If you could do that Stretch, that would be awesome. Thank you.
Could you change the title of the topic to Dynamark Lawn Tractor (or something like that)

Thanks again Stretch Very Happy

Lookin good. Good thinkin on shoving all the vids in one post. I might add since this is your "build" It might be a good to put your thread in the builds section.

IIRC, if a paint has heavy metals in it I.E. Cadmium, they have to put it on the package. Most of the issues with toxicity would be related to that I'd believe, as the carrier (oil, acetone, etc) would have evaporated. Keep in mind this information is best guess based on my time in art school.

At least by filming my progress, if i where to pass out while welding at least you'd be able to call the medics out to help me, The joys of the internet age.

I will have a look on the tin for how toxic it is.

I'd like to know your thoughts on what I should do next.
Should I weld then rebuild or rebuild then weld?

depends what you want it to do - reguardless for offroad or speed- it should be reinforced.

Most hot rodders fabricate and build the ride to the way they want it, then take it apart, finish painting and then reassemble it.

On the GT murray i plan on reinforcing it completely for eventual updates.
