    I've cut up a fridge magnet and put some random stickers on it. Good thing the trailer is steel....

    I was told I can't pass the MOT if the trailer isn't lit... I was also told I need a skid plate..... P. S. Forum doesn't work on my PC

    trailer wheels? Just a plain steel axle. I was thinking about leaf springs.. but I only have either to hard, or to soft leaf steel strips to make the springs.. so I decided against it for now...

    Grapple Skidder scratch build

    awesome build.. but.. where's the "grapple" part of the grapple skidder? This is (albeit awesome) a winch skidder

    Added some 96mm Beadlocks. Painted them black with a marker, just to see how it looks like. Will have to paint it properly. The fit was snug, but I noticed that the wheels rub while steering. So I widened the arches a bit..

    all of this was done using only basic tools. A vice, a dremmel, a drill and some hand tools. So don't be afraid of trying it yourself. More updates to come, when I get the parts I've ordered....

    Aluminum plates, aluminum hollow rod (6mm). A bit of sanding here, dremmeling there. A bend here, and a hammer wack there. Didin't turn out that bad at all. Mind you.. I had to cut a bottom part of the spare tire out, so the body sits flush to the rear fender. Not a big deal. I'm waiting for the tow hitch to arrive, and to mount it . It would be really easy to add a small "L" piece of aluminum with a ball end screwed on it, to have a small tow hitch, but I like the bigger version with a pin. Front fender has some extra holes for mounting a winch or something...

    I really didn't like the front generic bumper, and after seeing the prices of metal ones.. I said .. f-it. I'll make my own...

    Since the main goal of this build is to get a usable trail rig, I knew I had to change the tires. I've ordered some 96mm beadlocks, but after some consultations with other CC owners, I've learned that 90mm is about maximum that the body can accept without trimming. I've ordered some 90mm tires to mount on the original rims, but I still decided to give it a go with the 96mm ones. I had to raise the body. There are several options of lifting the hard body. The best one is to flip the rear body mounts, and rais ethe front one. I've raised the front one using some plastic rollers ( 10mm high) that came on the plastic sprues, and I haven't found a place to mount them. I've placed them under the front mount, and used long M3screws to screw it in place. I had to move the body part of the rear mount as far up as it goes. Drilled 2 new holes, and got additional 20mm of lift. Awesome. Even fully compressed, the 90mm wheels don't hit anything. With some mm to spare.. I hope 96mm ones will work as well.
