    Hi there,

    I guess, I’m not the only Guy who have more then one Rigs on the Road. So, in this Thread I will show my new Rigs, my old Rigs and their often rather minimal changes or improvements.
    I Hope, you enjoy this potpourri.

    ——
    Starting with a “slight” modificated Slash 4×4, two Years ago. Bored with all the plastic and lexan, I’ve tried a little more steamish rig.




    Drive-Train and Suspension from the Origin. Brazed Steel-Tube-Frame with lot of copper and other stuff. (Notice the about 35 year old ship propeller as sparewheel-holder. true to the motto “you should not throw anything away” 🙂 )

    Build at my start on metal-handling and before my owning of a lathe and a mill, the finish is rather rustic.

    Today it is still hanging on the Wall and waiting to get refurbished.

    Regards

    Ralf

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>That’s a fascinating take on a Slash. I love the steam punk look.</p>
