It's going to take at least a year yet probably before it's done, then the trailer comes into play that will set behind this big ol mack. It is sturdy so far, I still have afew things to correct on the frame yet.. but it's getting there though.

Well, my dang micro torch decided it would act up tonight and not work right at all, so since I had spare parts on the one work bench I decided to make a homemade micro blow torch until I can get mine working right and until I can get anew one. So I made this little micro torch and it works very good too! The other torch wasn't heating the brass up right or melting the soldier right either. The one does.

Hi Jim, impressive work you have going on here.

Just one question, I know you said your friend got you the wheels and fenders, any idea where they came from? I would love them for my current project.

Cheers, Kane.

Hi Kane, first off thanks for the kind comment. 2nd I'm sorry it took me alittle while to reply back here to your question. 3rd I asked my friend Mark about the rims and where he got them at.. he said he got most of his stuff from KFS and also the rims. I hope that info helps you out with your project as well. I would also love to see the project of yours if you like to share some photos.
