Suspension almost ready for wheels

I finished making all the bogie arms, and I cut all the springs, so now they just need to be installed onto the bogie assemblies.

Here is the spring I used for all the suspension springs.  I got it from a steel yard in the scrap section, and payed by the pound, so I’d say it cost me, maybe $1 for 2 of them.. and turns out 1 is plenty for making the 6 springs I need.  It’s even rubber coated, and already green.

So I cut it up on the chop saw, and they are ready to go.

So I just need to install the bogie arms with springs, and then finish the 24 wheels (getting closer, slowly but surely),  make some spacers,  and we are talking rolling chassis time.
