Just a small update, I recieved some of the M2 screws I ordered and did a quick install, they look so much better than the other screws I was using!

I was told the leafs, spring mounts, shackles, etc should have been here by last Wednesday, but they haven't showed! The body armor is on the door now at least. Tomorrow I will make up a spare tire mount and start cutting out the head lights and make some buckets for the lights. The last 2 pic's are for Ian, after all, he did spy something starting with a "B"!! Oh, and Ian, I do have that set of yellow wheels for a Scotsman you may know!

I hope your parts arrive soon, i'm really looking forward to seeing the updates on this one
Them new screws do look a lot better, they are sort of camouflaged into the alloy diamond plate. That Bruiser is nice!! I have always liked them, i think because they where slightly ahead of there time and the fact the axles, leafs and hardware are really scale looking! Want me to clean it up for you?

TOP WORK!!!

Too cool this Sammy!! Did you paint the shell from the inside? If so, won´t the glue destroy the colour?

The rim and tire combo looks perfect

Yes, I did paint the Sammy from the inside, however, the interior is not glued the the shell, the interior is held in place by using the small M2 screws that attach the interior the the shell through the body armor, mirrors, which I still need to make, and spot lights in the front! Thanks for your kind comments as well!

I'm using a chassis made by David Diaz, here are some pic's where you can kinda make it out! I am still waiting for some other parts I purchased from David to show so I can go forward with the chassis build for this Sammy!!

Going by the colour of the body etc, i would have to pick the Matt black ones with the silver ring round... Ohh wait... How come your not wanting to paint them again?

I would be tempted to paint Dan! so long as you give them plenty of coats or plenty of coats of clear and then dull them down with a fine sanding/wet sand they shouldn't get to bashed up.
If they do, whats another coating or two?

I had my painted black wheels on the highlift for over a year and i only repainted about twice.
That thing used to get bashed and beaten on like there was no tomorrow.
I say paint paint paint.

But what do i know though, i'm just here for the and the and not forgetting the

Thanks for the input guys!! I really appreciate it! But due to the powers that be, it looks as if this build is going back in the box for a while! Right now the motivation is gone! It may be back, who knows! I always finish what I start, but after recent events completely out of my control, I just have a bad taste in my mouth at the moment! Thanks again for all who added their input in this build!
