      Here are some update shots of the stroller..This is all done with a drill press welder and basic hand tools and no machine work ...what ever we can find in the scrap box.. the coils are from an electric wheel chair and the moon tank is made from 2 broken aluminum ball bats...Talk about "field expedience" May not be true to scale but its still cool.... more to come..

    I get more enjoyment from building something like this using found and odd parts than following any set of instructions.
    Great job.

    "How is your project coming? Anxious to see what you have done so far...."

    I was going to finish the chassis over the weekend but when I went to the workshop we decided to fix the tractor to save $2500
    at the dealers and then converting 2 more "devices" to fire blanks which was a paying job. Also my camera is dead but I'll have some more stuff finished soon and pictures.

    Worked on the stroller this morning..(Well took some measurements ) My buddy has decided to make a gasser style front axle so im making a set of leafs for it Will make from .078 " stainless and roll the arch and stack, then set the arch as he wants it and tig little tacks along the leaf edges so they will retain their arch..(Wont be functional) but will have the look Then polish the edges ..Should look pretty cool..Here are some pics of the stance he wants.

    The first one is before when it was lowered..The next 2 are with the gasser look

    And he still wants to finish this puppy before Christmas and enter in World of Wheels in January WHEW !!!!!!
