Ok, So i got a few idea's, but before i begin i just got to let you know, i cant offer you a set of templates that are stretched or skewed in any way, this will cause me to have to redraw the ENTIRE set, and with all due respect....i really dont want to do that *sigh*.

OK!  first off....this is an idea i have for the 1/2 scale templates that you already have, im trying to find a way to keep you from having to rework the panels too much from what is on the drawings i sent you.   Simply build the body just as it shows in my drawings, BUT split it right down the middle, and filling in the now stretched area, this will allow the front forks to go by the front wheels, allowing room for them to turn as well.   This also keeps there from having to be any frame or suspension modifications, other than "cut out what doesnt need to be there" work. 

Second idea is a slightly scaled up version of the templates i just sent you, these templates are not quite the size i have my body set to be, my body calls for a 60" cabin, whereas in this picture, the cabin is 4 1/2 foot i believe.    This allows you to have a complete, no alterations body, BUT requires an extension of the rear suspension to get the rear wheels (or duely's whatever you wish) out of the body.   As well as the front needs to be reposistioned for the now outstretched body.    Go cart tires are shown in blue.    Again these are just a few idea's, neither have to be followed

Thanks Shaggy, they are great ideas! You are way ahead of the build, but I do like that. So than we can put these ideas and options to the table and try to pick the best one. I think I understood the first idea, that would be the 1/2 scale? The second idea, is that the full scale under 8-foot templates? If so, explain. I thought I would let you know my job hours are from 10:00 pm to 10:30 am at the cheese plant right now. There are times I am tired so I don't get anything done during the day. The days are short and the nights are cold, so I end up doing nothing. Right now what I am doing is to clean her up and than take the bumper and rollcage off. Than I will take pics to see what it looks like. I am working overtime to make extra money for the build. I was going to ask you if I should purchase the duel tires to get and idea to work around them. For sure this tumbler will have the duel tires in the back do to the short back axle. It will try to equal out the width to match the front end.

The first picture with it split in half is the 1/2 scale panels that you possess, the second picture with it together, but over the wheels is the 2/3rds panels that i am currently building in my son's bedroom.   No one else has this size panels but me at the moment.   But if you feel they would be better suited for you, let me know and i'll send you a copy.  

If your going to go with the 1/2 scale panels you have, 22" rear tires should be great, if your wanting to upscale to my size that im building, the rear tires are about 31" tall. 

SO....any updates?

Great job on your build Shaggy! I wish we didn't live so far. We can build our builds together. I really like want you did with the cardboard. Noticed you were talking about using fiberglass or metal. I was thinking of using aluminum. I am checking out the flexibly and gauge of the aluminum I am going to use. Thanks for sharing the video on the baby tumbler. It looks so cute! Yes if you are offering the 2/3rd plates, go head and send them to me. What I will do is make a couple of 1/2 templates and 2/3rds templates to see witch will work for me. Now for any up dates no. Yes, I am like you. When it comes for up dates I really do like to see pics. I do have some great news for myself. I am off the overtime list at work, back to the eight hour shift. Now I can have more time on my build. I will send updates on my build as soon as I can.  Thanks, Terry

Thanks Shaggy for thinking of us. You have been a great help. Thanks for the upgrade templates. I did get them. I just have been under the weather. Boy, it seems it has been a cold one this year. I'll get back to you soon.
