So ever since I tried the Blackfoot body one my CR-01 i have been on the lookout for a body to use on the crawler.

I finally found one on the bay that i thought was ok as a start and a good price.

I striped the body down, and boy I’ll tell you those sticker sure didn’t want to come off, took me an hour or two to get em of. I then glued shut the body mounts and the roof and used some putty on it.

So I have painted once and was not satisfied with the result, so did have to do a bit more sanding.

This is how it look after a layer with regular black

Then a layer with black metallic

Now I just have to wait for the paint to dry before I can start detailing a bit.

In the meantime I started making turn signals.

The roof don’t look that good, but it will do for a runner crawler. or will see what i do.

Now I have finished the blackfoot body, only thing remaining now is drilling the new holes for the body mounts.

So I got the magnet body mounts yesterday so i fitted the body onto the chassis today. I also decided to remove some of the Tamiya stickers I had added extra. I see that I could maybe have made a bit shorter wheelbase on the car, but I want to be able to easy switch between the blackfoot and the Landcruiser.

Took the Blackfoot out for a run today and filmed a bit, sorry for the dark pictures and for my poor driving, not that easy to drive with one hand:p

toyotalogo_zps9ed55046.pngjust had to bring the Blackfoot CR-01 with me this time to the cabin, and we got this winter’s first snow 🙂

here Are some more pictures from my trip to the cabin. So all the snow dissapared, a bit dissapointed, but stil alot of fun. One thing i have experianced while driving the Blackfoot is that mounting the body with magnets looks really nice, but it’s not smart on a crawler that will tip over several times, so i might just have to remove the magnets and drill holes in the body.
