    did a little bit of plastic work, testing some bonding methods to see if I'll be able to stretch the body like I want to.

    so the plastic weld I have works great for styrene, but these new bright bodies are some other kind of plastic, I have heard they are similar to abs, and you can use abs pipe cement, I'm going to grab some friday and see what I can do.

    I know in the plumbing section, they have ABS cement, PVC cement and also ABS to PVC cement. That last one might be helpful since it's a combination cement and may work with an odd plastic like that.
    This hobby begins as a search for the perfect setup, then gradually becomes the never ending discovery of the weakest link.

    cool, I'm going to try that, they also say the abs cement is sandable, and makes a good filler.

    that was my original plan, it depends on if I can get glue to work with it. Still testing, hopefully my transfercase will be here today.

    got the tcase and motor mount in the mail saturday afternoon. My hunch turned out to be correct, that the jeep TJ grill is too close to allow room for a Chassis Mounted servo with the motor mount from GCM. So I made one out of plate.

    Here is the pic of realizing it wont fit.
