« on: January 29, 2012, 11:03:41 AM »

Bought this second hand off another forum as i wanted something todo now i have my hobao hyper 7 buggy finished

Heres the base for the project a Hobbyking Piranha 600 (670mm) that needs some work






And after a strip down and decal removal





The boats going to get repainted after the bad bits are repaired

Spider Cracks in the gel coat on the cowl


Missing gel coat on the cowl edge

ordered a motor and esc but its over kill imho, stock motor pulls 41a max and is a 2858 2881kv running on a 50 amp esc (piece of tat tho) what i ordered is a 3658 2700kv what pulls 90 amp max and a 180 amp esc  %% %% {-)

anyhoo is in primer and the final filling is done, the new mounts are glassed in place too, not sure on the colour(s) yet i have some nice 2k paint in a few colours if not i will get a 1/4 of a litre mixed at the local paint shop
