It's coming along nice Richard. You picked a pretty unusual truck to slam, but that's what is so great about it. I want to see what you come up with for the headlights.

 

You should check out the wheel sets Shucky has, as not only are they really quality pieces, he's got some nice modern designs that would fit right in on this build.

Austin, how appropriate to have a video with Alice in it. first, I loved the original Alice Cooper band as a kid, it was the band that got me interested in music. Second, with all the grief this build has put me through since I got back on it I decided to name it "Welcome To My Nightmare".

 

Bob, the front suspension is scratch. It's made from 3/64' evergreen rod, 1/16" tube, the airbags are o-rings wrapped around some 1/8"rod, and the kingpins are 3/64"rod. The spindles are made from 1/16"tube and some scrap .040 sheet. The tie rod is brass rod with brass tubes soldered to the ends. Go back to post 18 on page one of this thread, it shows the construction of the suspension.

 

From now on I plan to make my suspension pieces from brass, the styrene is too fragile.

The interior and chassis are finally one assembly. I thought I had finished all the plumbing, cables and wiring, but I forgot the shifter cable and now that it's all together, I'm not sure I can get it in or if I even want to try. I think I can live without it.

Now to paint the front suspension and get that buttoned up.

Let's just forbid that the car in question may have been created for an express purpose.  

Now that you've said that, I could see this being a car built for weddings or something similar, I seriously doubt it was built as a custom show car.  It seems it was built tall enough to stand in, a mobile chapel perhaps? As with some of the other oddball customs that have been posted lately, the craftsmanship seems to be of good quality.
