lok & rol chassis.

Postby jmass » Wed Feb 20, 2013 2:07 pm

just received my f3 and gp9 chassis and neither one come with any directions at all. i also noticed that the f3 chassis fuel tank is a solid piece of the original frame. how the hell am i supposed to get that off? any help and pictorials would be much appreciated. they both run very well. joe

any body on the board have any directions on how to cut out the the gp9 and f3 without destroying the diecast frames themselfs? lok&roll did not send any info on how too carry out this project and ive already destroyed a geep and f unit frame. my only tools include a very small dremmel kit and utility knives. am i missing stuff to getthe frames to fit snugly?

The way I do it is the way Elmer recommended with the PVM power kits. Cut the sideframe off close with a saw, then lay it on a flat surface covered with a piece of sandpaper. Carefully sand down the nubs on the back until it's flat, and if you're careful you can sand it down a little thinner so the brake shoes look better.

Join the club (dremel in my case)! Two chassis and counting.....at least they're cheap on ebay.

Not yet. I only have one chassis currently and I'm using its gears and wheels on my U Boat.

At the GP9 is no diecast to mill. Only the frame of plastic gets a hole with the measurement of the inner sides from the hood/housing. Then fits the chassis into the model. You can glue the frame to the housing.

I have ask Lok-n-Roll for a manual for a F3-chassis.

Thanks for the picture. i tried a utility knive for that cut and ended up botching it up. also, the chassis actually extends past the fuel tank and i would hate to try to file it down being so close to the trucks. wish they would of sent some sort of directions. i will contact them again.
