    KW parts for trade
    I have these parts that I will most likely never use. Trade for 1/24- 1/25 car or pickup kit or parts. Also includes a few misc. tank parts. Will separate truck/tank parts, if you want.

    I have one that I picked up at a thrift store. The parts have been spray painted (poorly). The decals and instructions are missing but everything is still on the trees. If you are interested, PM me for pics. I'm willing to trade it cheap. If the engine is all you want, we could do that too.

    Got some bench time in this evening. Got the beginnings of a winch made for the front bumper and a bit more of the bumper done. Still a bit to go before the bumper is ready to paint. Also got a small bit done on the interior. Still researching the type of suspension I will be doing.

    Grzegorz-
    Can you show some pics of the suspension?

    Glad we traded kits.  It's nice to see what my kit became.  Great job on it.

    Nice job lowering the front. That would be an excellent candidate for a freshening up. I have had a couple of those over the years and would love to get a couple more to build.

    Looking good, but I can't wait until you work on the Sand Shark that we traded!!

    Tonight's  slow progress. I didn't take any time to build while my buddy was here. We just sat and enjoyed talking and listening to music. I managed to get this bit of progress done on the front bumper within the last hour.
    I'm going to try to add a foot step to each side of the bumper in the next spot under the turn signals. A little added detail, plus on a 1/1 it would be needed in order to stand on the bumper and work on the motor.

    Thanks Diesel. I am not sure of what I am going with yet but I am thinking of air shocks. I need to do some thorough research in this area. I haven't looked at lifted suspensions in years. Been trying to look through photos on the inner tube this last week but haven't found much to be helpful. I may need to go old school and get some 4X4 magazines.
    As far as shortening the cab I think I'm gonna forego the extra work.....

    I got some bench time in yesterday. This is what the interior looked like when I received it. I spent some time installing the door pulls, cleaning up the seats and test fitting everything.
    Pretty basic. I may make a door post Guage set but probably won't be able to see much in here.

    I cleaned up the body moldings and removed the molded exhaust tips. I will either smooth and fill the exhaust cut outs or run aluminum tips out the cut outs.
    I also cut the front bumper away from the grille and began making a custom bumper out of some resin diamond plate and flat stock.
    I have a buddy coming over today for a bit of build time. I will post more photos after that. Comments and criticisms welcomed.
