    Looks great so far! I'm interested to see how the drive train works as well.

    The nasty chemical stuff from ebay seems to bond nicely

    Dichloromethane 99.5% Pure

    Its for sale on ebay uk. No idea if its available where you live
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/140574254717.
    Pretty Lethal Chemical comes with lots of warnings on the Bottle.
    Child Proof Bottle says 'Suspected of Causing Cancer' on it so be responsible and use it at you own risk.
    Does stick things nicely though.

    Put simply:-

    Don't drink it, inhale it, get it in your eye's and avoid if you can skin contact. other than that your good to go.

    Ah yeah, thought so... available at any plastic shop, also known as Methylene Chloride or nicname Dyclo.
    I use it in small doses with a resperator and industrial shop fan.
    Was just hoping there was another solution but so far nothing bonds like it.

    Everyone on this side of the big pool. European legislation banned the stuff, so you'll have to get it from far

    It appears that us brits' didn't join in with that ban then

    Had a couple of packages rock up today, first one came in quite a nice box



    Inside were these





    the other one was just in a padded envelope which had this in it







    more of that in a moment.

    When I got in from work I mounted a couple of tyres up and stuck them on the back axle, and offered the cab up to get a feel for the width





    I think I might bring the width of the axles in another 10mm as they seem a little too wide for the shell.

    having the wheels also allowed me to work out how much to remove from the chassis (2")


    I now just need to braze them back together.

    And finally back to the contents of the padded envelope

    for those that don't recognise it, it's an Axial XR-10 crawler gearbox and gears (from Hotracing). I came across the idea for this over on RCCrawler on a sportsman crawler build from Chris_the _battery_man, he called the front side jones.

    The nice things about using this is that is relatively compact and gives a greater reduction ratio than the SCX gearbox and has the facility to use a number of different size pinions to fine tune the gearing.

    To make it work for this build I had to drill a hole through the casing to allow the output to exit from the opposite side to normal and to cut a couple of tabs off the bottom of the casing.

    One down one to go,



    and fully assembled



    that's it for tonight
