I got the interior painted up and put together a quick rear cover that should still allow the body posts to pass through. Passable? Perhaps.

I had some other drivers in mind, but the Tamiya guy fits so well and I had one in the parts bin, so...

I was originally going to name this fella Theodore (you could call him Teddy). Then my wife noticed that the primed figure has a striking resemblance to Alan Alda. I couldn't argue. Alan it is.

Meet Mr. Alan Man, owner of a pretty sweet restomod '73 Bronco...

Inner wheel well time! $2 of fun, here...

I also lengthened the front links by about 3.5mm to reduce some body rub. I used some plastic nuts from a leftover Axial parts tree...

Lengthening the front links had the front shocks laying down to much, so I flipped the front shock towers. The shocks are pretty much dead vertical now. That was lucky!

All wired up and ready to move under it's own power. A couple of quick laps up and down the hall confirmed that things are working as expected. Almost ready to get dirty!

Now the good stuff...

GCM Mini-Mags!
RC4WD Goodyear Wrangler MT/Rs!
Locked Up scale hardware!
SSD scale hubs!
Spending more money on wheels and tires than I did on the rest of the rig!
Not caring because it's totally worth it just look at them so purty!

Enough, already. I still need to figure out a rear bumper (not a fan of the one molded into the body, so I chopped it off) and the reverse lights burned out after the first test runs up and down the hallway. I'll deal with those issues later. I want to drive!

We had a long stretch of rain. I was stuck inside for a bit. I have some pictures of this thing on the kitchen table, but that's not what you want to see. Right? Maybe? I dunno. Once the skies cleared a bit I took the baby Bronco out into the yard for some glamour shots before it gets all scratched up. These are those photos...

That looks fantastic! I'm having a hard time deciding whether to go with the Tamiya Bronco body or the MST Jimny.

Woo! This makes me feel slightly less bad about how much they cost me.

Thanks! Like I mentioned before, I originally picked up the kit for another project with no intention of using the body. The Bronco just spoke to me, though. I had to build it. I really like that Jimny, too. If I could pick up a chassis kit and body for the same price I paid for the Bronco I'd do it in a heartbeat.

I decided to throw some more challenging terrain at Alan and Bucky because that sort of thing makes me happy. I'm still finding the limits with this tiny truck, but I've been impressed with its performance so far.
