    Default MrCommaD Builds a Jeep TJ Brute

    Back at it.

    Building the box and getting the rear cantilever suspension together







    Made the hood hinges by carefully cutting the factory plastic ones and drilling very small .038 holes to fit the .038 spring steel rod through







    Cantilever mount also doubles as the platform to attach the box




    And the front tube style fenders





    Oh and the wheels needed some scale hardware from LURC.

    Wow, lots of fabrication eye candy here! Love the mix of styrene and metal work. Very cool so far!

    Black styrene is my favourite to work with. Dunno why, or even if it's different, but I like it better.

    Great progress and nice bends!

    Thanks Matt. The bends turned out ok, still had some shrinkage from the heat but not too bad.

    Well today was a successful day for building my little Vacuum Forming station, and really happy with the end result for the Brutes roof.
