k guys, this is my base, im going to build up from here

first thing is im going to strip the frame down to nothing, then im going to have to straighten the front of it where it got bent and warped, after that ive got to brace the frame, its going to have cross bracing every 8 inches, then im gong to stretch the front, ive got to make a dash, make a hood, widen the fenders, mount tires, extend tie rods, remount front axle,lower the steering wheel, upgrade the tie rod ends, install new tranny, move the clutch, build wheelie bar, then i have to stip it down to bare metal and prime it, then paint it, there is alot more thats got to be done, but i cant remember it all right now

well, i spent most of the day today putting up a wall on the front of the barn to keep heat in and straightening up some, then i got the wood stove moved into the barn and got a good supply of wood, i started work on the mower, as of the moment i have the fenders foot rest and half the dash off of it, i was bout to start straightening the front end and bracing it when we got a call and ive spent the last 2 hours repairing a waterline in 28 degree weather, got back home and headed to the barn and a breeze hit me and i said screww it lol tomorrow im going to get more work done on it and ill get some pics also

Yea but it's usually good thick steel so it's an easy fix, about 3/16" thickness i think. Makes great for welding lol

true lol that one thing im glad about is i have lots of 3/16" flat steel from making knives, im going to get it straightened then fill in the big gaping hole where the axle went and strengthen it the best i can

well guys, not much work done today, had to get up at 6 and go help my brother figure out what was wrong with his truck, after figureing out it was the fuel pump, we had 2 choices, drop the full tank or move the bed, we moved the bed, then got the pump out, then we spent a hour trying to find the pump in a store in town, we finally found it, and got it put in and the bed put back on, then his wife called and they hgad busted pipes, so then i had to go help repair pipes in 18 degree weather under a house......then i got home and he asked me to fabricate a heat shield for his fourwheeler, took me half a hour to get it made, then i decided to say screw it and came in and drank a pot of coffee,....and then the mower started callin my name so i went to work on her, i got the front axle cut out, and i went on and cut out a 5" gap to remove the previous owners "repairs" and filled it in with metal, i got one side done, then decided to come in cause the temp. started dropping again and im wore out lol

as you can see, i got it patched nice and clean, and this side is straight now


and here is a pic of what i cut out

i will get the other side done tomorrow, and then i can finally start on stretching the front out
