    I’ve had my truck for around a month now. Already its changed a lot.

    Here it is when I started.


    Then I moved onto this project shell.



    This is the Chinese hilux hard-body copy from Banggood. It would have fit with the bed on, which is a surprise with the shorter deadbolt stock wheelbase.
    But I wanted something a little different.
    So after a lot of trimming, styrene and filler I ended up with this.




    Yep…. I added Negan as a suitable driver.

    Also, new heavy wheels and some under body protection (Steel skid plate and diff guards).

    Really happy with it. I thought that I may have added a little bit too much weight up top but it drives and climbs really well.

    I’m sure I’ll keep adding to it.

    I’ve already started planning the next build.

    Looking great, much, much better than stock. That interior was quite a funky colour originally..!

    ‘Banggood’ almost got me in big trouble with the missus – she saw some notification emails in my inbox and immediately thought it was some sort of ‘adult’ site..

    Strong improvement, you could make that body ‘pop’ a little more by painting in the window rubbers and the door handles if you fancy.  Looks mean, I like the stance.

    Thanks guys!

    The Banggood emails do have a bit of ‘adult site’ quality about them.

    I’ll be sure to add some more detail to the body soon. 👌🏼

    Looks like a nice class 2 build, the window rubbers and door handles are really worth the effort when you find time 👍
