Re: How about an aluminum body!

"These bodies do hold up quite well and no paint necessary"


Now depending on where you live paint will be necessary, as the aluminum will oxidize in a very moist climate. Thus turning white.

Re: How about an aluminum body!

Not to rain on anyone's Aluminum parade here but <font color=red>"Whatcha gonna do when you bash it aginst a rock."?</font color=red>

Aluminum ain't the easiest material to work with when it's bashed, hit, crumpled, punched, dimpled, folded, mutilated and spindled.

But yep, it is pretty.

Re: How about an aluminum body!

thats why you need a brass tub.

sure it's expensive, but It will almost never ever rust or oxodise.

Re: How about an aluminum body!

I think someone should make a NERF tub. Think about it.....

Bash a rock? No Problem, it flexes and goes right back to its original shape...
Parking lot fender bender, no problem....
Never needs paint
Lightweight....
Inexpensive....

Just dont get it wet!!!

Give me Jeep or Give me Death!!!

(Will trade functioning organs for CJ-7 or flatfender)
