Ream the Holes

RC Car Action - - HOW TO PICK AND MOUNT A TRAIL TRUCK BODY -

Now you need to ream out the holes for the body posts so the body can be at­tached.

If you are us­ing a ream that has hole sizes marked on the side, mea­sure the post size be­fore ream­ing so you know where you have to stop. For ex­am­ple, if your post mea­sures 5mm in di­am­e­ter, then you stop ream­ing when the 5mm line reaches the body.

If you don’t have marks on your ream, make a hole that is slightly smaller than the size of the body post. Place the body on one of the posts so you can get an idea of how much more you have to go. Re­move a small amount, then try it again and re­peat un­til the body slides over the post. Once you have one post hole per­fect, place the ream in the hole and mark a line on the edge of the ream along the edge of the Lexan. Then you can quickly ream the rest of the holes us­ing that line as your stop­ping point.

Some body reams have lines on them to show you the sizes of the hole it will make.
