Heres pics of what I'm starting with, also showing how I'm going to join the pieces by sleeving the ends in each other. Each rail will also be plated on both sides with .32" brass strips once they are complete.

Finished one of the rails today, plated with 3/32" and the bottom was plated also with 3/32x1/2" for skid protection and a little more weight down low.

One side done, need to get more 1/2x3/32" strips to finish second rail then
once I figure out exactly where the center skid is going and install the shock mounts I'll do the finishing soldering and when tima allows do the final mock up hopefully soon thereafter off to powder coating !

I'm open to comments and questions

I completed the 2 rails and all the finish work on them today, heres a few pics. As you see these are not light weights LOL

Now on to making cross braces and figure out where the center skid is going ?

Thanks Brian, maybe starting a trend who knows ?

On the Crawler forum the guys were coming up with brass related nicknames for me, I personally liked "BrassHole" the best. Might be the trucks name ?

I still have to figure out where the trans shifter servo is going and install the rear steering servo mount. Also have to figure what I'm doing for a radio box and battery tray and where the hell their going ??
I think the battery will ride shotgun next to the trans parallel with the frame.

Plenty to do yet, once the mock up is complete I will dissasemble everything and deanodize the colored aliuminum piecse and then decide weither I get it powder coated or try the brass aging/tarnishing chemical I bought ?
