So suspension was irritating me so I moved to something else. The front bumper got its first primer coat, almost happy with its shape. Little more sanding and should be good. And have the blow thru where I want it. If you don't know what a blow thru is, it is when you put your subs in the bed and cut a hole into the cab. I bought so Aoshima Kicker subs and amps. The box resembles the one I did in my old s10 (real truck not a model). The top is clear styrene, the blue is just the protective film.
Alright so I got my rod ends. They're from RB Motion and are outstanding. Also got the stainless tubing to go with them. Putting them together with Scale Hardware bolts. Also added trusses to axles. Here are front frame 4 link brackets and 4 link axle brackets.
