    I gotta a little more done.

    Brazed in some tubing in the bumpers, to hold some LED bulbs. Rear will get 5mm reds for brakes, 3mm orange for signals. Front will get 5mm yellow for fog:



    With the main flash mold released from the lexan original, I fit the lexan body so the grill-cage could be brazed on. I made the cage before I got the winch, and didn't plan for how far the right side of it stuck out. So had to bend the gaurd around the winch motor. I'm happy with it:



    I wanted that "Angry-Eyed" look:

    Thanx Guys.

    That's what I like about these forums...The inspiration circle if you will. I get influenced by others' builds, and my build influences right back.

    Default Easter Building Time :)

    Speaking of which, I love how the "Mangler" has features that swing out. I just gotta have some features like that.

    A quick access battery tray for example. Press a button, out comes the battery.

    Going to use bullet conectors when hooked up, so I can just rip it out of the truck if it looks like the battery is going to go.

    Still have to make latch-spring. Just gonna braze a piece of piano-wire to do that job:





    These were tricky:

    Nice innovation! When you're working with metal, are you cutting pieces with a rotary tool?

    Thanx fellas.

    I've been using the rotary for detail cuts, like the grip on the trigger. Most parts have been rough cut with hack-saw, the filed, rotory'd, drilled, and sanded.
