A mag rack I didn’t know about until I caught a corner of it in a photo I had on file. Didn’t have the full shot to go on, but I couldn’t pass up the chance to make a tiny magazine to go on it.

I was a litte nervous cutting the wall out….





Figured what the hell....

If you havent got a chance to check out an overland journal, there's endless ideas for scalers. They are $10 an issue, damn rich man magizines. Working on the Car Action to go on there too.

New Roof with more lights, 3 long “florescent” lights, 1 round. It couldn’t be just one light easy in the earth roamer but I’m glad I took the time and made another. I decided to make the roof and paint it before mounting it to the foam to avoid any foam melting from the spray paint.




Tube Light

A few updates:
I found some solar panels that should work at Home Depot. They were $20 a piece but it came with all the stuff I should need to wire it up for use. I owe someone a custom bumper set or what? Thanks again RockedUp Ricky for the tip!













Started on some windows, looking to seal up the top soon.



That is where I'm at to this point. This build thread is lucky, you get to see almost 12months of work in one shot... I'm taking so long due to working OT for so long, but that was cut back so I've been working on it almost every night lately. Hope to get the inside wired up so I can seal up the top and start shaping as soon as my wire and connectors come in.

The chassis is pretty much a roller at this point. Going to order up the guts soon so I can play with it. It needs 4 servos, 1-steering, 1-shifting, 2-winches.
I'm looking at either the Novak Crawler or the FXR, being a scaler I can get away with the Novak I think, but everything on this build screams overkill, so might as well hit the FXR.
Probably use Airtronics MG/Hi-Torq 200oz servos...
I need close to 7 channels I think... Driving lights, hi-beams. Int. lights, Front winch/rear winch, throttle, steering, shifting... It should be interesting wiring it all up. Going to use 10.8V, solar charged RX pack to run the lights and all.

Thanks bro! I've put off alot of other builds and projects until this one is done! I want to do an adventure trailer, and second body/bed on this chassis for hardcore trail action. The ER cab will see the trail, but it will be pampered ride.
