Bullitt,,Tomsloat,,,Marzo,,,, Thank you for the wonderful comments. Keeps me motivated and doing my best. I had to stop myself yesterday, I Was starting to get sloppy and lazy. Can't have that on this one..no sir-re...As for wild willy's ..they rock. I had always wanted one also...Thanks to Bullitt for hooking me up..anyways, updates may be slow...I have some more research to do on rear Of interior. I need to find out what some others have done for electronics and battery position. I want to run my small compact zippy lipo up front next to servo under fuel tank, just not a for sure yet. I still have a spectrum rx and speed control to hide also..Thinking they need to be under rear seat. Thanks for looking everyone. Research time..

Thanks 8...As for powerrrrr..Not quite sure yet. It has the stock Tamiya motor in it now and I do have a stocker speed control also, Might try it first, If that's not enough umpph...LIPO baby..and brush-less. I don't want to tear it up though...That's what my daily driver wraith is for. Also I do believe I'm going to do sumthing simple for rear area batt cover and esc like topolino did in his orange bug build...Page 17 in the buggy section. Now that guy did some crazy cool appealing builds. Look them up and search it..Just cool and inspirational..and rusty....Awesome....

Not much to update, just fine tuneing fitting and making it functional. A few things have changed. Like i decided to go ahead and atach upper floor to lower sub floor. I'm still working on rear compartment. Hope to have some pics up soon. If i do this right, i will be able to leave all the interior caponuts alone and be able to just change bodys. Cross your fingers.........thanks for looking.

I'm stumped as all get out. Here is an update though. I have the rear interior deck Idea in, and some rear Inner fenders done. I was doing good Up to this point. As of right now, the Interior will come off with a few screws taken out and the rear shock nuts. I have no real choice but to put the RX and ESC in this position I believe for want of a full interior. Their is enough room to hide the RX inside of MR. willy, If I need too. I wanted to make a rear seat but its looking like it may just get a Lid of sorts that flips open to access the electronics. I just don't know, Any Ideas and comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking everyone.

I am sure you will figure out what to do - but yeah, trying to squeeze everything into a small area can be a real challenge

ok - after looking at your pics, here is a thought for you...

what if you made a stationary seat bottom, and had the seat back flip forward for access to the electronics? do something kind of like the older pickup bench seats used to be...

Thanks Heartless, I have thought about that also, And just making the rear seat lift out as a whole piece. I do have room for the ESC next to the servo and behind the fire wall If I need to locate it their. That would leave more room for a batt in the rear area.
