I really like this build. How about a single red light in the front ? Kind of like Rudolf's nose so bright,

If the rad is an issue, here's a suggestion: You already borrowed the skis from a snowmobile...why not borrow the heat exchanger from it and put it under the chassis? If the snowmobiles heat exchanger isn't available, then mod the rad and put that under the chassis.

I think I'm getting close to the final look . Maybe the side wings can be narrowed a bit and continued back to meet the running boards . What do you think ?

Thanks for the encouragement guys ! When I started I wasn't too sure if it would work , but I'm pretty pleased so far .
I have a couple more ideas to try then I can start the finishing and figure out the paint scheme .
BOB .

Here's where I'm at . I changed the front bodywork to clean up the lines a bit , and am planning on the paint and interior to dress it up for Christmas !
I also like Ray's idea of a single red light up front , so I might be renaming it Rudolph !
