    Class 1 Isuzu Amigo (yes it's metal!)

    Well with the upcoming new year i decided to tackle another metal body.

    I acquired an Isuzu Amigo on loan from a club member a long time ago and i'm finally going to use it.

    it is mostly unmolested with the exception of the corners of the fenders and some scratches





    To begin, i carefully took the body apart



    then i started sanding the scratches out and prepping the body for paint. the body needs to be a smooth as possible before i mold it to get the best results

    the bigger scratches were filled





    then after primer and more sanding a coat of gloss black



    the paint cam out ok except for the hood.



    apparently, the sticker was applied at the factory with a silicone based adhesive and although it was completely sanded, cleaned with hot soapy water, alcohol and did not show through the primer, the paint went bad.

    either way i can still use it. i'll just wet sand until flat, make my molds and repaint the body for the owner.

    to get an idea of how the final truck will look, i mocked up the axles i'm going to use which are RC4WD's yota axles and Landy wheels with MT tires





    They fit pretty good although they could be a bit narrower



    More later!
