The steering rods for the two front axles having arrived I started the installation.
These components came directly from China and were ordered together with other elements. The quality is not bad, but I still have to make some adjustments to remove excessive play.



Partially assembled



Fully assemnbled and ready to be installed.



Of course, the cabin had to be disassembled for installation. The frame had to be drilled to receive the M2 screws.



And then installed the cabin again

As usual, until no problems!
While testing the steering angle I noticed that the front wheels touch the inner plastic protections...this again because of the high suspension kit.
These parts will have to be cut in the future.



After mounting the steering I continued with the mudguards of the second front axle.
They come from the same Chinese supplier, they are made of aluminium and I find them of superb quality with a perfect finish.





Of course a difficulty had to arise to keep the building attractive.
In short, nothing too serious, except for a small adjustment needed to keep the steering rod from touching the mudguard.





And here's de final result.

No, i didn't took that option for the simple and good reason, that the rims are very hard to find. The only compatible ones for such axles where the LESU's and i didn't like how they look like.

The axles i have look like this :
