    Some quick progress before dinner, the second strap is done, the center stowage cabinet was fixed to the body, yet removable in the future.






    On the side cabinets I added one partition per side to stow recovery chains and I made these cutesy little brackets to hold a scale Hi-Lift jack.







    Now, if you excuse me, I must go feed my family.

    Boy... this is what a full evening of work gives you when you are going for scale points... a fully functional shovel mount.










    Now, if this mount actually opens and closes, which it does, I can only assume that it counts towards “functional scale item” for the points of project D-Rat?!?

    This build just keeps getting better and better. Good idea to use that elastic hair band thing on the tie down straps. If I ever make tie downs, I'll try that for sure

    Thank you. I used the elastic hair band only because it is hidden behind the tire, otherwise getting just the right amount of tension using the actual buckles is a real PITA.
