After a hiatus I'm back on the project. Losing the use of one shop space, putting everything into storage. A brutal winter in this area. Now found a new shop space and continuing on.

My first time welding. Just tacking in bits until a pro can come in with some real firepower.

Differential mounting:

Differential cross member and seat mounting:

Motor mounts, radius arm mount tabs:

Clutch & brake master/pedal assembly mounting:

Kinda funny seeing how far back the seats sit without a body or drivetrain.

Rear shock mounting:

making progress
I bought 2 sets of Ufab welding squares from fireball tools and a plasma tracer kit from rotton leonard. I haven't seen the Ufab listed on his website for a while. A friend is a pro welder and is putting it all together. one set for him and one for me. I made a new set of jag wooden patterns to make the jag stuff with his plasma. My fab shop is 300 miles south. We bought a 40 X 50 quanset building from an estate sale . still on pallets a few years ago. I need the engineered drawings to get a building permit and need to decide where to put it up Either at the step-son's 1.5 acre house or down on the farm that has 3 phase power for irrigation pumps.

It is a hard decision to decide where to locate the shop. My own personal selection based on your question would be to Move to the Farm! First there is 3 phase there. If you ever want to do milling or Turning most if not all of the good equipment runs on 3 Phase! There are ways around that by using converters to generate three phase and such. However if you already have it why not take advantage of it.

The second plus for the farm is the fact that Farm implies some distance from neighbors. That means less complaints from neighbors about running a air tool or something noisy. or running engines. The other place imply's to me a residential location. Also, You may have a better luck in permitting on a farm. Call it a feeding shed..

Ok there is my vote...

That is an interesting idea you have for mounting your headlights.
Never seen that before.
I wonder how they will stand up to all the road bumps.
I'd be interested to read your feedback once it is on the road and clocking up a few miles.
I hope it works out for you.
