    The Saw Em Off flag is ironic in this situation...

    Today was a good day. I welded out the main hoop and made up the last four tubes for the back half. So everything that I had modeled is now built.

    I also cleaned up the axle today in preparation for the truss and link mounts.

    Soooooooo

    I think it needs some wood on back and a Trail Toys sticker but in the Radio Flyer design... and maybe some white wheels.

    I've made some decent progress over the past few days, with some help from @Boomtacoma01 yesterday.

    It's been a wee bit warm here, so welding in the shop is always fun, especially when I have to close the doors. Darn shield gas needs a nice still environment.

    2018-08-25 10.19.41.jpg 2018-08-25 10.20.06.jpg 2018-08-25 10.57.20.jpg 2018-08-25 11.02.59.jpg 2018-08-25 11.06.36.jpg
    2018-08-25 12.50.11.jpg
    With Chris's help we started to finalize the link mounts. Chris chose a single triangulated setup. With pushing the lower link mounts out to the outside of the axle we gained triangulation of the lowers as well. We'll see how she does when we get her rolling.

    2018-08-25 15.18.40.jpg
    Notice that the truss is rotated a bit forward from the diff cover. I had the truss laid against the diff to begin with, but chose to rotate it forward to where it's horizontal at ride height.

    2018-08-25 17.06.48.jpg
    These pictures are at ride height.

    2018-08-25 17.07.14.jpg 2018-08-25 17.10.04.jpg 2018-08-25 17.13.01.jpg
    Now at full bump. We're looking at 9" of up travel and 7" of down travel. Should be nice and stable on the trail.

    2018-08-25 19.43.22.jpg
    Here's how the upper coilover mounts are going to work. Once everything is welded out I'll be plating that triangle and stiffening the coilover mount.

    2018-08-25 19.43.39.jpg
    Here's how I left her last night. I'll get back to work on her tomorrow, it's time for a break.
