I wasn't gonna do it, because the kit came with a 4-link truss, and was planning to save all the axle-brazing, for future Metalhead axles. But I just couldn't stop thinking about the plastic 4-link truss.
Had to start on some:
Also made the grill gaurd. Man that was hard to bend, and try to make it symetrical. It just barely is. My excuse for anything brazed crooked; It will get bent after some tumbles anyway:
Hope to have all three done and mounted tomorrow. We'll see.
lookin great! your hard work is paying off this is going to be a very cool build
The truss at the back was the one I learned the above on. You just make out where the rod-ends bolt to, that the tube is ovalish. The one in front came out as planned:
And posing them:
This is as far as I can go until I make a body, get my transmission and drive bits in, so I can figure out some roll cage tubing.

Nice progress! The parts are lookin great!!
Yes, square tube, then cut off what's not needed, then file like mad.
Looking great man! Metal work is fantastic. Are those gcm wheels?
Oh ya. GCM's rock. The final upgrade for this build, will be his axles.
Custom metal work metalhead axles it just keeps getting better thumbs up bud
