Last night I got the trans case boiled, and also dug out the pair of Pro 90s that I bought, and boiled those to get them off the wheels they were glued to. I damaged one of them a bit, but hopefully not enough to show once it's installed on the 10T wheel. I also mounted my Pro 45s to the front wheels. Hopefully soon I can start putting this thing together!

What about these?

Early thin webbed?

I bought these for a restoration project after I got them I realized the part number is for a GT.

Cheers, Dave.
They look to be thin Dave. GT's, and 10T's used the same arm.

I've made some progress, although I didn't take pics of all of it. I put the trans back together, and this time I added a little oil, and now it spins smoother than spit.

I also put the rear arms together, along with most of the front end:

I just bought a black-tub RC10 with a JG monster truck conversion because it had some parts that I needed, namely a stealth trans for 10T #2 (I stole the stealth out of #2 for #1), and the correct ball cups for my turnbuckles. Once I harvest the best ball cups from the 10T and that RC10 I just got, I can assemble my turnbuckles and put those on, and get this thing more or less put together. Best of all, this RC10 that I just picked up had a pair of Pro-45 tires on it. :D I hope they're in as good of shape as they looked in the auction pics.

I also scored a great deal on 2 pairs of non-logo Pro 90s on some really nice rear wheels. The only issue with the wheels is that they were drilled in the rear to vent them, but I should have some other rear sections hanging around that I can use. Now I have 2 pairs of Pro-45s and non-logo Pro-90s, and enough new and like new wheels to go around.

About all I need now for this truck is a better B stamp chassis with offset battery tray, and a body.

Yesterday I got the Pro 90s mounted up to my new wheels, and parked them next to the Pro 45s. Nice looking set. :)

This week I made a little bit of progress. I'm using the original chassis for now until I can find a better one. I want to find an earlier B stamp with only the offset holes, but for now, this one is going to suffice. It's pretty clean, and would be a great chassis if it weren't for the enlarged holes.

Image

I also got enough ball ends between this truck, my other 10T and that buggy that I just picked up to do all of my turnbuckles after giving the ball cups a good bath:

I also spent a large chunk of my time today trying to mount that set of Pro 45s that were on the buggy I bought, but that's proven to be extremely difficult. The bead size on those tires has somehow stretched to the point where I can't get the center piece of the 3 piece wheels to fit around it. I had to use a sanding disk on my dremmel and carefully remove a LOT of the material on the inside of the bead until I got it to fit. So far I've only got one of the two tires done. I'll have pics once I get those done.
