Well, thanks to a heads-up from another forum member, a set of open-horned tracks arrived this past week from Backyard Armor. I had been waiting for as much to become available and can now resume work.

OK, so how about adding the drain hole under the gun barrel:

and the slot under the escape hatch?

Hi David,

Thanks much for the drain hole reference. Still unclear as to the orientation of the slot.

Thanks again,
Cody

It cuts straight through the base of the side armour, under the escape hatch. Here's a diagram with the hinge welded on. You can just about see the slot behind it.

Hi Roderick,

Thanks. I use a Nikon Coolpix 5400 while the images are refined through Photoshop.

Try to ask a civil question and get a troll like response.



If you care to pay a little more attention to the dates of topics you'll see this one was started by the author, Cody Grayland in 2004. His last posting in this thread was June 2006 so he's unlikely to respond. He hasn't posted here, if you look at his profile since 2007, so it would appear he is no longer an active member of this web site.....soon to be joined by another given their postings to date
