Not sure if this how-to will fit the taste of the most serious collectors, but if you want something you could use and have fun with, then maybe this will help you.
Thing is I was in need of a pair of shocks for a Brat chassis I am working on nowadays, and was not willing to spend the costs of the original shocks for it. So I had to get my brain working again and tried to find a solution with the extra bits and junk I have here in my parts box. And this is what I come up with. I used a pair of damaged Bull Head shocks, two nuts, two shock ends from the Mini kit, two bronze bits from the Clod Buster monster truck, and two Grasshopper shock cylinders. The springs were given to me by Crash Cramer and have no clue what model they fit (or if they're Tamiya at all).
Well, I hope this will be of use to some TCer someday.
You all have a great Sunday! :)
