    Step 2 & 3: Transfer Case and Frame Rails

    So far really impressed with the organization of this kit. All the parts are all well laid out. The "QC Passed" sticker really means something. No extra parts left over, no missing parts. Someone must really be inspecting these parts.

    Just a little test fitting. Still need to extend the wheelbase from 300mm to 313mm. I can do it with the spacers provided in the kit, but I'm going to wait for my Boom Racing links to arrive.

    Extended my wheelbase out to 310mm by using the included plastic 5mm spacers from the kit.

    Also made a ghetto lexan tray to mount my esc. Eh whatever, it's sturdy and puts the esc where I want it.

    Nowhere close to finished, but progress nonetheless. Painted the main coat for the body. Still need to paint the diamond plate box in the bed where the body posts mount, and paint the black trim around the windows.

    I still have not put on the Boom Racing links.

    Also waiting on shapeways parts to come in for the grill and lights. Still deciding on what to do for a roll bar.

    Pictures of progress.

    Encountered an issue with the Boom Racing steering links...

    The links hit the Axle cover at both ends of the steering angle. This restricts the steering angle a few degrees less than the stock links. It's more an issue with the rod-ends used. They aren't offset enough. I'll need to look for some M4 sized rod-ends with more off-set.

    Anyway... the rear links installed.

    Got my Knights Customs roll bar in, but I'm not sure how I'll mount it yet. I'll need to strengthen the holes to not have the screws grind away at it. Maybe fill the holes with something or find a way to glue something to use body pins.

    Also started prep work on the bed so that I can spray it with plasti dip as a bedliner.

    Also mounted my alloy beadlock wheels and Pro-Line Racing Hyrax 1.9 G8 Rock Terrain Truck Tires onto the truck.

    So... right now this build is being held up by getting the finish of these 3D printed parts right. I've wetsanded and clear coated, but I can't seem to get the cloudiness out of the clear parts. Anyone got any suggestions?
