Got started on the motor and body today so here we go.
I may go back to the full diesel truck body and save this body for another project but we’ll see.
No matter here’s a how to on doweling.
The body is going to flip up so need a motor.
Started cutting out the body and then sanding the windows.
I’ve been using a file and metal straight edge to get my windows looking right.
My saw is just barely holding on, I’m surprised it got these parts cut.
That Raccoon just about killed it.
I like to use dowels to hold my projects together as I build, this keeps every thing lined up and I don’t have to glue it all up so fast can leave it loose to be able to change thing as I go along.
So here’s a step by step.
Using my Dowel Crafter jig.
I could have used my Shop Smith in horizontal drill press mod just as easy but forgot about it at the time.
Now when I get ready to glue every thing up I don’t need to worry about the parts moving while gluing and adding clamps, every thing stays put.
Here’s some body shots.
Will need to cut out the back, the motor is half way in the cabin.
That’s all folks.
