    Got some more work done today. Still trying to prep for motorama.

    Captain America decided to take over the reigns as driver. Got him a seatbelt to keep him in. Then shoved the interior where it belongs...it did not fit easily but I made it work. Last update was puttin at fire extinguisher in the back of the cab...hopefully it is never needed.

    Next problem is getting this to fit on the chassis. the bottom of the interior is hitting the spur. I am going to have to do some cutting to make it all fit together. That is going to be tomorrow's project.

    I had off work today so in honor of President's Day, I decided to do some more work on Captain America's Rig. Took a hacksaw, dremel, some scissors, an exacto knife and any other cutting instrument you can think of to the interior to get the body to fit fully down on the chassis. It doesn't look the best but it is what it is for now. Have to say I am happy with where it go today with it being my first interior. More work will be going into that later. Also got the windshield wipers on and the mirrors. The mirrors need more work to get them straight but taking a break for now. Here is how she sits.

    Thanks Wes.

    And John, We should have plenty of time to get that done. That won't take long at all. Once we get all that back in, then I am going to put the cap back on the bed and she will be ready to roll.

    I decided after Motorama to not clean the mud off of anything. Well that has now forced me to rebuild the axles. New bearings, new grease, and new universals. Also a new 27t motor. Visited two local hobby shops and was surprised at how much they had in the crawling section.

    First place was Extreme RC Hobbies down near the buck. They had a whole wall of crawlers and parts. Lots of RC4WD. Even had a 43/13 underdrive gear in stock I couldn't find anywhere online.

    Second place was Pit Stop Hobbies in Mt. Joy. Got the stock 27t motor for less than $15 there. Surprised by prices at both places to be honest.

    axles all rebuilt. . And found out the electronics problem I had at motorama was not actually the motor. Just one of the motor wires. Was fumbling around with it today and the red wire just fell off in my hand. Guess that was my problem. All fixed and ready to go. Now I have a spare motor just in case I have another problem at a comp.

    I got into the rebuilding mode and couldn't slow down...and completely forgot to take pics.
    A new build will be starting soon and I will be sure to have pics of that!
