done is blasphemous, I say bravo sir! I love things that are unusual and bad@$$ and I would say this fits both criteria. That paint has to be one of the best paint jobs I have ever seen and it looks great. I have just one suggestion though. Some mirrors would really complete the body. I feel like there is a bit of a gap between the front side window and "A" pillar that a mirror would fill very nicely. Just a suggestion. Great build man!

    how about a set off of a Tamiya Toyota tundra or ford f350 high lift or one of these might look better http://www.ebay.com/itm/RC-Car-Truc...Control_Parts_Accessories&hash=item2ed318c4cb I simply went to ebay and typed in rc car side mirrors and came up with a lot of options everything from truck mirrors to sport mirrors with LEDs
