Cab & Chassis Update

Chassis Front View Nurf Bar
Chassis Top View with A Frames

I have been in Sweden for the last couple of weeks, setting up an animatronic performance system for one of my film clients. While I have been away Josh has made good progress on the Cab design and chassis layout. The A frames and nurf bar are finished, and the fixing plates and oil tank/battery and fuel tank layout are looking good.

Cab Design with side bars

I will return at the end of this week, and we will take the chassis off to be painted. With the chassis gone we will have some room in the workshop to finish the fixing holes in the leg cheeks. For this we have a ply wood jig currently being CNC cut.
