X3 on the bruiser chassis!.....yeah I know, unfortunatly when I started this thing back in '98 it was what I had and all the internals were made to fit it

I decided to run with it when I came back to finish it off as changing it at this late stage is alot more work. But don't worry tho, the front end of the chassis will recieve a radical face lift.....I haven't started on the chassis mods yet hopefully when I've finished you won't know what chassis it is unless I roll it

As for thingy's... Wot you said airwolf, and the number plates, tax disc, seats, dash, rear bumper, tow hitch, "D" rings, ariels, bonnet catches, sliding front windows, window seals, chassis rebuild, rear shocks, drive flanges, functional diffs, spare wheel carrier and probably some stuff I have't remembered. Yeah done by Friday. But which Friday remains to be seen

traducción del español al inglésI'm really happy, if the matter "Yota" is up I stay calm.
I have more confidence in your hands in mine, just follow your footsteps!
The truth is that dreaded time of the cut, now I will walk it safe.
My Future "series" will be the scale of my Defender, 1 / 9 (make a cute couple) and therefore only have to cut a few mm.
The front axle not to show the displacement of the "pumpkin" and you may even feel good.
In the back and make me wonder. It would have to look hard to notice, but I want to look good and it may be better to work twice.

They make a lovely couple, three shall be the center of attention in meetings.
Greetings.

A final annoyance, I have some pictures of the chassis 109 of Santana, but they are good, they are just drawings. Are you close to any decent level of the chassis?
No longer be put in the box "google" to find factory or similar plans.

Some of you may be interested to know that I have now done the axle "chop"

If not this is for Padre first tho, a couple of FLEX shots!!





O.K so it's not amazing flex but it is quite scale so works for me....onto the axle chop. This may not be the best way, it's just how I did it

After some thinking (several minutes at least ) and some measuring, I set about with a hacksaw.

This shows it supported on what will be the inner collars and the segments that were removed.


Yes I did chop out parts that hold the two halves together, but I had a plan! an outer collar!

Parts filed down to accept the collar.


Filing the ends was more tricky than the middle section, so this is how I held it together.


Outer collars made and tested for overall width on the truck.


Bonded together with JB Weld, outer collars first, then drifted the inner collars into place.


Cleaned up and ready for paint, I also ran a drill through the axle shaft to remove any excess JB and checked that the internals ran smoothly.


Primer first then a coat of red like the 1:1's (yeah, does look more orange in the pic)


I'm sure some of you are probably wondering how I got the internals in given the way I reconnected it all.....well I didn't I just did this instead...


Widened the hole at the back, now I can remove the spur gear without the need to split the axle casing

The internals are not done yet tho, I'm waiting until I sort out a functional diff. I have been told you can't do this with a yota axle but I'm not one for being put off by mere trifles like "can't" so I'm gonna do it anyway and yes I do have a plan

Now that I've got both axles a good width and test fitted, I can get cracking on striping/mod'ing/rebuilding the chassis. Well it makes a nice change from doing the body anyway (which still needs a fair bit of work)!

Unbedamnlievable. That is scale craftsmanship at its best. I believe you DO have a special talent. VERY VERY nice work.

Cheers matey. Painting to match the 1:1, the front IS red (and rust!) rear is black with a white diff cover (and rust of course ).

This looks great, may be the solution.
I will wait to see how it worked under the LR.
Collars attached with glue, hold out the work ¿?.
I thought to strengthen the union with a screw or pin miniature, but hold up well, a working less!.
My LR series will not be made ​​for major efforts, only rides a motorized model any more, and the glue may be sufficient.
Greetings.
Oops ... you got those pictures of the chassis of 109?
I think I saw on this topic, but can not find.
