Yeah, I think I will! This will give me something to work on this winter. It already has a fairly new set of SSD D60 axles under it.

Thanks for giving me that little nudge I needed to get it off the shelf and back out on the trails!

Well I said I wasn't going to use it until I'd fnished it but I couldn't resist on my day off work yesterday so gave it a little maiden run.

Main changes made over the old set up are heavier axles, better shocks and OD in the front and man what a massive difference it makes.

I now sort of regret putting fragile stuff on the bed because if I used this rig to it's full potential it would do just about anything.

There's one particular line none of my previous rigs have ever been able to get up, even the 2.2 stuff and this thing got up it yesterday, super happy.

Considering buying another bodyshell now, something as light as possible and something I am not too bothered about rolling over onto and keeping this set up for shelf queen duties and light trail runs, but I am still unsure.

This has definitely given me a bit of enthusiasm to get it finished off as well though.

Small update, nothing too spectacular, fitted a nicer bumper, but I am having trouble finding one I actually like, they either sit too far forwards, like the one above, or like the one below, they are a tad on the small side.

Suppose the best option is to buy the Wertymade Power wagon specific bumper, with that being said, I have already damaged the bed and body in a roll over, so I am seriously considering buying a Pro-line Hilux SR5 body for this now, to keep the weight down and lower as possible.

And maybe put this on a spare chassis and just have it as a shelf queen... Or maybe sell it, I am undecided.

Anyway for now, here's a few pictures from the last run out, I am going to be uploading some footage very soon, just been busy with work and no time to edit.

Some photos from a recent trail and crawl at a new location, I have found my body is getting caught on a lot of stuff and my bed has taken some quite severe damage, mostly to where the body sits in the slots of the bed.

My options moving forward are to get a new body (looking at the SR5 Hilux) to save this one from being totally destroyed... Drive the truck more gently, which kinda goes against setting up such a well performing chassis in the first place or just remove the 'bed' as it is and have a very basic set up just to hide some stuff, I'm still undecided on what to do.

Myself, my Dad, my nephew and brother-in-law, really good day was had, hope you enjoy the pictures.



My SSD front bumper is well scratched up now!

So I kept damaging the mounts sadly and the bottom of the body, plus it bounced around a bit and I desperately don't want to add body posts and clips.

So I've now added the proper bed to the truck.

Chopped the arches to suit.

Inner fenders still to be added.

Going to add a few scale items to the bed I think.

Interior is also now in, with a driver coming soon, more exterior details to come too.

I can now swap between the full bed and my custom bed relatively easily.

She is also now named.

Little update on my truck.
New spot lights fitted after the others died, decided to go different, because I am always changing my rigs, so the new lights are orange.
Also added some warm white lights inside the cab, so the interior and driver are now all lit up.
Liking it overall.

Some more progress, more lighting added, more body details with fire extinguisher and jerry can, plus a rear license plate, she's now got a magazine, bottle of whisky, her gun and some smokes, she seems happy!

Added the externally mounted battery, made the decision to lose a little bit of performance in order to mount the body and not have to remove it again, I think it's worked pretty good, as a faux toolbox, more details to do yet though.

Small lightbar on top, four reasons for this, I prefer the look of a small one, anything bigger was a bit too wide for the curve of the body, it's less weight up top and it's ridiculously bright anyway.

I've also made some head light guards, only for looks, I know if they take a hard hit they will probably break.

Lemme know what you think so far!

"theotherwoman" is looking beautiful!

Great job on the styrene work. Inner fenders and light guards look great!

Where did you find the tiny pack of Marlboro's? I've gotta get a pack of them!

Thanks a lot man, I am loving it
I got the cigarette packet from a friends shop here in the UK.
But their is a seller I have saved on eBay, he's in Slovakia, but his postage times are pretty good, to the UK at least, it's around 3-4 days.
He sells some pretty cool stuff, he actually did me a custom Playboy too, to match the date my Bronco body was made.
Hope that helps.

Well that was a bright idea!

Now have mega bright interior lighting, rock lights and lightbar.

Normal running lights are on all the time now, flick of a switch and night turns to day lol!

Super happy, all home made, for way way less than any RC light kit.

She has no excuse for not going out in the evening now!

I have now changed from Velcro holding the body on to magnets.

So far I am finding the magnets better, they have a more positive feel when taking the body off and putting it back on, they also 'auto-locate' the body to the exact same position everytime, which is a big benefit over Velcro.

They also require no 'pressing' when you put the body on, just drop it on and it's secure.

Currently using some 1kg pull on each post, feels like I could have used about 0.6-0.7kg, the full 1kg is a little much, so I have simply added some Gorilla tape over the magnets to create a little gap, it's worked well and feels perfect.

Here's some photos from our most recent outing, was hoping it would be four trucks but my little nephew isn't too well so he gave it a miss.

The new 1500mah 3s packs lasted really well though, I took four with me, only needed two of them, got about 1 1/2 hours from each just trailing, more than I expected.

Some of you will also recognise the blue Jeep body, currently residing on my Dads SCX10ii, he borrowed it after selling his Deadbolt body, he's got a Power Wagon to do, but it wasn't finished in time for the run.
