    Shake & Bake dovetailed cheveh

    So I got a body from Rik the other day..it was in a bit of rough shape. After I got all the peices apart I began the bodywork. Shoulda taken pics before I started but that's ok. This is what I'm working with




    The interior is pretty rough, I may scrap all but the dash and make the rest myself.

    The magnet on the hood is a part of my latch system. Tho the magnet on the outside won't be there anymore.

    That little round metal peice is actually a earth magnet cylinder I managed to get in there. This will hold the hood shut flush.

    The chassis came from Jason hence the name.


    Started a bed


    And I redid the rear fenders and got a more flush fit.



    More to come.

The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." -Thomas Jefferson

    Gonna have to redo the interior but I can still use the dash and work around it. No drop bed, at least not at this time.

    Got the links done, went with bent links in the rear and it really sucked the axle in. But that's getting fixed next anyway. I also got the mock up of my mounting system. The bed will eventually get redone with thicker styrene but when I do that I'm going to redo the dovetail because the lines are off. Pictures

    Hinged yo


    Really pulled that axle in, the drive shaft angles are off as well.
