    I have so many stupid builds on the go and some will hopefully debut at the upcoming Recon G6

    Im currently in Facebook Jail for not wanting to connect with old girlfriends and former classmates. I’m putting this time to great use by building stuff.

    If any of you follow my Instagram sketchy pics pop up from time to time of some of the stuff I build.

    I have the Jeep fever and theres more Jeeps to follow but for now.

    A few evenings later and it looked like this.

    As I’m going 2.2 on this as a class 3 build I didn’t want it looking stock so I’m going for the pinched in look.

    Rat rods have been my thing for years so Rolling coal it is with a 6BT

    Where’s all the emojis gone? This thread could be full of them.

    Class 3 Wraiths are so last season and Parker doesn’t like training wheels.

    <p style=”text-align: center;”>Thanks guys, can’t find the quote button.</p>
    More coming soon, battery placement is the bane of my existence at the moment but when I figure that out I’ll be able to update with some crazy details.

    Nice start Mark. The quote button should be in the top right of a post

    I keep thinking I need to do a 2.2 build, may be I will modify Mogenstien to take 2.2’s.

    Ha ha found it thanks. Not a fan of class 3  but I feel the need to fail there as well.

    Right so after contracting the plague I’m now a slimmer version of my former self and have done almost nothing since the last update. Today I made it run (me assembling a pile of bits into a runner never goes well). I’ve started the paint process but have yet to pick a final colour and I’m chipping away at the details.

    I’ve upgraded from blue tape on the turbo to chrome tape.

    And this is where it sits now.

    Coming along nicely, And colours, it’s hard to think of something that hasn’t already been done but I kinda like the off white weathered Jeep that ran in the Ultimate Adventure a few years back.

    Great build and sweet looking truck so far, I am digging that rusty red colour you have on it so far…

    That looks proper evil, like it should be in one of those films like Duel, Killdozer or Maximum Overdrive where inanimate objects come to life and inexplicably start killing people.. Or have I just had too much caffeine this morn. Looks great.

    Yeah , thought about building that one but the metalwork put me off.

    Thanks, rusty red will be showing through.

    Thanks, evil yes. I have a future vid to shoot when I get better at vids for this.

    Apologies for the delay in updating but nothing exciting has happened. Today I found time to paint some of the parts. The cab is still in need of styrene work and the colour is not quite where I want it but once its ruined it’ll be fine.
