Haven't had time to work on it lately due to this new addition



I finally went down and worked on it some tonight though. I cut the hood away from the grill, and started making the grill thicker for the radiator.





While the grill is drying, I started working on the removable firewall to hide my electronics behind!
open space for electronics:


firewall to cover them:

How exactly are you making all this stuff for your crawler? Like what are you using to make the radiator and the grill thicker and all that?

Here is my radiator:




Stopped by hobby lobby for some hinges for the hood:



What good is that hemi if it can't exhale?



Similar to my 1:1 with just a turndown after the skid, but tucked up high to stay out of the rocks.


Space between the motor and radiator is required for tr steering servo, so to help the hemi breathe and take up some space I'm thinking this is how I'm gonna do the air filter.

worked on the inner fenders today


radiator is mounted, and removable!

reusing the stock front bumper to hold the grill in place, also looks like my 1:1 bumper with the ends cut down.

IT'S GETTING CLOSE!!
