Looks great..

Thanks for the update posts!

Your work is very good and well done. I'm looking forward to seeing the tub come together.

We haven't settled on a final body design but I think we're close. My frame material showed up yesterday.

As far as the plug or rosette welds being "overkill", that just standard procedure for any tube splice for several reasons, I see nothing on your build that is overdone. My motto has always been "when it comes to killin', there ain't no such thing as overkill"

Please, don't take that as a personal attack, Dave! I meant it in a friendly way both toward Zip and you! Struck me funny because several guys were mentioning the welds and usually guys are really positively impressed by good TIG work, oooh's and ahhh's galore.

Wish to heck I had the kit to do it, if it doesn't take too much brains. For me it's too much like walking and chewing gum at the same time, why push my luck? Just got my lovable old Millermatic 35 humming a sweet tune again, gorgeous welds but not TIG. That will have to do for my hack build: is there such a thing as mediumkill?

I am very interested in the details of the bracket and the mounting of it to the final drive housing.

Nice fab work BTW.
