I'm headed by the house again!!!! All kinds of stuff waiting!

I got a little done today. I made light buckets for the side marker lights. It's nice that all 6 of the side markers that I'm using are the same size! I still need 2 red Hummer body rear, side marker lights if any of you guys happen to have any!!!!!!

Me too! A couple of orders from RPP. An order from Locked Up and some stuff from a couple of guys on here. Oh! And my light kit that Heyok made for me!

OH! Big news! I finally found a set of 1.9 Double Troubles! I am seriously bummed out though! I don't think they'll be there till Friday and I'm only swinging by. I'll be stopping on Thursday! Anyway, the tires and wheels that are on it now will probably be for sale along with a bunch of other stuff when I get closer to being done with it!

That's great news. I had the double troubles with the body but I was having a hard time selling the body since alot of people are intimidated by a project body that I just sold the wheels first.

Yah, I understand! Lol! I'm actually going to end up with 2 sets of dually rims. I found a set on eBay that are very close to the double troubles. I guess "knock offs". They are in shanghai I think. Anyway, I ordered them and they ended up being on back order. Then yesterday afternoon, I found out that Semi Joe had gotten ahold of a couple of new sets! So I snagged one of them! I've got an idea for them though. Being that they are pretty much the only dually rims made, everyone building a dually uses them. I want mine to stand out and be at least a little bit different!

It's kind of funny. There's so much trial and error with this build. I'm going to be left with a decent amount of unusable parts when I'm done. But, that's a good thing! It'll help fund my next project! A Southern Buggy!

Anodize/power coat them black and have some remachining on the edges. That would be sweet.

I got my new rims and tires! I'm going to down to the powder coaters this morning with them to see what we can do with them. I'm really happy about the tire choice too! I think I can live with what is sticking out now. The dual sets aren't quit as wide so they don't stick out as far. Yeah!

Yip! I have a buddy that runs a gun shop, my other hobby, and has a machine shop. He actually put the dang things in his mill and did it! It was his idea. I think it's awesome! The are actually not powder coated. It's called CERAKOTE. It's kind of like powder coating but a lot tougher! It was actually developed as a coating for guns. The next time I'm in town, he wants to do the polishing on the rims with one of his machines. So they'll have to wait for a while for that.

Thanks! I have to get the right size scale bolts for them. I thought I had them already but I can't find them if I do.
