    Maybe there is a library or resources section on this forum site where the free version of your build documents might go eventually!

    Got the skin color filament late this afternoon. Could not wait to see how the seat would turn out.

    In two days, I shall attempt to print the top.

    Awesome. What is the difference between the material in the seats and the rest?

    Only the color, it's the same base ingredient: PLA.

    Closer to end though!

    Here's the top. I'm disappointed in the fit of the top. I think it's the worst part of the whole truck. I think it is due more because of the other moving parts that are not rocket precision. The windshield is not at the exact position it is in the drawing, so are the roof tubes. Which accounts for the discrepancy.

    Anywho, here it is:

    And for the last piece of the puzzle, I'm now testing the clear filament. Here what it looks like in the filament form

    It's pretty darn clear, but once printed, it loose the clearness and looks more like a bathroom privacy glass. If someone is incline to put a led, it will shine through, but it will never be clear.

    "Wow. Look at that!!" says the Mrs.

    top - might be an acquired taste? I still cringe at the debate between hardtop and softop. Maybe let it grow on you? Doesn't look too bad from here.

    Can you polish the bathroom into a window finish?

    This thing is A+ man!!

    We'll see how the top fit on the final version. Maybe the assembly will be better.

    Speaking of, here are all the printed parts:

    And a close up of the printed transparent headlight.

    Don't think I can polish the bathroom into a window finish.

    I will film the assembly to try to make a build video. Should take a couple of days before I'm done.

    What a cool project! What a ton of work. This has to be very satisfying.
