I spent hours working on one bushing last night and it still won’t take the kingpin. It’s getting close but won’t let me slide the pin through the bushing, and I have 3 more bushings to go after I finish that one. Either the stones are worn out or these are very hard brass bushings. I think they are actually bronze rather than brass, but still, not supposed to be that hard. I was using cutting oil and everything so unless the stones are worn out already from the axle boss I’m at a loss.
Moving on to the scale mockup TGS2 I found some more card stock to use for the floor. There was an expired TGIFriday mailer under my computer that was printed on extra thick stock. I have revised the clearance cutout for the front tires, so now all I have to do is find time to cut it out. I think if I skip a day blogging I’ll have the time to do a couple of floors, maybe?
I’m going to have to switch to my backup scale bucket body because I have already modified my first one to build the Mini Sprint-T. That means I have to open the chopped T-Coupe rod model. I really haven’t decided what I want to build from that one. There are so many choices… And I have really no time to build models. Models from boxed kits that is, mockup models are required for, reasons.
And because I need to get to work on something I’m closing this one down now.
