Back at it!
I was able to have a full day in the CycleKart Shop on Saturday, as it was raining (finally!), and re acquainted myself with the Miller.
Found parts I forgot I had built already, and a bunch that I had to "almost completion" that just need to be un taped, re assembled, final fitted, etc. etc.
In a full day I dod not drill one hole, cut one piece of metal, weld anything, or fabricate anything, ...........but did manage to repaint one small piece (I forgot I had even made) and figure out where and how all my body panel templates went together.
Also decided on how I was going to make my tail section structure. Found a piece of plywood to make an internal buck.
That was it!
Nothing even worthy of a new picture!
Unfortunately the sun came back out on Sunday, so between loading walnuts, going to the dump, draining sprinkler lines , winterizing the shower house, cutting lawns (3 hour on the lawn mower) and picking the last of the beans, tomatoes, and fruit..........I was unable to make it back out to the CK shop!
And then it was Monday morning again.....and it was time to go back to work in my Street Rod shop on customer's Model T Truck.
My employee woke me from a deep sleep when he turned on the shop compressor at the un Godly hour of 8:30 am, waking me from deep sleep.
Man it sucks to be "Retired" !!
Good Roads

Man, I get it. A farm's to-do list gets longer the more you do!

Pictures next time?

Download my Camera this morning to see if I had taken any new pictures of my cyclekart build.
And yes, there were a couple with the tires mounted (yes, all 4 are mounted)

Wow! Nice work Brian. Thanks for the ( salad bowl?) idea. I had just about given up on my Amilcar idea looking for that perfect roasting pan.

LOL, no probably not. I don’t have the skill level to form a beautiful bowl shape so your pic inspired me to possibly use part of a salad bowl for the top of the rad. No disrespect to your work intended. Guess I’m not very good at being funny.

As I am not good at "forming metal" either.....just welding pre formed shapes together.
A Salade bowl is a great idea if it is the right size! Hell, I use a theatre garbage cane for my rad shell top!
The real forming is coming for me right now, as I am entering into the world of Aluminum body building.
I will let you know how that goes????????

Well I tried! Made the bucks for my tail, and thought I was ready for aluminum.
BUT, old habits die hard......I found some 1936 Buick headlights I had out in the barn, and now am back to converting these to a "steel" tail section.
Welding steel is more in my wheelhouse.
Yes, I attacking pictures! Just being selective about "when" to post them, incase I change my mind again????

Yes, keep throwing steel on the pile. Everyone knows it weighs nothing!

It weighs half of nothing when you drill it full of holes like Swiss cheese plus you get ventilation for the motor.

Nothing is heavier than unrealized dreams; better a few more pounds in steel than a longer wait for the first ride. You can redo it in aluminum later if you wish.

After a long chat with Dennis Thomas last night, the tail may get even more holes.
As heat is also the enemy for these little machines!

Brian, find a way to cheat an intake/exit if you can. It takes a lot of ugly holes to vent just static hot air out the top. Fresh air in will force the hot out.
I'm trying to imagine exactly how headlight housings will form the basis of a Miller tail.
I guess I too, must call for pictures.

As long as there is a way for the EXPANDED HOT AIR to get out. Most of the cars get a hot seat back which disproves the simplicity of the fresh air forcing the hot air out. Plan on getting it out.
