    I got some RIT dye and used it on my white rims and rear wing. The color I used is Royal Blue #29 and it only took 4 minutes of soaking to get this shade and color blue. I'm very happy with the results.

    Now I just need the new HPI Sand Busters so I can put them on these rims.

    I notice a white chassis I believe and also the rear upper arms have a new piece /spacer on them. Also the windshield which looks to be mounted flush within the roll-cage and more I see...

    Thanks for the compliments guys.
    phatdad and General you found all three parts
    1-billet wing pins
    2-rear shock tower
    3-rear upper arm spacers

    The weather is bad so I stripped the purple and got it all polished up, and also used the extra lexan from the new body to make the windshield.

    Thanks again guys.
