    Couple more of the frame.. we machined the axle, handle, spindles, and steering parts at the machine shop I work at. Talked a buddy of mine into painting it. He wants to go back and put some lace or flake or something more on the paint, but I had to have it by today. Still going to sew up some sort of interior to keep his fingers away from any moving parts, but it's done for the most part. Thanks for the compliments.

    Who cares:( Some people can't resist throwing a monkey wrench into an otherwise cool thread. Besides I'm sure the kid will report back the first time he throws it into turn 1 going 200 MPH at Talladaga.
    Cool ride, and I'm sure it will encourage him to follow in his dad's footsteps.
