Yesterday I was trying to weld the music wire to the cage for the fabric roof support

Problems with the heat affected zone being brittle meant any time it gets bumped the welds break.
That's no good.
So today I popped off the wire, did a little grinding and welded nuts to the cage

This let me use two pieces of music wire to make the loop without any brittle spots


I also got some pre-wired 10mm LED's in red and white, but I didn't realize they were 12mm tall.
No biggie, chucked them up in the lathe and turned them down.


Not the original square lights, but they'll work ok

Thanks!
Well there were no easy ways around it. So I cut the grill off to get to the servo so I could make mounts.
I cut and bent some sheet metal, then welded some M3 nuts to it


After getting both sides done I bolted the servo on


I ended up welding the servo mounts in place while bolted to the servo then hosing them with my squirt bottle to keep from burning the servo.

Next I welded bolts to the end of the frame pieces and drilled holes in the grill to bolt it back on so I can get to the servo in the future.

Ok, so I got some shifters made, put in some carpet and got a dash cut out but not installed

I also masked off everything and gave the cage a fresh coat of black.
Then I got my lights wired up.


I drug it home and ran it around a bit. She wheels pretty good for a 10.5 lb rig.

Got my dash and wheel in a week ago, and got to run a full pack through it yesterday








Elvis brought over his CrossRC military for its maiden voyage too.

And even better, I replaced the 10ish kgcm servo and 3/4" plastic horn with a 15kgcm servo and 1" aluminum horn so now it even steers!
