Lots of updates...start with the base

So, I've been busy and haven't had time to post any updates. Got a spare evening tonight, so I thought I'd catch you guys up. We'll start off with frame work. I had to notch the base plate so the body would fit:


Next up, laying out and cutting out the holes for the wheels:

Now you'd think that with a straight edge, I'd be able to cut a straight line.  Not the case.  Apparently I own the crappiest jigsaw made.  On the first two short cuts, the saw ran true, but the blade moved almost half an inch out of line.  I wound up doing a much better job free-handing the remaining cuts:

I'll cut this into several smaller posts to make it easier to search for stuff later :)
