I have a Bruiser that I just adore. I bought that stunning interior that RC4WD sells for my TF2 build but then got annoyed that the inside of my Bruiser looked lame. I decided that I can upgrade the interior and make it look awesome without spending another $175. Here is where we are right now. I am super irritated at the proportions that I have been forced to make since I need to fit the form factor that Tamiya made for the dash. Basically it is a drop in. Trust me, I know more than anyone that the "squareness" of the trucks dash is all wrong but again, there is nothing I can do about it since I don't want to totally destroy the stock interior. This will be many separate parts so that the dash is not only simple to paint but will also illuminate. Updates soon.
