Got a bit bored today so started my sintesi project.

Basically this morning it looked a right mess as in the first pic.

Several hours of sweat later and I think the outcome is pretty cool.

I'm going to stencil some decals on, maybe in a desert sand type colour.

Question is what to do with the rest of the build?

Chris.

Thanks for the post Chris. :shock:

I love the frame, and you gave me some excellent ideas after seeing what you did. :D

Nice truck, is it a 2.5d?

As for the sintesi, Niiiice, different!

Can you get a disc on those mounts on the z1??

The disc mounts on the z1's and the frame take a 50mm spaced caliper.

I'm hoping there is something about :wink:

The truck was a 2.5d but I've just had it converted to a 200tdi, far more useable now.

Some Hope C2's are pre I.S, will check the number on mine later :wink: , if the worst comes to it you could file out the mounts to I.S size.

Truck look's great BTW 8)
