Glad to see the tractor conversion is coming along pretty well. *cough*firetruck*cough*
When he showed up at the shop, he told me about his veteran status, how he lost his eye.....I felt bad for him, & had to put him to work. He's a lil rough at times & has taken a couple sideboards off of the trucks while loading.

Tractor, hopefully will be completed this weekend, & Mack truck too.

Parts fir firetruck are still on a SLOW boat from China. I thought I had enough ordered. They were suppose to be here TWO days ago. I've opened an ITEM NOT RECEIVED case on evilbay, am awaiting a refund fir them. I've re-ordered parts from a different seller. Soon as the parts ALL arrive me, I hope to start on that project.

I got a box of parts yesterday. The 4200 upgrades that I ordered from Rimrock arrived me. I've got my work cut out, to get them installed, & get the machine in operating order once again.

Today, I made a lil more progress on the New Bright tractor conversion. I soldered together 6 of the 2/3A 1800MAH batteries to make a pack for it.

Then I tried to install the cheap ESC that I had laying around that I had previously bought from China. It DIDN'T arrive with any instructions for it. When I hooked it up, I had the battery on the side that SHOULD have been the motors supply side. My hopes of getting the tractor finished his weekend went up in a lil puff of smoke! I now have to await for some more ESC units to arrive on a SLOW boat from China HOPEFULLY this one arrives with some installation instructions with it!

It'll get here, eventually. I remember it took the US postal service a LONG time to deliver the Calendar to me. I remember that there were customers overseas that got them before me, & they were sent the same day.

I see that www.ruralking.com has blow out pricing on Bruder toys. Makes me wonder if they are going to continue to sell them. With low prices like those, I fear they may be liquidating their supply in preparation to discontinue selling them. I hope they DON'T do that. they were my go to place for reasonable prices on Bruder toys.

No progress has been made on my builds. After the ESC went up in a lil poof of smoke, my motivation went with it.

Rural King is like a bigger Tractor Supply Company

https://www.ruralking.com/catalogsea...sult/?q=Bruder
Holy crap, thanks for that heads up!

Edit, ya might not have TSC around either. It's kind of a general farm and homestead store: tractor stuff, welding, chainsaws, guns, hunting, clothes, toys, cooking, canning, repair hardware, some grocery... i can't go there often, they have stuff i like
