    Kreepers Recovery Class 3 build.

    So as most of u know, I have a bully comp crawler from suby.. I haven't even touched it other than doing some skins. From visiting rausch comps, i got the scale bug. I have been thinking of a build to do, while i'm in my recovery stages.

    I got a body from rik, Thanks... hi5. Its been sitting here, seems like forever. Now that i can walk and stand i decided to try my hand at building one of these. So i started off thinking class 2, and now have made my decision for a class 3. Within that decision, seems like i have a little more options to what i want than what the rules say i have to be at with a class 2.

    So as usual i cut my own chassis, Its basically a x-trail chassis, just from a cutting board:


    Then in the midst i was gonna do the class 2 with the stock bed:




    Now that body and bed are just sitting there, trying to figure out if this is what i wanted:



    I had then posted a ? about a honcho being class 2, and i seen the bed and figured out how it was classified. So i decided to not run my stock bed but to run a tubular back end:




    So last night i started to figure out how i was gonna mount the tube back end to my chassis, and measure where it needs to be so my cab meets up with my wheelwells:


    Now in the pics the wb looks off, but the rear is just in a hanging position:


    Now with the cab in place:


    This is as far as i got, i have to make some links uppers and lowers, and get the truck sitting on it's own. Till then, Thanks for reading, and looking...

    Why do I care where Waldo is?

    Wow number 4, of that many... lol. Well at least it's staying in the club. Stopped by lowes and picked up some all-thread, they carry 3 volt 3800 motors now, and have 4 bins of hobby stuff... The motors are like a stock 380. Amazing stuff, never thought lowes would carry a motor. So i will end up making some links tonight, and i will get more pics up for u guys...

    I can't wait till i can get on the rocks, let alone one of my rigs..

    Lowes has the hobby stuff, in the parts and hardware aisle... They have all those bins with screws and bolts and misc. They are labeled Hobby.... They have stickers on them from like the erector sets... They have aluminum and brass tubing, to go over all thread, round or square. They have motors, battery holders like for a rx pack, knife switches, they have alot of stuff..

    Wow, so i have a piece of epa history on my hands, hmm might have to put it up on the shelf, and leave it there. Might be worth something in the near future.
