    Been waiting for a while to put this one in here, but after seeing it in the flesh today (and getting it dirty) I felt it was time to move it ::thumpsup::

    Well I didn’t the no I was going to be able to make the G6/ Nationals this weekend but it now looks like I can!

    Unfortunately in the two years since I finished building the jeep it has taken some punishment! It’s on its second winch since the build which has now packed up, it has lost a fender, the tailgate it cracked, the rear arch is cracked, the body below the door is cracked and the screen and frame are destroyed!

    So it looks like I have my work cut out for me over the next five evenings … Better get cracking with the resin and fibreglass tape!

    Body repairs are underway, I’ve reduced a screen surround off a jeep I had in the bone yard, I’ve made some repairs to the cracks, done a bit of priming and the body is hanging in the garage drying!

    On to the winch, I decided as I had two broken cappu winches and two spare RC4WD motors I might as well try and combine all four

    Take two broken winches

    Drill one of the sides of the winch wh Ch hold the motor to match the other (left needs to be drilled)

    Add a bit of paint now they match …

    Now the spool needs to be drilled out to 3mm all the way trough and another hole drilled to take the winch line (the grub screw for the winch line is used to hold the second motor shaft) the right hand is after and the left is before.

    A dry run of the build up

    And the new motors ready to go in!

    I’ve got to try and make a quick decision on colour … I’m thinking either white, red or orange again, what does everyone think??

    I vote orange again, maybe a different shade just so it’s a bit different again, but I love the look of it in orange, because there isn’t huge amounts of it, just the body and the rest is ‘raw’
    Definitely one of the nicest builds around.

    OHO, thanks, really appreciate the compliment! I called my local halfords and unfortunately no orange paint in stock! Screw fix had some Matt white plasti-kote so I decided to give that a go … I think I prefer the orange but it will be battered and bruised again after the weekend so it might end up orange again soon!

    Mark … Thanks for reminding me about that … It almost ended up red!

    I retract my last statement and vote white lol.
    Man that looks so clean and tidy!
    Great choice on colour.
