Pretty decent little CJ you got there. The roll bar goes well with it...seems to finish it off. I like the functional hood and windshield. Well done...

Thanks Guys , I really need to get those wheel flairs made . the Cj always looks unfinished to me without flairs . I like the crawlers with the fenders cropped , but with full fenders it looks weird with no flairs. can't wait to get the hg p407 to kit bash.

Made the proper scale size steering wheel today, of course once again no finding 1/7 scale so I fabbed it up with some coat hanger and brass plate and wrapped it with leather, still may drill some holes in the cross bars ?? , the steering shaft was also machined on the lathe to be larger and I added a signal leaver just for fun . I also did the shifters the same way my full size has it with the bulldog low military transmission (added that tell tale double bend in the shifter ). I have a dina 60 rear locked and a dana 44 heavy on the front with limited slip on my full sized so I may have to look for axles that look more like a dana . Does anyone know if you can get dana looking axles with a offset pot ,I mean with the pot set off center , I find on the real jeep it helped greatly with clearance .

Did the spring loaded hood latches , was just not possible to make them spring loaded and make them any thinner so they are a little bigger in diameter then they should be . Took a little head scratching to make them work correctly but was a lot of fun ,also machined some holes on the steering wheel , think it looks a little better . also starting to replace some of the screws with the correct countersunk screws .

My hg 407a showed up today , wow this is a nice kit ,almost a shame to bash it for my build, well I can always buy another they are so cheap . As I was hoping the frame is perfect , exactly the correct width on the front and with the rear frame extensions removed it's the perfect length . I reversed the shackles on the front axles and shortened the front lief springs to be more like the jeep . The frame had the correct cross brace in the front but it had a strange downward bend . thankfully it was fairly easy to bent the frames straight to level the front cross member . Now the center front body mount that the jeep uses can attach in the correct place . I just need to make 2 crosser's to mount the body in the factory locations and the body is mounted . The only thing I don't like is the transmission hangs way to low .I may end up using a 2 speed transfer case as it would be much more authentic . the axles look good and have the offset pumpkins . I will cut down the rear axle and use the rc4wd 12mm axle conversion so I can use some nice bead locks . it sits a little low compared to my full sized jeep but I can work on the ride height .I ordered some proline 2.2 super swampers as I like the size of the 2.2's better

used grommet's for the body mount rubbers , has 2 mounts on the rear 2 under the floor pans and one in the front center of the rad cradle ,still have to add the crosser that mounts the roll bar to the frame . I also replaced the mickey mouse driveshafts and used some nice splined slip yoke type. The hg407's that iv'e seen have the shafts wobbling all over , these replacements are nice and true and spin straight . the shafts come a bit bulky so I machine them down on the lathe to look a bit more the part .Next on to the bumpers & about marking the parts when making parts fit on a prototype ..winch. I want to make a soft top and soft doors for it once I am done the mechanics .. . Once I have the machine complete and just the way I like it I strip it down sand and paint , I like to do paint last so I don't have to worry

I guess as I am changing to 2.2 I'm officially in the wrong thread LOL. I have 39.5x14 swampers on my full sized jeep , that works out to 5.71" in 1/7 scale . the proline super swamper XL is 5.8 so it should be perfect . the sotck 407 tires you see on the jeep now work out to be 33" . way too small for any respectable mud slinger . I don't know what to do about rims at the moment any input welcome , give it to me straight guys ,I want it to look right . I'm thinking painted white steel??

converted the oddly mounted U bolts on the axles , I don't like the idea of the bolts hanging down like that so I made all new U bolts with a little jig I made ,machined up some new top plates . So much cleaner having them bolted in this way . Looks just like my full size now after I did my spring over conversion . with the big proline tires I may just have to do a body lift . I needed to do a 6" body lift and a spring over conversion to get the 39.5x14 under my full sized jeep .. when I get this little guy done I will take a picture of it on the hood of my full sized bush crawler.
