I will be putting a oil pressure, engine temp, volt meter, fuel gauge, and tachometer on this. Wondering if they should be marine. Those are a lot more expensive I can make a flip down splash sheild to cover gauges when washing. The oil pressure and engine temp will be mechanical, the rest electrical

Ordered a few gauges including an ammeter, correct me If I'm wrong an ammeter tell you how many amps your accessories are drawing of of your battery? That would be useful with a lot of lights and such, but I'll also be getting a volt meter

Mtd fenders and hood most likely. There going to be modified tho, fenders probably widened or just flares. And a from nose peice of the hood will be custom made so there's no plastic on the hood to crack.

Tumbled the idea of direct steering for this but red pointed out it may be hard to steer when I get it in a bind with bigger tires on it so I thought how to make the most durable but gears steering. Going to be using a similar design as mtd but a lot better. Using tranny gears out of an old spicer will have pics if the steering shaft gear and the actual gear that will have the tierod goin to the from spindle.

So for months my frame has been sitting in the shop bare metal cuz I wasn't quit done welding, but it will be a lot easier to sand primer off then make a new one because of rust holes lol. So I will prime the frame today I'll post pics later.
