Hello folks, I haven't been on here in a bit but my project '88 Yardman went from being a offroader to a Hot-Rod inspired cruiser. I'm basing it off of a '32 Ford that was built in the 1950's.

Plans so far:
Red Rims
Flat Black Paint
No Fenders
Custom Velocity Air Intake Stack
Custom Side Pipe (Duals?)
Hood Louvers (remove 5 inches around bottom of hood)
Lowered Stance
Headlight Drop Bracket W/ 4" Lights
Moon Style Fake Gas Tank On Front
More To Come.

It will be nice to see something done in classic Hot Rod style. The "rat rod" thing is over-done to tears. I look forward to your progress.

I will haha.

On another note, I did find another mower just sitting in the woods to the side of someones yard near my house, It appears to be a late '90s Chraftsman, and that will either become the Hot Rod project, Or if i can find a ATV engine suspension trans and axle then its gunna be one badass offroader, and then the yardman will either be retired and but in storage or turned into the Hot Rod.
