Thanks!
Im not sure about that magic saw looks alittle to infomercial to me? If the product doesnt sell its self and they do an hour long infomercial then its probably not worth it...And a jewelers saw has been used by jewelers for years and years not to mention top modelers so it must work! I plan to get one before I start on my next brass project..I do see your progress on the bumper and the lights and it looks fantastic!! congrats on a job well done,,, oh I love the antena!!!

It has been quite a productive weekend. Here's where I'll start... I received my spare wheel and tire from RC4WD. So I finished up teh carrier and HiLift mount:



This is where I left off last time. Only now I've added the lug bolts to the carrier. I had to wait for the wheel so that I could get the bolt pattern correct. Also, on my 1:1 I have my carrier flipped upside down, so what you see is correct for me



On the bumper is the HiLift carrier. It is a sleeve design. You'll see as we progress through these pics.



Slid over the lug bolts is the base of the HiLift carrier



Then the tire goes on and gets secured with lug nuts... or .80 nuts in this case.



Now the sleeve fits over and they are secured together by a clip (kinda hidden in this shot)



Finally, the jack gets secured with a flat plate. Below are just a couple more shots of the set up.







Now... Onto the front bumper.

I'm very glad that I messed up the first version, because this came out far better than I hoped. As you look tat the following photos, take note that I still have a lot of clean up to do. I got some pretty bad boogers that need filing down.



Straight on you can really see some of the bad boogers. They will get taken care of though.



This rear shot you can see the winch tray and frame mounts.







Here it is mocked up on the chassis with the body. I also started getting the posts made for the 3 Hella 4000 lights on the front. They are still kinda wonky and will be finessed, but you get the idea of how this bumper will look on the truck with all the lights.



Oh, in case you're wondering, the tabs on the top sides are for limb risers.



I am quite happy with this bumper. Still a lot of work to do on it with regards to clean up.

Thanks for looking!

Cheers,
-Steven

Looking great! One word of caution: consider making a hilift jack out of metal if you mount it like that. One roll and you'll snap the plastic one.

As stated before this is a killer build. Definitely headed for a Top Build. The time, effort, and passion (that's what it seems like, anyway! ) is stunning.
I'm lost for words...
