And now , the most tedious task , at least for me , of this project . Although I will take an rc4wd cabin, because this one from tamiya looks like a colander, there are now no Marlin version beds, so I have to cut and paste, since it is not the first thing I do, I already know what to do and what not to do, Let's see if it's better than the last one hehehehehe

I have taken advantage of the weekend to do things, test suspension, make links and other things, to see if what is missing is coming and I continue with the bodyworka

More parts have arrived, for now I have been able to adjust front links including panhard and its support.
Definitely, I will put smaller tires, it will go very low and with Currie axles, with the pitbulls it rubs when going wider than with yota axles.
