    Here is the finished product. Wanted a more subdued robot mode with matte finishes and a flashy, pompous truck mode.Made the following upgrades and changes:

    - Hand painted silver flame outlines
    - Upgraded 32" high performance rims/tires
    - High performance brake pads and rotors behind rims
    - Custom cast head in clear plastic with dedicated battery, switch and dual SMT LED behind each eye. This does not affect the regular LED in the neck.
    - Neck LED changed to red
    - Custom cast and reinforced 1/60th gundam hands with full articulation. These are attached magnetically
    - Custom extended and angled smoke stacks
    - Custom trailer to be included in auction
    - Custom built guns that attach magnetically in the forearms. Both wired with multiple LEDS and have replaceable batteries and dedicated switches.
    - Painted with Allclad II mirror chrome, and then truck sections over coated with House of Kolors black pearl automotive paint. All truck portions clear coated with House of Kolors clear coat.
    - Also added custom Bull Dog hood ornament for flair! :D

    Pretty friggin sweet, I got a Nemesis in the works too, still waiting for parts from Japan before I can finish fabricating and start priming. Where'd you find those hands? I've been trying to find some for mine but not having any luck.

    It reminds me of that old "Trick my Truck" show that "Pimp My Ride" spawned. That thing is badass! Too bad you don't have matching rims on the trailer. Where's the bulldog from? Oh - and those rims on the truck are probably scaled closer to 34" instead of 20". A stock wheel assembly on most rigs has factory rims at least 19". Those chrome badboys on yours would be hell big wheels.

    I like it, the only thing I don't like is the stacks, they are too big for the truck....
    but that is my only complaint.
