I use tremclad on the frame. Primer. black , and clear

The red is obtained with Duplicolor aluminum High performance wheel paint, with a coat of clear, and duplicolor Metalcast Red, over top with an additional coat of clear. Everything is laid over Tremclad Primer or sometimes I'll use the Rust-Check primer



I like the wheel paint becuase it dries with a shimmery look as opposed to metal flake. A coat of clear really helps to bring it out.

The Red and Purple so far have given me pretty good results. I think the next custom project I do, I'll try the blue

How far off are you from completely rebuilding it?

It was originally a keep busy winter project to use up some old junk laying around.

It was to be a racer till the local sanctioning body said no, with out serious mods.

It will go forward fast and stable, no reverse.

Best application is full bore mowercross. Its got no gears, just a clutch and sprockets.

I'll probably give it to my nephews or trade it for something.

I'll take it for a test rip up the alley, and might be able to borrow some land for some serious testing.

recent medical situations have come up that limit my fun

Still recovering from hernia surgery.

Sorry, no I don't.

Engine is in. Ita's a 13hp Honda GX390 Clone, sold by Princess Auto.
The driveline is connected and adjusted. Steering is in and tight, but not set yet.
Mastercraft Off road project - Page 4 Dscn3940

The U-joints are 3/4" shaft keyed joints on high strength 3/4" shaftsI drilled through the U-Joints and shafts and installed grade 5 bolts in double shear instead of keys. These are way bigger than the ones I installed in the Cobra

Newer Rear Tires. Dunlop KT877A. Cost me 40 bucks, but still cheaper than the alternative.
Mastercraft Off road project - Page 4 Dscn4010


Dashboard is in, and most of the wiring is complete. Will need to change out the ignition switch with one that has a powered terminal when the key is on. but still has a closed connection when the key is off to kill the engine. Red light is low oil indicator (no engine kill). The toggle switch is for the lights. It lights up when the lights are on. Still have to drill a 2-1/16" hole for the voltmeter.

The underside of the dash

Front end with the stock front tires and rims. The rims are the original finish, with a coat of clear.

Also, just measured the tread depth on the tires, and they have 80% of the tread left.

Got some work done

Mastercraft Off road project - Page 4 Dscn4017

Got the new tires mounted and installed. Cost me 18 bucks each to have the old tire removed, and the new one mounted. 20 buck a piece for tires with 85% tread left, plut 18 bucks each to mount, and I still got a good deal.
getting Side panels painted, I've been having trouble getting good coverage on some of the old painted parts, even after a good scuffing and chemical cleaning, stripping parts to bare steel helped a bit but not much

Mastercraft Off road project - Page 4 Dscn4018

Picked up a new battery, smaller than I wanted, but this thing has no electric extras, so it should be fine. It will fit in the space provided.

Mastercraft Off road project - Page 4 Dscn4019

Installed the voltmeter gauge.

Also got some work done on the air intake

You've done a great job so far, but your building heavy duty I see , so I'm just wondering, will the 6.5 horse be enough?
