Hi,

the body is painted. I've only to stick some more decals and made my own light-buckets and paint the Proline interrior.
The most probleme is that the RC4WD rims are unusable on Axial axles.
They have an enormous offset. The weels are 20 mm outside the body on both side.


The offset:


On both side:


I tried with 1,55" wheels:


The offset is smallers than with the Wrangler wheels:


And then with the wheels I wished to use at first (SDI)


The offset:




I don't really know what to do.
- keep the level-3 chassis and use SDI wheels (or similar).
- place the body on a CC-01 with the RC4WD wheels.
- Start the project again on T-rex 44 axles.

Any idea?

I have the same wheels and I can't use them on k44 axles because of huge offset. They fit the Yj body perfect with trex 44s, you can compare the xj and yj...

I tried with TLT's and you don't see any change with the axials.
They're "only" 21mm narrow. I need something very smaller like T-rex 44 axles.

I would run the T-Rex axles. Those wheels are too cool to pass up.
They really complete the look.

re,

Good news today

The wheel are not a problem anymore. They're sold!

The body is on 90% finished,; I'm happy!
I don't stick the gold stripes. I'm not sure I'll do a Limited one without the alloy wheels.
I'm made some light-buckets. I'm waiting for some LEDs.
The Proline interrior is painted. I have to paint the seats also.
I need a figure driver (a repro frome the bruiser one will be cool).

The picts:

Hi,

some little updates

Finally, I'd bought some buckets from the YJ Tamiya:

I only have to glue them

I work more on the interrior:
- driver
- diving accessories
- fifth wheel




For the fifth wheel, I cut the one from the Tamiya YJ


I wish to close it with plasticard and try to render it like the real one with this tutorial.


TODO list:
- paint the seats
- screw the accessories
- better light buckets for rear-end

Tonight I design some brand new light buckets for the rear-end :




From top to bottom :
- drive / brake in 5mm
- fog-light in 3mm
- blinker in 3mm
- backward drive in 3mm

I let make a pair (Left & Right).
If it looks good I'll give you a link to order them.[/quote]
