O it will have the sensors! I went to the Kraft store the other day but all the clear beads had holes all the way through them I need to find clear bbs and I will pin vise them myself and add the wire. I was even going to cut up soda cans for the wings but they actually didn't do that until much later in the movie. By that point the Jeep j had already been rubber side up.

Dude that's awesome

Still waiting on my parts for the interior so I decided to get some of the metal work done.

started with finishing up the rear bumper and I also cut the Dorothy out of some PVC pipe.



roll bar


You can see the fuel filler I cut in too



Front brush guard


I drilled and tapped the front bumper and the body so the screws in the front are now was secures the front of the body. No body pins on this builds







Going to start some more work on it now, stay tuned

-Mike

Christmas came early when I got home from my 3-11 tour last night and found a package from Peppe/rccrawlerit.

1st off, Peppe is probably one of the best vendors I have dealt with in a long time. He is extremely speedy with his pm's and goes out of his way to solve any and all issues. I had ordered my parts before thanks giving and when they didn't show last week and there was still no update on the tracking I sent Peppe a pm. He told me he would go to FedEx 1st thing monday and see what the issue was. Apparently they dropped the ball and never sent it so he took it to UPS and had it aired mailed to me which somehow showed up to my house in the same day

Anyways I tore into the package and parts are nothing short of awesome! I even pulled my 1.5 Sammy out of the show case and started installing his leafs.

I was also hooked up with some freebies too







Seats for my j10


Radio set


Pedals


Jeep keys! Got some yota ones too


Not sure what I am using these for yet but I had to have them.


When $$$ permits I'll be ordering a lot more parts
