You said yesterday you were building a table "Holey Crap". One suggestion your CK will not need to be that stout remember strong and light. LOL
Great to see your progress.

Oh yeah!
Table weighs between 1500 lbs and a ton???
Had the steel, what can I say.
Welding plate on the end weighs 125 lbs all by itself.
Cut my frame rails before I came in for lunch.
Going out to build myself a frame this afternoon.

I have a wood block (short piece of 2 x 4) to block the wheel with when it is parked on a hill orin the back of my PU.
As close to wood as this Kart will get.
With the exception of the special wood on the Steering Wheel that Vic is making for me, as he is the "Woodworker"!
Good Roads
Brian
PS
Got my frame all cut out today and made the smallest C'ed section I have ever done.
Been C"ing Frames for over 50 years!
Pictures tomorrow!

More pictures of frame build.
Vic came over the other night, and talked to Don, who is coming for a visit this week........so I am highly motivated to have something in one big chunk ASAP.
Working on the CK daily now!

This is what I am heading out to today, after I harrow my hay field!
Brian

Note that the fake spring is mount upside down.......I was getting tired and needed to come in for supper and wine on the couch.

Hey Brian....why don't cha put some springs under that back end??????

Just pokin' fun at cha buddy....looking good. Ya gonna have it finished
up by June??? The body work should be a snap for ya, aluminum being
ten times as easy to work as steel.
You planning on a lot of compound panels like Dennis T.'s Studebaker?

Yeah Man!
You're killin' it!
I just came in for a short break from spading (80hp Kubota w/ 5' Tortella Spader) our Spring vegetable field. This is the first day this spring that the ground's been dry enough to work. Good luck with your hay field AND the CK!

Brian, what finish were you thinking about for the steering wheel wood? It's so velvety smooth and soft I was thinking greasy palm!
