***FRONT BUMPER UPDATE***

I have bitten the bullet and started on the front bumper again. This time I am using thinner 26 gauge sheet metal. I am just using straight tin snips to cut. It is/was not ideal but it got the job done.

Pics:



I used adhesive paper in my printer to print out the template. You can see it is slowly getting burned off as I weld.





All the components are welded together now as you can see in the photo above. Next to start on mounting brackets.





Not photo'd yet, I have cut out the top for the winch and also welded in the the winch tray. I have placed it onto the chassis and set the body and it all works out well.

The next part will be the bull bar, cut out for fairlead, and holes for recovery points. Not to mention lots of filing and clean-up. I hope to have this thing wrapped up by the end of the weekend. Then it will be onto the rear bumper.

Cheers,
-Steven

So, I scrapped the bumper. I was off on a measurement and when I started adding the tubing, it turned out wrong. So I started on 2.0 and it was actually going better than the original. Unfortunately I ran out of solder and I wont have my order coming in til sometime this week.

However, I did get a nice little package from Stefan at Scale Offroad.



I got 8 large lights to be used as Hella 4000 off road lights, 1 winch hook, 2 shackles to be mounted on the front bumper like the swivel D-rings on my Safari Gard bumper. I also got 8 straps (in real life I strap things onto the roof rack, not bungee) a new winch line (will try to dye it green like my 1:1) and a sweet snatch block.

A couple weeks ago I had received my roof rack LED lights from Bill at Bill's Custom RC Lighting. So, since I now have my housings, it was time to make these Hellas shine.



The housings are attached to the roof rack light tabs using a 1/8" bit of brass tube as a sleeve with a screw and nut going through. All the wiring travels under the rack to the tote on the back of the rack where it is powered by a 9V battery.







Above you can see the on/off switch for the lights

And Finally below, how they shine in the dark.



Cheers,
-Steven

I can't wait to see where you go with this.

The install on the lights is super clean, great job.

I agree with turkman, the rack is a work of art.

Thanks for the compliments fellas, I appreciate them. I do not know if I have mentioned it, but this is my first scale build and I'm enjoying it thoroughly. (Cannot say the same for the wife's enthusiasm)

I can only do this because of the tips & tricks I have learned from this community.

Just think, I do not think I'm quite 1/2 finished with this build.

Well, thanks again!
