After radiusing, turning and skimming bits, I ended up with this. Added to the arrival of the new wheels, it's a reasonable hike-up. It even looks a bit like a truck.

Need to do some little bits. The TT02B is notoriously bad for sloppy fit and wobbly steering.

New cups for axle ends.

Now it's starting to look like something reasonable. The suspension is about right, so I've put in the real shock mounts for fine tuning.

This won't be a shelf queen, it's being "built", rather than just put together. So....

Shock tower bracing.

Bushing the steering to get rid off the chronic play in the pivots.
