Ford F350 Lowrider w/ functional air suspension

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

As I've been stuck in my flat since new year's eve due to my health and now this Corona BS I've got a million projects on the go. My next one is a Lowrider with functional air suspension.

I've started with a TA02SW kit but I'm making a custom top and lower deck using 3mm styrene sheet. This will be more of a shelf queen so that should do, although I might later get a custom deck made from carbon fibre sheeting. The 1st step was to mark where all the holes are and then move the front section 54mm to get the wheelbase I need for the F350 body.

Very interested in your air suspension...

The system I'm using is from a guy in Canada which is actually designed for 1/14 trucks. The front and rear wil; be adjusted independently

Neat.  Looks like a brushed ESC and a peristaltic pump, which is very nice for metering out small quantities of air (or liquids).  The air bags are pretty cool.

The chassis is taking shape. Need to cut the rear shock tower down but everything seems to line up. I've made it wider so I can use the original mounts for the front body and for extra room for the extra electronics

I've got to say, looks great from the rear with the shock mount chopped down lol. Turns out the rears are too wide so getting a new set
