I got most of the parts lined up and a plan for what I want to do. Temp around here lately has been 0-15f. Hope it isnt this cold 30 days from now. I have heat in the shop but it takes a long time to get it warmed up. I learned my lesson on the last deal, I will try not to work on this more than a few hours at a time. It will take that long to get the shop up to temp, so it may be late march before I get started on it. I still have work that needs to be done on the last one anyway

It's pretty cold here, but I got a heated shop to work in

I think I have most of the main parts here to build what I want. Only had to order the peerless 700.

I'm in had enough sitting on the side lines the last few years. Life is back settled out with new Camera and stuff in the mail. Along with new shirts for video work. And a bunch of new ideas to test out.

Here is an off the wall question, would the 116 still fall under the 50% rule? I stated at the beginning of the '17 build what I wanted to accomplish with the build and with it being a scratch build, I am almost up to where most guys are starting with for a pulley swap and paint job. It is eating $25 worth of belts in 5 minutes and the body work is horrible due to the rush job to finish on time on the last build off. I wanted this to be a car show cruiser and the only one that I can go to where it wont look like crap is Greaserama. I also wanted to do mud drags and Gt pulls and it aint even close to that point yet.

Wait, you call that bodywork horrible?!? I couldn't even imagine what you would consider passable!

It is a 20 footer at best. You get much closer than that, it looks real bad. I wanted to blend in the seam at the foot boards and you can still see the crappy welds.

Man, taking a break from building was much needed. I'm starting to get the itch to get to building again! Just a month to go!

I'm not exactly sure what this next build's going to turn out like for me. Maybe semi professional, but it's probably still going to have some of that backyard junk type stuff to it lol.

Looks very similar in the frame to my 74 Craftsman that I am going to try and do this year as well!

Thinking of taking my roper and making it into a "pickup truck" of the mower world. Extending it like this guy did and putting a dump bed on the back, maybe a cab, probably a twin-engine, something like that would be really good for hauling manure, dirt, fencing, gravel, etc. and be really useful around my place.

Tell me what you think of that idea.

I've seen the video of that thing. It's pretty cool. Has a V-twin in it, sounds real nice.

Sounds like a cool idea. Sounds like not only it would be fun to build, but functional for the long haul!

Sure will! We are trying to dam up creeks and stuff, and IDK if you've been around sheep, but they produce about 5 pounds of manure every day, and we have to dump it way off along a fenceline or else parasites will grow and infect the sheep. So that would be really helpful! Thinking of making it 4x6, if I can get an extra tranny and come up with the money for 2 extra tires.
