    Update time! And it's all about fenders.

    Like every other body part, it starts with flat steel plate

    And there was lot of tin soldering and the grinding and sanding. Do i repeat myself?

    Hopefully we see a great truck? So much to do but soon i get on to the details.

    Engine hood has now hinges. Just simply wrap steel plate around needle, then some fine grindering.

    Body mounting is solved. Cabin floor is mounted on chassis. Body mounts with screws here.

    Seats and some bed roll foam on it.

    Engine bay area has lot of room, so decided to make box for battery and easy change for that.

    Cutted the door windows, bent dash board and steering wheel.

    "Dimitri" Has lot room to pull steering wheel inside.

    Thanks! I will keep going on But the Work truck build off contest for me is now game over. Too big project for me, and if there was 1 mont more time to left...

    This build contest was good thing to me, cause it kicked me to start new truck build. Thanks for that

    In april 2020 there is gonna be hobby event called Hupicon on Helsinki where i'm attending to go. With finished Kraz offcourse, that's my goal.

    Also i like show my friends Toni's CA-30 based 1:12 scale "Spintires/mudrunner" truck. We have been kicking him to put topic here, but only he has done is IG account. Better check his talent @megasieppi . Maybe he someday joins here?

    Last major task in Kraz body build was the roof. I hammered the first version, thats the way to learn

    Then different approach angle and the result that satisfied me.
