    Camper shell everything

    72BD3183-D680-400E-838D-5F4BC792465B

    Power wagon because comp.

    Camper shell because stupid.
    This one needs to be a bit sporty and capable. No kitchen sink, just a mattress and a light weight one at that.

    Breakdown on the trail and sleep if you can’t fix it. Not like the others who have to tow their junk home. I’m a genius.

    This one’s for the single fella as there’s not a lot of space.

    I’ve even pinched the back for clearance. Plenty of reinforcements here.

    So I’ve comp cut the rear in a diagonal fashion

    No tippy uppy.

    More soon as I’ve less than a month to get it ready to ruin.

    Thanks, gotta stand out.
    The chassis is done, Panhard bar was fun.
    Camper is done, just the details to add. Hopefully it’ll get painted in the next few days.

    I realised I need a bumper. I don’t have time to get one ordered so a temporary one in the making.

    38537066-47BC-410D-ABE5-0B0606B77BCE
    B&Q right angle bracket with some SCX10II short links.
    Not ideal but it might work.

    Just needs some larger screws to add the other two.

    Cool build, been following it on Instagram. I like the bumper 👍

    Thanks, bumper was an unexpected success and super cheap.
    It’s essentially done, I don’t have time to test before Saturday but it crawled around the house without issue tonight.
    I will try and get some pics outside before it falls over but for now I have these.

    I’ve put it away so many times since Christmas as I didn’t like the way it sat but I’m very happy with how it sits.
    It wouldn’t be me without some humour so I stitched it back together

    Gotta be slim to get inside and because Halloween is upon us.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>How did it perform at the nationals mark? Good to meet you but never got chance to see it on the trails. Was a busy day for me trying to get it all done in one day 👍</p>

    Yeah nice to meet you. I didn’t get a run on it, I think it had a bit of stage fright. After putting the wheels on I noticed a bit of binding in the drivetrain that wasn’t there on its run in the house. My little scout already ate a gearbox after 26 gates and I didn’t have any spare.
