How do you best build a turret?

Post by baracken » 29 Jul 2014, 15:53

Hi, My team have been thinking of getting a vehicle but I was wondering what car would be the best to have a turret on?
Do you guys bolt the turret on the roof and use the sunroof?
The choyces is pretty much between an SUV like an Ford Explorer or a pickup like the Mazda 2600.

Well it depends on your economy and what kind of vehicle you are after, there are loads of possibilites, the easiest is to base it on a pickuptruck and build a roof over the flatbead where you can mount your turret

That sounds like a good way, there are usually aftermarket roof things for most pickups, would that be sufficient?
