Any special plans for the steering?

Don Currie likes to steal my work!

NICE !  I see that in most of it that you have the panels welded. are you going to make one solid shell ??

Well being a pro stocker I will need a quick steering response, not sure the real tumbler steering would be quick enough but I will experiment with it a while to find the safest way possible and still look cool.

No. The body is design in 2 half clam shells, with about a dozen fasteners holding it to the tubing shell. And the top will come up and back out of the way, so it is a total of 3 pcs. construction. I will be building the front and rear bulkheads next, after the top scoops and side scoops. Small changes are necessary to make this a drivable machine. So from a distance it will appear to be a tumble, but as you all know it wont, because you will see the differences right away. It is really low and rather shorter than a tumbler so it looks a little like a mad bumble bee. The top sides are next on the list to complete the front and side appearances.

Mostly 16, some 14, trying to keep it under a 1000 lbs. I still have all the sheet metal angles around the side window
area to weld on then try and get the whole top to go up and back similar to the movie but not exact. This is not a exact
copy but my translation in what the story line would also have been working on with the bridging vehicle, for the US army. Small Reconnaissance vehicle. Ha Ha enough of the bat.


cut off finger slowed me down for 2 weeks , starting back in on project. Front end next.

Nope it will take 6 weeks probably. just got to get used to a stub . Thanks for asking. I have a good nurse, she was
grossed out at first but soon got used to changing the bandage daily.

This project is really cutting edge, lol . My wife un boxed my spindles and hubs for the SRV10, and cut the tip of her little finger off. I feel terrible. She was going to surprise me with a picture while I was at work and lifted it out and cut it off. I met her a the ER and she really was hurting, but they got her patched up and now both of us have fingers that are rapped up in protectors. Just call us both 9 1/2. Back on track when we are healed up. We sure are a silly couple. See ya next time.
