Hi All,
Well I've finally finished building my Jeep. It has been a really interesting build and I must say that toylander do a great job with the plans.
I would like to thank everyone who helped by awnsering questions and offered advise and inspiration. The many people who post on the forum are a lot of help to first time builders. I would also like to thank Mick Sutton for the nomenclature. It added a nice finishing touch.
Here are the pictures of the finished product.
The wiring runs in this box under the floor.

The dash looks great with the nomenclature added.

The grandchildren are going to love this!




The test drive went well and the key fob operated shutdown works from about 20 feet in front and about 50 feet back and both sides. ( the front signal is partially blocked by 2 batteries mounted there). I still need to do an endurance test on the batteries but may leave that to the grandkids.
Happy building to all who are in the process.

Hi Andy
Did you make the sleeves for the rear wheels to go onto the scooters transaxle yourself?

I have a retired engineer friend who does mine.

Hi Peter,
I have a lathe and turned the bushings but had a friend do the key ways.

Grandchildren introduced to the jeep this weekend. Many happy customers!

Driving lesson. 2 1/2 and figured out gearstick and throttle in minutes. May have to disconnect the horn though!

Repaying mom's taxi service.
