FAN FRIDAY FEATURED BUILD BY PAVLOS CHRISTOFI
Pavlos build info;
This project started life as a Standard D90 body on an Axial SCX10 chassis, but my son crushed and broke the body in the rear. This was not a body I wanted to waste so it was time to formulate a new plan. Modifications started by cutting the body in half and removing the side panels. Browsing Thingiverse I found a conversion file to convert the D90 into a pickup so to the 3D printer we go! But I wanted something different. I had a roll cage from my stock Honcho sitting around and I thought why not? Next problem was that the roll cage was wider than the stock D90 setting I motion even more changes and customizing. I ordered different Styrofoam sheets and started gluing and sanding to connect the side panels with the front body. With the result being this wild D90. 3D printed some light buckets and designed and printed the radiator grill. Then I needed rear bumper. Inspired by the original bumper I set out to make a copy seen in the pictures. Searching for inspiration I found in the trash a 1mm rusty sheet of metal. Using some cardboard sheet, I then made a template to transfer the to the sheet metal. Brought out the Welder and made some magic and now I have a custom rear bumper! Bear in mind this was my first build.
