Thanks, Noobsk8r!

The hood is now tilting and next I'll need to figure out how to hold it down. Magnets maybe.

So awesome it makes me a Mad Dog…'cause it's not mine!



I do have a question about that wire steering. Is it still effective when the suspension is compressed, or does it go goofy at all when it's articulated? Or am I overthinking it? (Always probable.)

Thanks guys!

Ragnarok, I haven't noticed any odd behavior when fiddling with the suspension. But I think that in the end, most suspension travel comes from the tires. The leaf springs are so hard thay they don't really bend at all.

I have now redone the rollcage in 4x1mm brass tubing. I didn't like the plastic version. There's also magnets holding the bonnet and roof down. Lightbar is on the roof but no led's yet. I need to tinker with their wires to make it look more tidy.

Steering will be redone with smaller diameter cables once I get the new parts. Now this thing waits for warmer weather to start painting.

This is turning out phenomenal...

Glad to see an update on it again.
Warmer weather needed for sure.
I still think this is one of the best builds using the Blazer body.
The vision was perfect and tons of cool handy workings.


Awesome Build !!!!

This thing is insane! Amazing work. I do have to ask. Is there a build on the Lunchbox somewhere? I couldn't find one here.

Chassis and the dummy engine are painted and steering cables modified again, this time thinner tubings.

There's something behind the scenes. I have painted and clear coated the body. Just need to find some time to level sand it and then polishing. I also have the decals done but not yet printed.
