OK... maybe not for everyone...
but I hate throwing useable things in the trash...

Anyway... bought two li-po's
and they came packaged in a blister pack/card.

So... before throwing those into the trash...
thought I'd see what I could do to use them some more first.

The blister paks aren't scale looking by any means...
I only thought to cover the opening that runs thru
and under the flat bed surface. (looks funky to me)

just a couple expectations for me...

...attempt of PTM to the primary body (failed that)

...assure tires do not rub at full articulation

short of the slight paint mismatch... good enough

li-po blister pak similar to mine...



mounting is simply replacing the 6 deck screws (3 per side)
those secure that deck to the cage.

I replaced the original deck screws with similarly sized cap bolts and nuts.
Du-bro 2-56 X 1/2" Cat. No. 310, Nuts = Cat. No. 560


pics of it mounted...















as you can see I didn't spend a much time with it...
I think it looks awrite... maybe a little better with time spent...

but I really want a full std bed... this is just a temporary thang ;-)

so tell me how much you hate it !?
:flipoff:

it's not rocket science...
so I see no point of pictures showing 6 bolts and nuts securing
hopefully common sense would overcome. Lol

flatbed pics
Looks good !

I want a full depth bed...
thinking some styrene sheet would get 'er done for me.

I've since installed the Dinky bedside kit.



Dinky interior, with Wild Willy's driver figure...









new body, velcro mounted up front instead of body posts/pins...





and let's not forget, my faux radiator core...





home brew bumpers, sliders...







have a functional Warn winch coming...
and need to install some lights on the front bumper.
Then I paint up the rock ware.

my first non-winch bumper...



just like 1:1 stuff... it never ends.

Dude that's not bad man. I like how these little crawlers look. I just wish someone made a Dcab body. The jeep people have it made with the jeep body axial is using. I wish they'd show toyota more love, lol.

Here is mine with no mods. I tried different wheels and shocks, but ended up coming back to stock.
