Steel Soldiers now has an offical calendar available, read more about it at: Steel Soldiers 2021 calendar
Ok. Cool.Thanks! I'm not sure about a daily driver, but I will drive it on the road.. It's hard to figure out what the parts are.. I mean, the ball joints for example- they are off of a civilian vehicles, but I have no clue what! Same with the steering rack.. (The rack is damaged, and needs to be replaced) but that is the joys of a prototype! It will be a very long road, but it will be worth it! My goal is for it to be completely done in time for the 2018 MVPA convention that the KILROY club (that I am Vice President of) will be hosting in Louisville, KY again! (I'm kind of excited if you can't tell) lol
I might have to check out Napa.. They are all chain stores around here, but if you get the right guy (usually the older guy lol) you can find some stuffOk. Cool.
Ball joints, tie rode ends, shocks, stuff like that Napa will be your friend. Just take the old one in and they will usually help to find a match. Just go to a old Napa (motor part and bearings) and the will usually help you.
If your ever down my way when it's done holler and I'll get out the RZR and we can go ride.
I have seen small eagle tugs built for the military the same way Chrysler 3 speed transaxle attached to a perkins diesel engineOn a recent trip to look over a military vehicle armor collection, I stumbled across this little Beauty tucked over beside the building..
It was a prototype and we believe only 2 were ever built!
It was built by Continental motors
And has a BMW m21 diesel. Dodge k-car transaxle turned sideways, and BMW differentials front and rear to make it 4x4. It's kinda rough, but really cool!
