I got this plan from Grizzy for $4 on sale and I must say it was a blast to build this car and that’s not even talking about the wheels I made.
All the different angles to play with on the fenders and all, makes it turn out just right and looks really nice once built.
I know all the votes were for the tanker truck but I’m really glad I waited so now I have a better idea of what is needed to really soup the truck up I think.
They sell a fancier version of the truck at T&J that I wish I would have bought instead but all the shapes are there to get it done.
So from our last post I needed to drill the axle holes and use the SS to get er done.
I made a sliding table for my Shop smith and it was needed in this part of the project.
I should have drilled out the holes when I first cut out the base but didn’t so now it’s a tad harder because the base or frame has been cut up for the axles and there’s only to points of contact with the table to get it drilled out right.
The distance between the axles is like 16” so one end will be hanging off the table for either drilling.
But with the sliding table I can move the table from side to side and keep the base where it will work.
Here’s a sneak peak planing to post tomorrow.
I just couldn’t bring myself to cut any grooves in the tires, my nerves just wouldn’t put up with me buggering one of them up. lol
Now that it’s done I can get back to what I had planed before rearranging my shop.
