Thanks Guys!

It's slightly nose up, but I like it a little nose up.  It will probably settle once the engine is on there.  Also the axle is hanging about an inch forward at the moment.  I need to make my back mounting point for the monolink still.

I finally got around and made the hood mount on the extended frame.  Works well.

My scrap metal for the monolink back brace is outside in the rain on the other side of a deep water puddle.

Rain is suppose to stop tomorrow sometime.  I have to run down to Dallas then Ft. Worth for the day.  Hopefully I can get the monolink shored up Sunday then I can get it cleaned up for paint.  Bad thing, it's cold now so painting will be a little difficult.  Maybe it will be warm enough Sunday.  Warmest day in the next 10 days.

I finally got all 3 links of the monolink attached (temporarily) to the frame.  I have a little tweaking to do for final install.  I made my frame crossbrace about half an inch too long and drilled my holes in the wrong spot.  That's OK, where I need to trim is where my holes are.  Fresh holes will be fine.  I also tacked up my tabs for the panhard bar.  My steering universal is working great now.  I am a little concerned how much meat it has to hold the 2 adjustable halves together.  I think I will be chopping one of the sections in two and welding in a pipe extension.

Well took the front structure back off and burned in the tack welds.  Ready for paint now but too cold and wet to do so.  Not sure 38° and Rain is the perfect conditions for paint.  I did go ahead and hit the steering shaft extension with some paint.

Everything is laid out to be painted.

Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 7 Img_2196

Extended my steering universal by about 3 inches.  Went ahead and hit it with some paint anyway in the garage.  It's about 59° in there.

Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 7 Img_2197

Rear monolink point is finished and ready for paint as well.

Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 7 Img_2198

Steering complete as well.  Went with a different rack for the redo.  Hard to tell in this pic, but there is some ackerman in the spindles.

Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 7 Img_2199

Since I could not paint...  well.  I cleaned the garage.

Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 7 Img_2200

Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 7 Img_2201

Still to make.  Front bumper and finish the panhard bar (half complete next to computer mouse 2 pix up).  I just need a die to cut reverse threads or buy a regular heim.

Same one I have been using and is on Kal.  They are currently out of stock, but easy to modify.

I have been on the notify list for a couple months for them.  Sad

Kinda.... swapping the other one with Patriot.  I think it would work much better there.

I also realized, I may be jumping the gun on paint.  I'll go ahead with the bumper build.

Guess who is back on all 4's.  Still have a list of things to do.


  • still need my panhard bar. 
  • build my bumper
  • mount a winch
  • mount either a nilight bar or 2 pods
  • clean up engine, add oil and reinstall
  • Fender flares?


Things longer term.  As $$ permits.

  • Larger tires on front.
  • new matchng rear tires
  • bolt on wheels and hubs for rear.

Nice! Lookin' pretty good. When you say 'fender flares', do you mean rear ones or front ones? Either one will help.

Rear ones.  I've struggled with ideas on that since day one.  I like Doc's version but it doesn't work well with this model as the skirting on the fenders are not much more than an inch already.

Ah I see what you mean... You could weld some steel to the bottom at a 90 degree angle so it's already bent in or out. Outward would be easier to do but inward looks better depending the build....


Ah well, I guess you may not want to burn a hole in the body though.

I think you might be fine with Docs idea as long as you bend them outward like he did. Inward is just too tricky with limited space to drill your holes.

OK, my back was feeling ok tonight so I hefted the Engine back on the chassis.   I'll probably feel it tomorrow.  

Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 7 Img_2203

Items for next few days are:

  • still need my panhard bar. 
  • build my bumper
  • mount a winch
  • clean up engine, add oil and bolt down
  • Fender flares? (low priority)
  • Gas Pedal
  • EXHAUST

Quite a few things knocked off the list today.  At this point, I could throw in a battery, fuel and start it up!  I'll hold off for a bit.

Hey it looks real nice but, please tell me that's not the final color for the bumper...

What's protecting the winch from rocks?

Color looks better in person.  Winch is pretty high up even though it is mounted upside down.

Nice work Mighty, I agree it has a real nice stance now. She's shaping up!

I gott say though... seeing that winch hanging down like that is anxiety triggering, haha. Maybe a super cool front skidplate?

Ain't that the truth. I see bad things coming when trying to push something with it. Gives me "the heebie jeebies"... Mighty's Li'l Red 2.0 - Page 7 2664539216

EDIT: I used nilights on my widebody. You actually have more room than I did. Doc used them on his too as you know... Just gotta make mounts.

My 7 inch nilight is HUGE.  Going to use the 2 pods I have.

Here it is on a more serious note.  Not finished welding or painted, but here is the mock-up of the new bumper.

Also a good welding day.  LOL!
