View Full Version : Custom Made -by xmodcanuck

I really like my job. For several years I ran a CNC machine making cabinets and countertops. I work somewhere else now, but I run the same machine and I do basically the same thing, although I also make signs now too. At my last job I made a bunch of xmods wheels with different offsets like mini-z wheels. I made these at my new job because we use a lot of clear acrylic.

I've been fortunate that I've been able to do this type of stuff on the side, just for fun. My new boss finds it a bit funny that I make these tiny things on such a big machine.

I really like the PN interchangeable body mount, but they don't make clips for all bodies (and can't be expected to). So I decided to make some of my own. These are made of 1/8" lexan. I made some spacers out of 1/16" lexan.

Glad you like them. Anyone is free to request something, the only problem is that if I don't have the body I can't really measure anything or test fit anything. I do plan on making clips for every body I have

The 458 body I have was given to me because the front mount area broke. The clip I made fit my body just great......but it didn't fit an unbroken 458. So I borrowed a body and made a new front clip that fits.

Another of the racers in our group also had his 458 body break in the same area where the clip mounts.
I think/hope this little addition will help. I machined a piece from lexan that surrounds and reinforces the front mount area.

I know it looks like it's dragging, but it's not. It's just sitting on my ottoman.

Since this is one of my favourite bodies, I had to do the Subaru.

And this one was tough. The stock front clip is so small I wasn't sure I could use the PN mount.

The body is technically sitting on the PN mount, but it sits proper so I'm good with it.

I really like my job, but I sure hate the industry. Not very consistent. I recently lost my job but somehow ended up getting rehired at an old job.

Found some lexan kicking around and I'm back at it.
