So I have been playing in the sand alittle bit trying to make things just to see if I could. But mosty now that the weathers nice I've been cutting and welding on the 59 panel it's what got me started on the 36 hp madness in the first place. Maybe this year if all go well I finish up a few of the round oil sumps after the Honey Do List gets finished. Sometime I have to remind myself that I do have a great wife if not she will.
Vaughn just to let you know your drawings kick ass make me some patterns.

Some of the see if I could. And alot of pictures to look at just for fun.
