    So, whilst driving back from the G6 I was mulling over this build and decided I didn’t like the TRX-4 axles under this. I realised it need a more scale looking axle. Fortunately I had my set of Mad Moose Portals under the TFL bronco, and having already destroyed the rear casing once I choose to remove them from the Bronco and fit them to this, The TRX axles have ended up under the Bronco 🙂

    Today I set about completing the rear drive line and suspension, I may need to tweek the spring rates slightly once all the scale tat is installed in the camper but as of this moment the rear can support it’s own weight and there is a propshaft from the axle to the transfer case.

    With the rear done I have now started on the front.

    I am hoping to get the front finished this week and then I can get the motor and gear box installed.

    More as it happens,

    Thanks for looking.

    They definitely suit the quality of this build. And the storage panels will happily carry the Mad Moose bits when they fall off 🙊

    Yeah, definitely more in keeping with the theme, and hopefully won’t get broken as this won’t be getting driven hard.

    So Sunday afternoon update.

    We have a roller.

    I have chosen to go for a 1 link and panhard on the front as I haven’t done one before. Seems to work ok so far, I don want to add a brace to it before I paint it. Also made some custom front shock towers.

    Oh go on then.

    So that was Saturdays progress,

    Today I have made a front bumper and started (in between the rain showers) putting some paint on the body.

    Not totally sure what colour to actually paint the body, the bonnet will be staying matt black. might go for red as I haven’t ever done a red rig.

    More soon.
