Nice progress! There's too many aspects to comment on, but you have a lot of momentum and it all looks great! The cms will be interesting. Keep up the progress!

We're just about done now! I spent 5 or 6 hours on it today, and all that is left to do is a bit of grinding cleanup and paint, as well as front and rear bumpers.

Cut the rollbar to match the roof:





Starting the back:





Lots of bracing, added the rear lights:



Got the roof nuts on and the roof bolted down properly:



Bunch of bracing. She'll hopefully hold up to Wraith-like abuse!





Trimmed the hood a bit more:



Monted the light buckets. The new owner will supply the LEDS, but it'll come with the buckets.





Side panels:



Light guard. (Removable)



Intake / Electronics Cooling system:





And that's how she sits for now! More tomorrow.



Thanks!

That thing looks mean! I don't know if I missed it or it wasn't there but what are you using for tubing? Doesn't look like brakeline...

That is some Awsome tube work, the roof scoop really makes it look like an all out dessert or KOH rig.

Thanks! It's 3/16 .035 wall steel tube, hydraulic tube I think. All the 1/8 is solid. I hate brakeline! ;)

I see... it's real nice being welded over soldered. If you don't mind telling me where do you source something like that? I found some at McMaster but it's on the expensive side there. That would probably make some nice links too.

Try your local steel place- maybe call around and see which of them carry the small stuff. I got mine from an ORCRC member who works with it.

So what color should I paint the panels? I'm thinking metallic red. The chassis is black.
