Don't over think this.

4 pcs of 2 x 6 and 4 wheels.
Use the bolt holes in the casters to bolt all the pieces together and then add a couple of bits after you put the cab on it to stabilize.

It really doesn't need to be a tank.

Ya, it's been about 18 months now. No slow down in the near future. All base boards, casings, painting, wall panels, and then 2 washrooms, and a kitchen island to do. C'mon man, I want it to end......
Yesterday 10:17 AM
shine well my interior panels are made. what a leaning experience . the board was much harder to work with than i thought. not bad but there are some quirks to it . cutting and heating were a eye opener. when cutting it can shatter . cuts much easier when warmed up. a lite cut first is easier to do and the following cut will follow it very well . on heating i found it does not like the heat gun. very easy to over heat . i found that by using my space heater to warm the piece evenly it would shape easier.
all in all not too bad. hopefully i will get better with it. still light years ahead of black board or plywood.

next will be sewing up panels. after which i will likely change my user name to Flipper .

It takes an hour to get the temp up to 58, which is OK for working with a light jacket, and then it runs for another hour to bring all that metal up to 62, which is all the higher I take it.
I believe they are still at it on the Ivo car, I don't know for sure.

That grill shell is awsome Brian! A true work of art. The first thing I thought when I saw Russell's bike was "what will it look like after he has to stick a radiator on it." Cool! is the answer!

And to be clear, I didn't make this from scratch. He had someone else start it, I finished it.

So sad, and like David, I feel sorry for the guy who hit her, as well as for her.

I got out in the garage and finished up my brothers radiator box. I honestly don't know how you guys do it who live where it's colder than my home. 50 degrees out in the garage and I can barely take it.
