Default Rusty's Jeep

I have been eyeing this one for a little one and decided it was time to try my hand at it. This is Rusty Bray's buggy.



As always I started with a plan.


Grabbed some wheels, tires and fancy rings from MThead.


And cut up a New Bright TJ body then narrowed it a little.


As always I have modified the design a little to fit my needs and this one is going to a smaller scale with a wheelbase around 11". Should be another fun, small buggy.

More soon!

Thanks everyone!

Got a little bit more done on the chassis today.









I need to change the links out, Shorten the front a hair and lengthen the rear. Wheelbase is about 11.5" right now.


I also need to drop the hood down and shorten the front hoops a little.


It is getting close. I was going to X out the doors and roof, but I think it is over kill and no one will ever see it anyway.

Didn't get a lot done today, but did cut the shock hoops out and redo them. They are shorter now and allow the hood to sit where is is suppose too. I also got the front shock mounting tabs on.










I cut about a 1/4" out of the windshield piece (the parts that attaches to the hood). I think it helps the look on the front end.

Thanks!

Got a lot more done on the chassis in the last couple of days.

Most of the nuts are brazed on for the body panels and a couple more support bars are in.




I mocked up a 3 racing winch on the front and it is much too big so I decided to just tuck the front bumper up too the body. Im not happy with this current bumper though and am going to cut it off and make a hoop that follows the grill shape. Hopefully I can figure out how to bend it. After that I will just make a plate under the hood for a servo winch.




A few things left on the chassis; new front bumper, light bar tabs, servo winch plate... and I think that is it.
