Hopefully the powder coating doesn't end up too thick and cover up the great detail on this chassis! You did an amazing job. Looks super scale!

What is great about this build, everytime you change something on your 1.1 rig, you have to work on this tiny turk too! Fun stuff. I cant wait to build my mini me turk. I just need to finish my 1.1 first!

What the hell was that?!
The build took so long your tires dry rot!

But seriously, wonder what happened?

The drivetrain components are looking great.
 
Had the same thing happen to a set of Pit bulls. Not sure why it happen as they where just on the shelf and didnt have them for that long ether.

It's weird. I have other tires more older than this one and it never cracks. Anyways i will still run them until it blows lol.
Got the chassis from powder coat! It was worth it. A little thick but it covers all the imperfection. Can't wait to start building!!!

It really makes it look great having it all in one color.

Did they give you an option on thickness when you had the coating done?

My friend took to his powder coat guy. And he just told him a not too thick coat. I still have to check all the holes and probably redrill. But the best part is its free!
