    Thanks, this wasn't the easiest task for me as I have the shakes due to nerve damage caused by my previous line of work.

    Update 8 – January 7, 2018:

    Spent a good part of the day working on project D90 winch challenge truck; this morning I did some weathering on the jerry cans and wear on the shovel.





    I also fabricated front inner fenders.








    Also, I painted most of the flat black components, including assembling the headlamps.

    Looks Very Nice! I like those shocks im in the market... Do you like them so far? They look pretty scale... Do they use oil?

    Thanks.

    They are emulsion, work great, especially when combined with RC4WD 100 and 110mm Rock Krawler Shock Spring Assortment.

    They do leak oil, but I only ran them with the stock o-rings and expect them to not leak once equipped with red silicone X-ring seals. This is what I did on the XD with piggyback for my Wraith and they haven't leaked since.

    Update 9 – January 10, 2018:

    I started modifying the cage I purchased for project D90 Winch Challenge pickup.

    I added an “X” brace to the roof section to add a bit more protection during roll-overs.

    Also in the mix was a loop around the snorkel to prevent it being ripped off when she goes shiny side down.

    that snorkel frame will be more bad than good. I personally will lower it to make just support, not stick up

    Update 10 – January 11, 2018:

    I wasn’t happy with the look and gaps in the protection that the X brace offered to the roof, therefore I replaced it with straight bars.





    In the process of brazing the new roof section, I added mounting pins to store a pair of sand ladders. Simple and effective storage solution.





    Also, I made a fake floor panel out of styrene to mount the spare tire and high-lift jack.

    The panel is held in place with rare earth magnets and will be covered post painting with a scale aluminum checkered plate.
