Thank you sir. :D

Here are some photos of the chassis with printed arms and rear guard assembly. I've designed the arms to yield a track width to match the Sand Scorcher's.

That's really come out nice :D
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.
A problem shared is a problem halved but an advantage shared is no advantage at all.
