Default my savys new make over (New engine New look)

MODS: if the pics are to big please let me know thanks.

i sent my lrp to robin on friday so in the mean time im putting the savy through the paces.
i still have quit a bit to do but heres what i got so far with a mock up of the motor, (used my old 21bb with my lrp nova head)
some of the goodies.
irc lst shocks
new adjustable uppers
an nice polish job on ALL the alumium even servo saver!
new cen diffs
new brake setup
rear tie rod eliminators (on there way)
more to come, i got a stainless screw kit on its way, so all the black plastic will get stainless and all the tvps will be held on with stainless.
i havnt decided if im keeping the stock blue lrp head on or using the nova, ill most likly keep blue untill summer. the head will be complimented with the blue stoppers on the servo are and also the blue atena tube.
i havent decided on black or blue couplers, ill prob just get both.
its been through 2 major make overs

started as:

The images are too large and break the forum table. The [img] tags have been broken leaving links. Once resized you may remove the = from the tags to reveal the images again.

Cheers,
Kyle.

there not soft at all they come with stiff foams, they don't seem like they will balloon much which is good. As for clear coat nah I'll just polish um up every once in a while only takes about 2 mims with the polish I use. ( best u can get) just can't remember the name, it's a green liquid.

well i here if you want to stop the ballooning in tires, the thing to do is get the ribbed packing tape with the ribs in it like urg im a little tired right now so its a little hard for me to explain, but apperently if you wrap the foams in this packing tape they bearly balloon atall, so i here
