MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. The '19 Silverado is just awful and don't even get me started on how they ruined the Camaro for '19. That being said, the GMC is the much better looking twin and has been now for a few generations.
  2. Excellent work on the conversions necessary to bring the body up to Grand Sport/Z06 spec. Also thanks for the heads up on Plamoz. Several things in their inventory that I need for various Vette projects
  3. Nothing like a slump buster to get back into the groove of things.
  4. No more CAD pics after this, I promise. I found some additional info and tweaked my original designs. I made the distance between the ears of the shackles wider, completely redrew the shackle anchor to make the base 4" x 3" (this seemed to be more in line with several of the 1:1 bolt-on kits) and while in the course of doing some research on tow hooks for the winch I ran across several articles that pointed out the superiority of using a safety thimble and shackle versus a traditional clevis hook so I went that route instead. I don't have a huge interest in off-roading with the exception of a soft spot for Jeeps so a lot of this was plain old eyeball engineering.
  5. And the shackle's matching anchor.
  6. This is printed in the white versus the frosted ultra detailed correct?
  7. Finished up the CAD for the light bar.
  8. Body meets chassis for the first time. Turn signals and tail lights all that's left for the body itself. The roll cage that comes with the kit is an awful representation of the one of the Jeep from Tomb Raider. Not sure yet if I want to build a Poison Spyder cage or use the main hoop from the kit and build out the rest of the cage properly. No one makes a 50" LED light bar in scale so that may be my first venture into 3D printing. Need a hook for the winch on the bumper and tow shackles for the bumpers as well...And I told myself this was going to be a quick little project outta the box to get my skills back into shape ? Oh and it needs dirt and mud, a camp/tent bag and a sleeping bag for the back seat...
  9. That's exactly what I was looking for to finish up my Jeep Rubicon. I need a hook for the winch and four clevises for the bumpers.
