A little more work done on this thing. Got it all sanded down and some fresh clear on it. I left out the trash this time, but a nice coat of orange peel took its place, gotta love the learning curve. The big update, well atleast the pictures are for the front suspension. I've got the base for the passenger side upper A-Arm done. I modeled a Detriot Speed and Engineering unit. The frame is different size brass tubing soldered together. The finer details will be done with styrene. I did this by first bending the outer bars, then it was all tacked to the kit a-arm to keep the proper placement. Then everything was soldered together. It ruins the kit part, but makes for a great template!

Thanks. Still needs quite a bit of work. I need to re-stock my styrene stash before this makes much more progress. Oh and my tools need some upgrades. Now if I could only find a willing machinist to help me out.

Well this thing keeps giving me fits, I wonder if I'll ever finish it. I finally got some kind of mold for the tread, got a couple of blocks cast, and well the resin I have isn't flexible enough to allow it to form around the tire. If I keep starting over, I will never finish any parts. So instead of Toyo Proxes 4 tires. They are now going to be BFGoodrich TA/KD's. The tread blocks are all square. Careful measurement and I can use styrene instead of casting them. I've got to wait a bit to re-stock my styrene supply, or Maybe I'll cut some strips from the sheet I have. Who knows. Thanks for keeping up with this and the words of encouragement. Ah the world of scratch building parts.

You know what though...keep all the prototypes and start a 1/12 aftermarket to recoup costs, time and headaches. Who knows all this hard work and frustration could pay off 10 fold in the end. Don't let the set backs stop you. You're further along on your plastic than I am on any of the 10 diecast projects I keep saying I'll build.

Thanks for the words of encouragement. I never thought I would be working on this thing long enough to eclipse 4 years. I've spent some time today working on the rear end, hopefully achieving a somewhat completed sub assembly. Its going to be stock looking, the 4 link brackets, with the addition of some machined aluminum bolts on the diff cover. This is just the housing, I've got additional plans for the axles, which I can't really carry out until I have the wheels completed

A little update. You can go back through and see how the rear end housing was modified and the additions that were made. I drilled holes where the diff cover bolts were, then sanded them all flush. After that was done, I painted the housing with duplicolor primer then followed with some wal mart gloss black. After the paint cured, I then added the machined bolts with a bit of super glue. Hopefully the detail shows up in the pictures. I'm going to call this completed sub assembly number 1!!!
