    Default Baja time

    Sticking a thread up lads. So my baja 5b. Got this second hand my Mrs bought it me for Christmas. But! Couldn't keep her mother closed(bless her cotton socks) so I have been able to work on it before.

    Firstly this rig came withe standards electronics. Kraken cage mint condition. Turtle racing rear shock brace and a 30.5 ddm conversation new. Oh and proline trenchers all round on rims I don't know.
    Started my stripping the thing bit by bit to check its integrity. Had to change a shock shaft as the nylon Ball mount had warped from a crash, so I rebuilt them all with fresh oil 30w in the front, got 5w to try in the rear. Cleaned and greased the gears and tread locked the 💩 out of it😂😂

    1 of the pins had sheared off on the dog bone so upgraded to FLM bones and cups. Couldn't bring myself to spend 179 on the phat dads(sorry gent) ha ha

    Also got some hostile boots too as the others were gash

    Stay tuned

    Finally got round to putting the new cups and dog bones in rebuilt the rear shocks.

    See you later to the old ones. Just got to fit my kill switch. Then I can start on the new panels for the kraken cage

    Think I might paint the cage and panels. Going to make some metal panels too let them rust and clear coat them. 😊
