    TT build take 4

    My fourth tough truck attempt. (the first three just didn't do it for me)

    Custom chassis/tube
    Ax-10 axles
    WK trans
    Blackfoot cab (or at least it resembles one now)
    110 MM dual rate RC4WD shocks (long suckers)
    1.9 Rok Lox

    The start - brazed the shock hoops on before I cut the rails to make sure everything lines up



    The donor body


    An hour later and I have this to work with

    The back is going to be all metal, not sure what I want but I will start throwing metal at it shortly.

    Stay tuned (4 times the charm, let's see if this truck persuades me to keep it?)
    Yes, I have at least three other builds under way and I have to fix my 2.2, but that is part of the fun, if I get bored of one I jump to the other.

    Why do I care where Waldo is?

    Just a couple hours and I have a little more progress

    Figured I would be a little creative with the cab roll cage straight lines are too easy... The Blackfoot body went under the knife also.





    Stay tuned for more!!

    Just a little more hacking/tearing/melting/bending....
    Still plenty more to do, no plan just throw parts at it until I like it











    This think is going to have some weight to it after I am done with my metal work
    I almost feel sorry for this poor Blackfoot body, it has been Quirked!!

    Thanks

    I don't think I have built a rig that hasn't frustrated me almost to the point of tossing it out the window. I just set it aside and work on another build until I can think clearly, that is why I have three builds going on right now. With another couple in parts to pass the time, in case I need a break from the custom build/fab work.

    Just a little more done







    Plenty more to do yet with link placement and length, but it rolls more or less on its own
