Hey Speedwoble,

It's been a while on this thread, just curious how you're coming with all of your accessory projects? Because I'll keep buy what you're cranking out!

Just take my money already,
SJ/JD

Eyes fixated on the:

-Cab Gasket
-Stainless steel hose for the cross-over air line from the regulator to the air tank

No update in a while. I printed some cab gaskets and sent them to a member to try. I'm now with some extra time on my hands due to Covid, so I thought I would get back to this. However currently I am locked out of access to the 3D printer that makes them, so I can't print my own to try!
I do have a spare stainless airline, so I will try installing the air line on my own truck to verify fitment. Then i can get more of those made.

I welded up the jig to speed up the process of making cab tilt brackets and I cranked out a large batch. I also made 8 pairs for the 406/416 unimogs. All of these are currently at the powdercoater to get coated.

Lastly I borrowed a 3D scanner and will be scanning some parts. Backhoe bucket and Ripper shank done. Next I will scan the loader bucket and try to come up with a model for the quicktach that may be a little cheaper and require less individual fab work. I plan to scan the front end of the mog for designing my 18K lb winch mount that will fit with the loader. I plan to scan the Loader attachment at the front of the frame and the backhoe attachment at the rear for future attachment design. Anything else I should scan while I have a moment? I was thinking about the Engine and engine cover so I could see how tight it is for a future turbo install. However, based on how slowly I get to these things, that may be a few decades.

Today I 3D printed a bracket to go on the light switch to give me space for 3 switches for auxiliary lights. I currently have 2 rotating beacons and 2 floodlights. I need to study the wiring diagram to figure out where to pull power from, either tapped off the regular light switch, or a relay off of the circuit panel. These lights are both LED’s, so relatively low current, but I still need to measure it.

Then made a revised bracket for the low air horn/power port/USB charger with a hole for a mini switch. This way I can shut off the horn if I don’t need it, and hopefully remember to turn it back on.

That’s awesome sauce! I’ve always wanted to play with one of those scanners. +1 million for the quick-tach. Pull the trigger on that one.
