    sgtsteve's new D90 - RC4WD Gelande II

    I was super lucky enough to win this beauty from RC4WD. It should have been here last week but UPS lost it, then found it, then took their sweet a$$ time to deliver it. Fortunately, it arrived tonight

    RC4WD Gelande II





    Got my tools all ready to go. Decided that such a beautiful rig would need some great hardware. Every screw that can be replaced, will be replaced with Locked Up RC's M3 and M2 Scale Hex Bolts I will also finally be mounting up that sweet Metal Hi-Lift jack from The Scale Shop (thank you Cory)!



    Im not planning on a full build thread, but will post milestones of the progress. I have a few upgrade/hop-ups on their way now and should have them by this weekend.

    XVD For Yota II Front Axle (Z-S0823[/URL])
    Gelande II Steering Guard (Z-S0824[/URL])
    Spare 5 Lug Wagon Wheel (Z-Q0023[/URL])
    Mud Flap For Gelande II (Z-S0890[/URL])

    Once in stock, these will be ordered:
    Land Rover Defender D90 Emblem Set (VVV-C0004[/URL])
    ARB Land Rover Defender 90 Winch Bar Front Bumper for Gelande 2
    Part Number Z-S0853

    For paint, Im planning on a light blue, weathered look. Time to build

    So I wasn't expecting to pull an all nighter but everything went together so well that I decided to keep going. I finished up at around 2am and although I still have a few scale bolts to cut down and swap out, here it is.















    Today I will work on getting the electronics in"thumbsup"
