You mean because they are not pink?

The biggest reasons I went with the Grand over the King were the rear fenders and the silver shocks. Although I wish Tamiya had gone with radius bars and air bags, springs and shocks will do.
On a side note, has anyone here had any experience with the OB-1 RC V3 trailer light system? I contacted SS Tronix and their out of business. I would have liked to support an independent small business instead of a faceless Chinese company of unknown quality but I don't see much of a choice at this point. I'm even leaning towards the Tamiya 40' reefer over the Hercules Hobby one even though the HH one is close to $200 cheaper.

Waiting for paint to dry before the next build installment.

I don't know. My aero max has the first lightning system on the truck and the trailer. No sound but electrical legs for the trailer and my dad king hauler a robbe or graupner sound system originaly sold for rc boats.

I've de-anodised aluminium parts with caustic soda ... though I would recommend a loop of somthing through a hole so you can remove it quickly (or at least a big bucket to quickly dilute the solution) as the process does tend to go nothing ... nothing ... nothing ... then FWOOSH!!! like soluble aspirin ...

You can remove the dye with various solvents. I used "Greased Lightning" for my CR-01 parts. I guess it doesn't matter if you already have silver shocks though.

You can grit it with 1000 paper to. Or brush it with the dremel.

All good suggestions on de-anodozing. I'll probably go caustic soda since I already have it around for cleaning my brewing equipment.

Wet paint and work have gotten in the way of the build, but I've finally gotten on to Screw Bag D.
