how about putting the cooling fan between the frame facing downward if you don't have enough room and running hoses along the frame...just my 2 cents

Don't know if you have made your springs for you shocks yet buy my wife makes jewelry and she uses this wire called "Memory Wire". You can get it in different thicknesses and get it at almost any bead store or Joanns . It's almost like piano wire. Glad to hear that you and your family are all OK!

Thank you guys. 

Actually I did make the springs for the shocks. I bought a bag of little neckless clasps that are meant to be used on rubber string or something. So they look like springs and they are just the right size. I'll take pictures and post them.

I ahve not done anything new to the model, because I am still scratching my head what to do with the front suspension. I want a traditional looking front axle, but to be as trick as the rear end. The problem I am running into is that everything that comes to mind involves inboard shocks and I don't have the space. I can scratch build an IFS, but it would be too ordinary. 

Any ideas are welcome.
