So did some work again, Since the last time I posted I've done a lot of cleaning an paiting and not much of assembly.
I've moved and so did the halftrack to a new storage so that took up a lot of time and still not everything is there.

Butt... the engine ran and it ran sweet! I've then cleaned it and painted it and now it is back in the frame!
The rear axle housing is back in the frame and so is the bogie frame!
I've now moved on to a lot of thing, I'm looking into the wiring and looking for bearings for the transfercase and transmission.

I've also started to clean the firewall so I can start to assemble the cab and everything around it.

That's all for now  ;D

And in she goes,
I'm still waiting for the frame sides but when they come I can lift up the front of the engine a bit and get the bolts in.
The oilfilter needs a paint still, Should it be red or engine colour?

I’m very envious of your frame, it looks so good.
