Pro-line Ford F650 Body - Extended


I love how the F650 body looks on the Savage, but after adding FLM's extended chassis the one for the Savage was a little short. Fortunately Proline makes the same body but in a slightly larger version for the Revo or MGT and this one fits on the Savage perfectly. I painted it the same to replace the original.


Made in USA


Paint used:

Pactra RC250 - Outlaw Black

Tamiya PS5 - Black (backing)

Tamiya PS48 - Anodized Aluminum



Here it is compared the one from the Savage. It's longer and wider. It will fit completely over the other one.


Proline F650 Extended



This one is a much better fit.


RC Body F650 Clear Lexan



I lined the body up, marked the mounts and drilled out small holes before painting. After painting I go in with the body reamer and enlarge the holes.

I always get better results from many light coats instead a couple of thick ones. Much easier to keep it even. Here's is an example of one coat for me.

All painting done. All that's left is pealing the over-spray film and stickering. Then it will be time to destroy it so I can do it all again soon.


Painted F650



The Savage was converted to brushless but at the voltage they run at; they can still generate some heat as well, so I added some ventilation holes just like the nitro version.


Proline F650 done



Complete and in place.
