    I got the wire on Ebay from a guy in Cali. The wire was $4. He charged $3.75 to ship it. When it arrived it was in a plain white envelope with a 44 cent stamp on it. So he is basically charging $7.31 for it. By the way, the $4 was a winning bid. He had another auction that had the same wire for $26. It looked like some people thought he was selling the winch.

    Well I got off my fanny and worked on fitting the driver into his rig this evening. Now I need to work on some seat belts. Here are some pics of him taking his place in the driver's seat.

    I may run back out to that same spot this week with my other camera so I can record some video.

    If you do I'll join you. I'd like to make a good long video but my camera lacks severely in the memory department.

    Now that I have the driver in his seat, it is now time for him to drive the truck to articulate like it's 1:1. Here is a nice example of the 1:1's capabilities.
