Painting Our New Traxxas RC Truck Body

Painting Our New Traxxas RC Truck Body
welcome back paint lovers today we got a special video for you the clarkman is like super excited about making and a part of it involves this rc

truck

right here this is our

traxxas

stampede which we love so much it's been such a fantastic vehicle i love crashing it i love breaking it and i love fixing it all in that order as you can see here on the

body

it is taking a lot of abuse there and especially back here it's very hard to actually keep this on anymore because of the holes gotten pushed out and busted out his back is broken as well i tried fixing it with sugru and it worked for a period of time but i decided that maybe it'd be fun for us to switch things up and try a new

body

that's why for today's experiment i bought this this is a

traxxas

3617a this is a stampede

truck

body

but as you can see it's clear which takes us to our adventure for today and that is going to be

painting

this

truck

body

this is rust-oleum brilliant metal finish i don't know what the color is name is but it's this beautiful blue let me take it in the sun and i'll show you what it looks like it has this lovely metallic finish on it and i think it's going to look really good on the

truck

this isn't all that we're

painting

today clark man was also inspired and he wants to do some

painting

as well so he's got some off-brand hot wheels cars out here and some paints and he's gonna be

painting

uh some stuff as well she's desperate this is my...
painting our new traxxas rc truck body
first car all right let's see some

painting

action clerk man we'll show them the stuff they actually want to see and then we'll we'll get over to this stuff it's a little windy today so i apologize for that they're red okay from blue to red you might have to hold on to it a little bit because he's gonna move around yeah because cars have wheels and cars roll that's right hold on to his drag race back it looks painted enough yeah that's looking really good that's nice yeah that's pretty even coat there you got i already got sprayed paint it green green green green green green you like the paint

painting

is fun that looks really cool actually all right the green's gone boom boom real good that'll keep your pain a little bit thicker see how that's kind of watered down a bit is it okay though yeah it still looks cool not less but this last car is going to be blue oh my gosh because see blue paint okay what was blue becomes red and what was red becomes blue right oh oh paint that engine rounded like the bob ross of

painting

hot wheels cars was that one done yeah oh okay i only brought three cars wow with the hot wheels painted we'll now move on to the next thing look at that thing dude so cool isn't it let's see if it's pretty similar can you tell oh it's the same i think so one's clear one's not is what the inside of that one looks like if you're curious you could it would actually be kind of...
painting our new traxxas rc truck body
neat i considered that actually here's all the stickers that go with this uh let's see what it looks like if we do a clear clerk man it is kind of cool being able to see through it right yeah you can see all the stuff and your battery and whatnot inside there but i really want to paint as much as you want to paint i want to paint too so i think we're going to have a little bit of fun too exactly dads need to have fun yeah that's what we need it's my shield don't you lose yeah this looks good to me i wouldn't say i'm the most skilled spray painter out there definitely not a graffiti artist by any means but you know gotta learn somehow and this is a great thing to experiment on you wanna shake it shake it like that oh you're the man you just got a new job clark man hit yourself in the face watch out you're stepping in your paint that was close i was almost stepping in my paint almost this is how much fun a six-year-old can have with spray paint thank you that was a good job we won't spray paint the spider oh he just climbed off went out on the spout again okay here we go first coat real light coat let's do a little test oh my gosh i'm so nervous this is not a tutorial by any means oh my god it's moving everywhere because that's what spray paint is i don't recommend doing this on a windy day by the way i can't get down on that crack there we will count this as our first coat i love the way that looks dude check...

that out it's gonna look amazing please don't blow away how's your

painting

operation sir it's still drying we should put them in the sun we'll blow away no they'll be fine look at those sweet cars dude how's mine looking safe my

truck

's blowing away here what do you think of that color that's beautiful i love it you're making it like mom's

truck

i gotta get down inside here oh i read last night too that you're not supposed to use this type of paint for this this is just like regular spray paint there's actually like hobby paint so this could all just come flaking off when i crash this but you know it's the journey oh my god when i get the decals on this and stuff these cars how they looking oh that sun dried them up i think this one's probably the best one of all be honest i like it that blue's getting decimated with the water man your paint jobs are just so good looking dude i see some spots that i really need to work on in the next coat that whole back window what i've realized in this experiment is that i'm the worst spray painter in the world sad conclusion that i've come to i think it's time though just to just start going in on this thing though i don't see any streaks or any runs i don't like that we're gonna have to hit that a little bit in the back just when you think you're done with spray

painting

you're not done it's a weird spot right there i guess okay...
i'm actually done i just can't get over how awesome that looks in the sun even on camera it shows really well and i don't think you can see it as well as i can in real life it's it's popping can i say popping it's popping next thing's next i'm going to peel the plastic coating off the outside of this which i found a little spot where it kind of started there so if you couldn't tell which i think you probably could all of the paint is on the inside so it kind of has like almost like a clear clear coat on the outside so when it gets scraped up the paint's not going to come off it's going to look it's going to look like this where it's just scratched because that's just the clear that's getting scratched out there oh there we go look at that fancy pants-ness there that's so good-looking now i gotta make it look even better i'm gonna put all these stickers on or decals matching kind of what's on this

truck

using that as a guide as i'm looking at these i'm trying to figure out this situation right here why they put that hole there instead of there where it should be i think that this might be an air this might be a messed up one because i'm going to be putting a sticker over that windshield so you're not gonna see that hole i'm gonna have to drill another one right there i don't know how that's gonna react to the plastic but i'm gonna have to do something because i like that...
antenna to come out of there try to find a drill bit that matches that hole i think this one i think that's the one this feels like a really bad idea but here we go hey not too bad oh yeah we're good to go baby not as clean as i'd ideally like it to be but what can you do since that didn't go terribly wrong i feel confident enough to do the decals or stickers or whatever you want to call these of course i start with the most important one which is the windshield not too bad i could have done worse passenger side window i'm doing this like an awkward angle just so you guys can get the shot i do it for you okay my sticker application isn't great but i do have a window we didn't cork man whoa we even got paint job oh look at this side how about my paint your paints look amazing i was admiring them while i put my stickers on i think they look great i'm happy with my coats good i'm glad you like my coats yeah i think it's cool windows are done looking good next we need some headlights on this thing we've got them here and we've got a little bumper detail with some fog lights as well just like you see on the front of this oh no the wind stop wind there you go put that that's how you beat the system clerk man you can dump it in the grass if you want to hey that looks good i'm happy with that not on that bro what in the world time for some fog lights come off there you demon there we go hey i'm pretty happy with that too...
starting to get better at this i almost forgot that this had tail lights because they are almost worn off of the back of this here but we do have tail lights hey that looks pretty darn good right there i think i decided i'm going to leave the stampede name off this side but i am going to put that tracks

traxxas

logo down below there at least that's my plan for now let's see how it looks with that on there yo i like that i like that that looks really great i wish i had one for the back window i think that would look really good that's where it being black looks nice but uh we don't have that so we'll rock it the way it is and we'll put this together and give it a test run we gotta put that antenna down through there you're my new hole that i drilled okay is it fit dude i almost forgot the battery clerk man good thing i got one here this is gonna be important if we're gonna run this right we need a battery now we're good turn it off good it's amazing to be able to put the pins in without the

body

being all crumpled up and messed up around it time for the test run glorious look at this thing as clark man sends him out oh my gosh that was close you almost messed up my paint job bro it looks good though i like i feel like it needs the stampede stickers on the side i feel like it's missing something we'll spice up life a little bit yeah i think that was a good choice there that looks really good looks more complete now we got to...
represent the stampede nation clarky i love this

truck

though you guys are thinking about getting one of these it's the cheapest worth

truck

ever no it's the cheapest

truck

that

traxxas

makes so if you're looking to get into this hobby for like 160 bucks this thing comes with everything you need and they're not even paying me to say that but they should be because we love their products and maybe one of these days they'll find us out here and they'll be like man greg and clark they're loving their their

traxxas

stuff let's send these guys some cool stuff to play with and i'll be like like an airplane or a boat or anything or submarines i'd be excited let's take it back out with the new stickers and see how fast it is with that extra horsepower my paint job you're a madman this is why we can't have nice things guys oh you can't even tell it looks mint can i drive yeah i can't believe how fast this thing is you seen those wheelies clerk i'll do one closer that's all you buddy enjoy the new painted

truck

he drives on the road it gets crushed the only downside i see to all this is that every one of our vehicles is now blue almost except for your arma every other car we have is blue i'm just i like blue that's red too that's the new secret way it comes you it goes it goes around in loop-de-loo we're gonna keep playing with this but before we send you guys out we're gonna give you one last look...
at clarkman holding this thing looking awesome you look great with the blue and the blue i'm very happy with it look at blue blue blue all right there it is painted my first rc

truck
