Royse said: Remember, I wasn't doing a restoration here, just taking a

non-runner and making it work good and look decent.

I know the color scheme is not quite right, but I like the touches of black.

The paint is 100% Rustoleum, including the primer.

I didn't spend hardly any time on the sheet metal either.

Figured I'd leave that for the next guy. :)

Started on it last Wednesday, finished up last night, so eight
days mostly tinkering after work. Didn't work on it Sunday at all.

It is running in the last three pictures, glad to see no smoke!

Boss lady had to go for a spin. She did an awful lot of the cleaning
and scrubbing while I was at work. :)

Why do you have one of the rear wheels on one way and the other rear wheel on a different way?

The tire that is NOT facing the conventional way will pack more dirt in the lugs and provide more push, so I have been told.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

They were that way when I got it and they just happen to be on in such
a way that I would need to remove and remount a tire from the rim to fix it.

One rim needs to be replaced. When that happens, the tire can get fixed. :)
