Working on some new axles with built in truss and a bit simpler design for the panhard mount and m2 nut retainers for the king pins.

On the rear axle I tightened the tolerances for the lockout hubs and added extra material for added strength.

Well forgot to post a picture of the new housings but their working out nicely!





Also working on printing out a new set of seats based of the JX trim level seats you can get in the samurai!

oops forgot to update this bad boy but here we go!

The seats came out AWESOME and really happy with the end result




Also made a new back cover... THIS TIME WITH A OPENING LID!




Also finally painted the inside of my hood


Currently looking to fix some looseness that's developed in my knuckles and print out a new steering column and steering wheel! then eventually look at getting the front an rear lenses colored more accurately.

Man, you're seriously designing and printing some desirable components!

Awesome axles, seats and trick-truck-tonneau-thing...

Thanks man! the cover is based off the rally tops sport cover for the samurai (which I have on my 88 daily driver)
Axles have been fun they have 8o KPI and caster though still need to work on getting ackermen closer to right.
Seats I'm really really happy with cause those were a pain to scratch make in tinkercad just to get the cushion pads an bolsters somewhat closer to the JX seats I'd LOVE to have in my samurai!

Great job T Tank, its an amazing build and looks absolutely fantastic!! I'm amazed at what you have done with your skills and a printer. ..

I'm a technological cave man so I'm loving all the new printed parts that are available today for the less talented.

Its truly amazing what 3D printing has done for the hobby we don't need a little cnc lathe an mill to make parts or lots of styrene plates glued together to make custom bodies (though still impressive so see folks to that)
