Default my first custom chassis build

well i finally decided to make the big leap and make a custom chassis for my wheely king. after lookin around for a while to figure which one i liked most ( i hate tubers) i decided on the manta ... based solely on its sexyness.



as you can see i didnt cut out the lower portion of the "door" because im gonna try to have everything hidden as best as possible.

well here we go. time to scrap the truck.



oh god what have i done?!?

well i sketched up the motor plate that im gonna cut out and am planning on a tranny mount that i seen on another thread that rotates the motor down to the skid plate level with the d/shaft outputs.







thanks for lookin ... to be continued tomorrow.

and i just noticed that i got the holes drawn wrong for the plate where it mounts on the tranny and fixed it on the drawing

What do u guys use to cut the slots in your motor mounts, which look good by the way? im thinking some sort of end mill bit on a dremmel tool.

well heres an update ... been a while but i got some good work done on it since

heres a couple shots of my motor/ tranny mount all assembled






sorry that the pics are so blurry ... my camera is absolutly crap

anywho here is how the rig sits tonight









still got to mount my shocks and rear uppers and electronics and ... well lots of stuff ... but its coming together.and to answer your question rockcrawlingkid .. i drilled lots of little holes along the path and used a dremmel with a milling type tip to clean out the rest, if that makes sense
