Hey guys, I wanted to share a quick video of my new toy.

Alittle background before I link the video. I've been playing with the idea of building a mower into something cool. I've got a craftsman II with a 10hp Tecumseh that broke the pulley that turns the blade shaft. I didn't think that was suited for offroad, so it's just sitting in the garage. I've got a Craftsman LT1000 that I use to mow the lawn with a 15 HP Briggs and a 5 speed transaxle.

Lately I've been watching FearlessFront's videos and got really interested in building something that could go offroad. While browsing craigslist this week, I found an LT1000 with a 17 HP Briggs that the kid started tearing up to make a romper. I ended up picking it up for $40. I need to replace the tie rod, I want to replace the hacked up steering wheel, and repair/replace/fabricate a new hood.

Thanks. The hood's pretty bad and would take a ton of bending to get it straight. I'm almost considering getting a steel drum and cutting it down to make a new hood. All I have is the shell. I didn't get the front grill part where the headlights are.

I'll start a build thread as soon as I get the chance to work on it some more. Hopefully that will be tomorrow or Tuesday.
