I loved this build the moment I seen the thread for it. Looks good sir. If/when you're ready to sell it, may I have first dibs on it?

I figured it's along shot that it would be parted with, but it never hurts to inquire

Thats looking amazing already! Can't wait to see all the rigging.

Hahaha, yeah i shouldn't have gotten such an old cop car for the department. I just wasn't sure a crown vic or a caprice would be weird enough for my town.

I think a Matador was the perfect choice! AMC's, VW's and a Fiero, how could you explain something as tame as a Ford or a Chevy?

Frizzen,
I'm thinking about something different for the left side winch that will raise and lower the sling. Most all of the crawler winches are just too big to fit in the available space and look somewhat correct. I'm going to experiment with a micro 360 deg servo with a custom machined drum similar to what I made for the manual boom winches. It will be interesting to see how well it will lift.

LOL... first dibs?!!! Only us Hoosiers and those that have actually met the man get that honor.

Seriously, I just can't wait to see it up close this January (if Dennis is still going) after just now running across the thread full of pics from the September meet. http://rctruckandconstruction.com/sh...ad.php?t=12536 Amazing trucks to drool over... plus, COE's have always caught my attention first.

And also that is if I have something to bring too.

Thanks Jeff.
Unless Mother Nature really plays a trick on us, I'll be there in January as a newly retired "official old fart." I'm looking forward to seeing you, been quite a while!
Don't worry about having something to bring with you, I've got plenty of things you can drive around.

Yes, it certainly is a work to drool over

I figured some 360 servo winches tucked under the bed would probably be the way to go. I've seen some with the bolt-on drum like my dragline, or some that have the drum inside the windowed servo case to save space.

Panther, come to the meet even if you don't have a vehicle yet. If you ask i'm sure a lot of us will let you drive some stuff around. It might just be rusty junk though...
