Feel like I spent all weekend making panels to mount stuff to this Wraith...

First I prototyped an 0.028" thick Aluminum panel that might make its way into production, this panel is designed to mount either the 3", 4" or 5" MadDogRC - chino63 light bar to the top (or bottom) side of the Wraith roof.



Next I prototyped another set of panels that definetly will be a production piece. These 0.060" black Styrene panels will allow users to mount our Wraith specific Delrin Rock Lights to the under side of the Wraith rockers.



Lastly, I fab'd and painted an Aluminum tailgate panel that Ill use to mount a single rock light that I painted red as well as a d-ring for towage.



Some install pictures coming tonight...

Good looking setup. Where did you find lock nuts that would fit on the tie rod and drag link ends.

Sold, let me know when they are ready. Those light panels with lights is a done deal, I'll take a tailgate piece as well. . Awesome clean work Sir!

I got the M4 hex nuts from my local hardware store, if yours doesn't carry them you can try mcmaster.com

10-4, I'll a have small batch made of both the light bar and rock light panels.

Now on to an update; first I made up a wiring harness to hook up all these lights, it ended up as a two piece harness since the switch will be attached to the interior and I want to keep every thing modular.



The new light bar panel can be used under the stock roof panel to ensure a sturdy base to attach the bar, it will also work under with the Dinky lid with the 3" light bar:



The rock light panels attach to the inner case with zip ties, the Wraith specific rock light buckets attach with thin M3 hardware so as not to interfere with the interior:



The outer holes of the rock light panels use M2.5x8mm screws in the stock locations, M2.5 hex nut will be used to hold in the interior:



I also assembled the tail gate to the chassis, the M2.5x8 screws in the lower holes of the d-ring bracket go straight through the frame so that it's stout. Here is mock up with side panels, mmm...



Hood mounts are Associated cross drilled socket head cap screws with some 3mm Aluminum spacers:



And how could you not want a 2" light bar on the front bumper?...fits nicely in stock location...

Rough cut was made with a abrasive cut-off wheel on a Dremel. I finished the cut using the round end of my stationary belt sander.

OK, you got pics!

Didn't want to put any of the stock lights back on so I zip tied another set of the 1" rock lights to the front bumper. The angle is actually perfect to illuminate the rocks in front of the tires:



Roof light came out pretty cool. I wish I would have not cut the opening in the top until after I measured it, now I have two 3/16" "air ducts" on each side...



Rear panel turned out sweet:



Now pics:

On the shocks you just added 12mm of tubing to the inside and thats it? Want to replace the stockers but want to stay the same length or tad shorter even. ALso mounting hardware, use the stock hardware?
thanks!
Great rig, dig those lights!
