Thanks bud, I think I have more luck than skill. I always wanted to learn how to weld so I thought this would make for a good practice session

Wes, you better say that You and Henry were the one to convince me to build this thing from scratch.

I am having a blast making it.

Well, they are kinda all over. NAPA has them, Ebay has them, but I would track down a farm store of some sort and you will have your pic. Ebay has them used all the time, and that is the cheapest way to score one for sure. Maybe try craigslist too. They are out there, those are a few places to look.

Thanks Jeff! It has been fun if not anything else. I would like to be done with the steel work by Christmas. Then I can start working in a medium I understand... WOOD!

I hope to get the drawers and boxes done over the winter, then once it starts to warm up again get it into paint. The problem is by the time I take a saturday on it, I realize what I needed to have on hand and have to wait a few days to get it!

Propane mounts and fenders are next.
