Hello,

I've just made two angles,
The smaller is for the hinge to open the Exocage,
The larger one is for the frontbumper and support for the body.

so the two angles have now just installed,
just as I had imagined it fits.
Rear:

Front:

And with body:

Must be of course still be adjusted when the bumper is in line.
But now it is once more at the rear.

Hello,

so cut just a little tubes and filed.


The tubes are fixed with Tesa only.
And again with spare wheel.


A small Sunday evening work.
What is the?

There will be a small RC box.

The box is ready.
Installation point that I could open the hood and then the box.

Either way, since I anyway the body flap high
and still have room for a servo winch front of the box.

Hello,

A half night shift on Monday,
Have a little brazing,
Here is the result.



Unfortunately, not as straight as I would have wished,
But it still holds within limits,
I can still hide it.

So he would start the Brocken Tour 2018, with spare wheel.

After the night shift at monday did not go much,
Have only the RC box installed.


Now he is no longer wrong.
A new tube brace soldered in and the left side adjusted afterwards,
Under the new tube one can see the old,
is about 20 mm shorter than the new pipe.

Hello,

Today I installed the second rock Slider.

And a stiffening at the back of the cage.

On this brace also the spare can then take place.


Now it goes to the front of the Cage.

Hello,

so have just the part Cage screwed,
it come out here two versions.
The Trial / Havoc Mountain Man version, without spare wheel.

The Scale / Trophyversion, with spare wheel and still a lot of scale parts.


Both versions please me, but both have four-wheel steering.

I think now comes my bending test,
The 6x1 pipe must bend in four directions,
I have to follow the body contour
And then it should fit.

And then the whole also on the passenger side.
I hope I get the weekend to and I have the leisure and patience
there is real popular reasoning and spatial thinking.
But first the driver must fit.

Hello,

at the weekend if i build a lightbar with 12 LEDs.
First test with 8 LEDs.

And then with 12 LEDs

By night.



And again soldered six points on Cage,
the sides of the doors and still Bar Set,
under which the light beam is mounted also.


So the cage looks so far with the body.

Hello,

so I think I've finished about the cage.
To at least the cage, except for the mounting on the chassis,
Which is however today made, it can then fold up together with the body.

I fixed the Center Hoop Stinger on the car with the torch at the cage
And not burnt or melted.

And here with the hood



I'm very happy for my first Exocage.

Hello,

I have tried times on the wheel houses,
following the example of Money Pit 2.

that was the actual state of the Ford
and still no test drive.
Complete now the tires on it, 2.2er Rock Lizzard.

The cardan shaft to the intermediate bearing.

He seems to be easy to maintain,
has just a big flap.

And that is my problem with the springs.

Have the preload completely used momentarily,
but I do not know if I have the same after the test ride,
but I can not relax much less.

Test drive more or less done with success.
I am really successful,
had only one damage after 40 minutes,
a broken gearbox mounting plate,
but that was a bad design.

my ranger still had some weight missed on the front axle,
now on every wheel

Axle loads now look like without battery.
Front:

Rear:

Hello,

few headlights are produced in a wedge shape so they do not interfere with the wheels.


Of course, both were built parallel.
It come in four white LED's and an orange LED.
the first fitting of the front slit eyes, the driver's side.


The Ford slowly gets a face.

after the kitchen service I times the demarcation to the blinkers glued,
he must have everything, because I think these monsters should also take with you on the road.

so only once done something to have the light only where it should be,
forward and not backward through the housing,
from behind a rich layer of black matt.

just the first four LEDs soldered and installed,
but not yet wired.

Hello,

both headlights are now fully equipped with LEDs,
also the turn signals have got their orange LEDs.

Both headlights get their glasses from 0.5 mm makrolon.

It's look likes Lexan.

It is glued with this adhesive by pattex.

the Pattex keeps what he promises.

The first light test with glasses and at 4x12000 mcd,
Driving and high beam together.

have mounted the headlights.
The perspective deceives a bit,
they look past the bracket.



The ranger was allowed to go outside
and play in the dirt.




A little Video

And here the engine is burned me.
https://youtu.be/9BjU5CC2AXc
