Dang...this thing is looking like you should be able to put gas in the tank, turn the key, and let the Borrowers take it for a spin.

got some more work done to the steering set up, these are the inner tie rods and dust boots

IMG_1566-vi.jpgIMG_1568-vi.jpg<<<<< here they are assembled, with 360 deg movement,  they need to move up and down for the suspension and front to rear for the arc when the wheels are turned

here are the outer tie rods, I used the same method I used for the ball joints only smaller, they all so have complete movement IMG_1571-vi.jpgIMG_1572-vi.jpg<<<< with aluminum caps with a grease zerk and a couple jamb nuts

 

all mocked up fully functioning IMG_1573-vi.jpgIMG_1574-vi.jpgIMG_1576-vi.jpg

 

needs a little fine tuning at final assy. but it seems to work pretty good somehow, thanks for looking!

Totally incredible. You sure you weren't an engineer in a former life? Maybe an alien engineer?

I feel like I should say something......its just so unreal how real it looks......I'm once again amazed, at the skill you have. The tough part is trying these techniques for myself. This is actually encouraging me to push myself. Keep up the fantastic work!

1/25th. scale Zerk fittings........ I don't think I've ever had that thought in my mind. Ever. I mean, in my totall recall of anything I've ever read, said, or thought of, I can say with all honesty I've never experienced those numerals and characers stringed together to form those words:

1/25th. scale Zerk fittings.......wow.

So let me get this straight. When you turn the steering shaft, the wheels steer? If that's the case, then, you, my friend, are a machining genius.

I was going to say the same thing, but with something other than machining before the word genius..... ;)
