PostSubject: Bow Tie Mud Guy : DIXON BUILD [2018 Build-Off Entry]   Thu Feb 01, 2018 11:42 am

bow tie mud guy here and this is my entry for the 2018 build off !!
1970 sears with the 633a high and low trans , Honda gx 340 11 hp engine , craftsman LT 1000 hood and rear fenders - the build plan goes like this !! im naming this build DIXON it will become a zombie assault rig ( theme build ) it will get the 11 hp honda , extended up front , bigger tires up front , a complete cab with wire mesh wrapped all around with weapons ports to fight off predators from the drivers seat !! the LT 1000 hood and fenders will be custom fit to the sears chassis , small pulley swap , enclosed back rack with weapons storage - sledge hammer , base ball bat , bow or what ever kind you may have , led lights all around , car alternator , front bumper will be a cross between a cow catcher and bull bar with winch mount , custom paint work !! all around just a fun build we can take to events around town and show off !!

That sounds...interesting and fun!!!  Good luck dude!
(LOL, every time I see that name it reminds me of the Mason-Dixon line, which in turn reminds me of the song, "Dixie's Land".)

Somewhere in my Scorpion thread, someone commented on weaponry, It's allowed since it's not covered in the rules, LOL. I think. Or it could have been mentioned to me somewhere else. But that is what was told to me during my build, LOL. Would be a worth to ask though. I could be wrong. Smile

Glad to see you here and can not wait to see the LT Hood mod. Body work is one thing I tend to avoid but this year I hope to change that a bit.

As long as you arent doing drive-bys I dont see anything wrong with making shooting ports. Maybe leave the real guns out of the glamour shots though, a cheap airsoft prop may be a good investment.

LOL, you'll do great. Any barbed wire in there with the wire mesh? This mower when complete as described will be super cool. It's awesome you are already planning post build-off with the machine. There is a "zombie response team" that drives around OKC area. If I can find some pix of their truck, I'll post them, see if it gives anymore inspiration. Although it does not seem like you are short any.

DIXON BUILD UPDATE #1
well today i mounted the GX340 , had to build a engine plate , got the clutch and idler pulleys done , got the LT1000 hood and rear fenders mounted , had to take the air box of the engine for clearance also had to cut out the head light mount out for clearance but was able to retain the lens . had to cut the rear fenders for tire clearance no big deal looks better that way also started the back rack for the cage to mount to , i was dying to drive it so i pushed it out of the shop , fired it up jumped in the seat with a big smile and put it in reverse to find out it is bad !! 3rd , reverse and 2nd are all bad !! so only first gear , at least it moves LOL , i have already found a 633a for it and picking it up this week end !! just a small set back but i guess thats what happens when you get a rig that was not running when you get it !! NO BIG DEAL IT WILL GET HER NEW LEGS NEXT WEEK !!

You're doing a good job turning that sears into something that is heavily modified and unique.

It is unique. Mating a newer with the old to create something new! Very nice.
