Aaron Bailey has a fondness for metal-bodied trucks. A few months back he sent us pics of his Tonka truck/Ascender conversion. This time it’s an Axial Wraith 1.9 clad in minimalist metal panels bolted to the tube frame for a decidedly rat-rod look. The panels are steel sheet, weathered with a “special potion” of Aaron’s invention to give it the right look. He added front and rear bumpers and sliders from Pig Snot Chassis. The 1.9 links are made by RC4x4 Performance Stainless and it wears a set of King Off-Road Scale Piggyback shocks. The wheels from Hot Racing are also steel and roll on Axial RipSaw tires. Aaron finished it off with scale accessories from various sources including a canoe, fire extinguisher, and driver figure.
