and you finish that then we switch
I have something like that.


If I can find another jeep like this I'll give it a go. It comes with a longer bed, so it's perfect for this kind of build. I'll cross over to the bigger style living area in back due to it size. 18" wheel base. This one here is down to 15.5. I'm offering a 100.00 for the body if anyone has one.

HAHAHA! I'll never share!

No worries guys, build is ending shortly. Had to hold off updates for magizines, then the step-by-step build will be posted all the way to the end from these last updates.

Teaser vids, pics, posted soon!

The final process, I working on is making the custom clear and translucent red lens covers... I think people are going to like to know how to make little plastic parts like that with ease.!

Don't give up on me, 2 shop moves, job change, nitro racing season and making Bodies over the last few months... I'll side track my own thread to show some pics of that project. Custom Ducted B4 Body .040 thick. I started this to do scaler bodies, but had to learn tooling before doing them.



Stock left, custom right


I'm planning on making any requested model that isn't already made, and maybe a few that are just fix them. (New FJ, Xterra, FJ40, etc etc) I also have promission from Earth Roamer to remake the ER cab. (it would have to be a 3 part cab..) So that's were I'm at... Not dead, never quit!

btw: I side tracked these two projects together because I need the vacuum forming and vacuum chamber to finish some molds for the lens covers, flares, etc...

Jeep Scambler.. I'll take a look at it... I know a couple people asked for an Scout/International too so that would fit into the lineup nicely.

CarAction got the 1st spot in line, then XRC... but I have to finish it first.

I spent hours looking at the pics, then looking at the model... back and forth. Tried to get everything in there.
