    Yes sir.. I love that stuff!

    I'll be using a good bit of it, sooner then later..

    A little work today.. The inside of the tool box had them axle holders.. Well, I won't be using them and the holder's took up too much space! Dremel time!



    Then a quick cut out..



    Then paint.. Looks like #&@%



    Better sand and repaint..



    That's better! Now let's throw some junk in it!
    The mail showed up with, just, one more piece..



    Coming along nicely..

    Thanks John! Maybe this update will help keep all this weight of the junk, from sitting the chassis on the axle's... Lol

    Moving into suspension..
    The rear started out like this..

    Then a little of this...

    I've been building and running the scx shocks on my comp rigs for a couple years now..
    I ditch the black spacer between the o-rings and add a 3rd o-ring.. Then I green slime them before spinning the cap back on.. Takes care of the leaking, that the scx shocks are known for..
    Then some mrc silver springs, jeepindoug spring cups, some old school shock collars (notch eight designs, maybe even), and some 30wt shock oil.. Machined pistons are in the mail.

    I'm liking it already... Flex's Way smoother! Has a better ride height and does a good bit less bouncing...

    Now to take care of the front shocks..

    I cut the shock mounting tabs off, to do the steering.. So now what!?
    Well, with knowledge of shock and link collars for a mrc and parts I've seen Wes Made, make.. I grabbed a slab of "delrin" I have.(it's a dollar store cutting board) haha..
    A couple renditions later.. Pic of the last couple steps..

    The nuts are actual torque'd into the shock mount's. (Hopefully to stay)..
    Then mounted them to the leafs..


    The shocks kinda leaned in towards the pumpkin, sooooo....


    Now the front cycling smoothly as well!
    Waiting for more o-rings and the machined pistons to get here, so the fronts just hanging out for now..

    I'll pull the shock mount's for paint when I pull the shocks for rebuild.

    My next move was the servo horn..

    Pulled the red for the black replacement

    The screw head from the drag link was Killing my pumpkin!
    So I swapped the 2 out.. The black gives even more clearance then the pic shows, cause it sits deeper on the output spline's..
    All bottomed out(or sitting on the leafs fully), without shock springs, and still clears!

    Perfect!


    Ok, tech over.. Lol..
    I'm not sure I'm fond of the mirror's..


    They don't look bad in the pics.. But... in person, they look like costume jewelry! IMO..

    I guess it's more so from the view of looking at the side of the truck.. T-bone view..

    That's all for today..

    More goodies, update!



    Started sorting out items..

    The high lift jack fitting perfectly under the tool box, it takes up zero room! With the gas can in place, the high lift jack can Not come out from under there.. Saaweeet! One less thing to lose if she tips over or rolls!
    Bonus: the key fob fits in the to box for storage and trail days..



    Onto tech..
    With the shock parts coming in, I got to work..
    I knew the front socks where exactly where I wanted them, creating a natural bump stop right before the tire got to the wheel well..
    So I drilled out the center of the spring cup, right before breaking thru the back..
    This is compared to the rear cup.

    It still added a little limiting, but we all know, it doesn't work the same, on the bench, as under power and on the trail..


    Max flex on bench.

    The rear tire stops when is rubbing the wheel well.. Bump stood to come.. Don't want to rub that sexy paint off! Lmao...

    I'm enjoying everything about this build and the ride height is perfect! IMO..

    The ground clearance is awesome!


    Let's get her out driving!




    A little video is downloading.. (you might have to watch it on RCC, if I can't post it here?)

    Thanks Wes! I think they ended up working out perfect.. They don't limit steering or suspension cycle and they made the shocks fit perfect, from bump stops to full extension!

    Picked up some Rc4wd front wheel wells and got to work..

    First thing I had to do, after screwing them to the chassis, was get holes dremeled out for the shocks to fit thru. As I have scx front shock hoops..



    I'm pretty happy about it, at this point..
    Then lots of little cuts to get the fit I wanted..

    And still more as I went..


    Then I saw one of these in the cupboard..

    Time for more dremeling!!!
    After cutting the outer ring off, I started work on fitment..


    A $h!t load of small dremeling later!

    It fits "perfectly" between the bed and chassis rail.. (Could it be better, sure! Does it need to be, nope! That's what dirt's for! )

    Fronts got spray on bed liner, then a shot of flat black. Rears just got flat black.
    It's all back together, but that will be covered in a update tomm.. Lol..

    I never did make the comp this past weekend.. :'( snow was in the forecast and work called on me. Dam snow!

    I'm digging the fronts!



    For the rear, I mounted them and Amazing goop'd them in (some what) last night..


    Today, I finished filling them in and sealing them off..

    Taped them off and painted..

    Final product.. (Still a little shiny/not dry)
