Wheel are sweet

Liking the use of cardboard aided design ("C.A.D." lol ) for the bed, gives a good idea of what you are aiming for

Thanks. Took me a while to decide on a wheel. I'm happy with my choice.

The card stock is to work with and free from work. Lol

New shoes mounted up. Need to wait till my knuckles come in to find out how much they are going to rub the tires.


Got bumpers mounted, wertymade bumper was a bolt on affair. Added some d-rings that I had on the barrage stock bumpers

Front bumper little different had to drill one hole on each side. Before I could mount the bumper I made a cms that also uses the same mounting holes as the bumper.



Made my panhard link shortened a random link I had from a lot I bought a while ago. Great fit and the small diameter just clears the truss at full compression. Maybe slip a piece of paper or two between the link and truss. if it becomes a problem I have room to raise the axle side panhard mount.



Rest of the pics are just testing flex, binding and such.






Having trouble making/finding a intermediate drive shaft. Also need to remake a slider I'm off an 1/8" so the cab isn't sitting square.

Was force to take a step back in building. My order for c-hubs and knuckles I placed got refunded after a 20 day wait and not shipping. I found another set up that are a little different but only $2 more. So when the refund goes through ill pick them up.

Trying to form a plan to tackle the flatbed.

A few options I have so far is:
1- cut out the whole thing from the aluminum sheet I have and bend it to shape.
2- cut the floor out of the 22ga steel I have and make the sides of the aluminum and bolt them together.
3- I still have that plastic toy truck which had a molded wood floor and make sides out of the aluminum and bolt them to that. That is if the floor fit the dimensions I need.

Sort have a plan for the interior and think a found a intermediate shaft the will work.

Width is about spot on, but a bit long. So a custom dash will be in order.



Seat

Punisher test fitting new seat

Seat/driver test fit in interior. Tiny bit cramped. Maybe needs shins like Cotton. Lol

2Beers,
If possible the mirrors on the give away rig what were they for? Been have a hard time locating thing close to stock. Found these aluminum but they look like auto store universal mirrors to me. I don't mind to much since its going to be driven
