It is coming together nicely

It sure sucks when you have parts waiting at home and you are out of town working. Happens to me all the time

Looks great. I dig the "hydro steer" drag link. Are you going to make hoses for it?

I feel your pain on parts and projects waiting while you are away. I do it 6 mos at a time.

Started tubework today, not too bad for my first time brazing and firstime doing all my own bends.


Really like the aggressive look this thing is starting to achieve

Took a break from tubework and started a little of the interior. I did a flat sheet of diamond plate for the bad area,I know not very original but gets rid of the headache of concealing electronics.the body is rough cut so don't pay attention to the lines

Thanks neither can I. Sooo,here's a list of shit that's gone wrong; rc4wd winch controller---didn't work out of the bag,decided against brushless and went with a mamba micro pro for size,1 min into test run----smoked. Gonna be a couple days for the new one so i decided to redo the interior with some thicker stuff made a batt/electronics box up front and bent up and brazed a dashboard



Hopefully ill be running before the weekend,lhs was able to warranty it out just gotta wait a couple days now.
