Hey guys!!

So, I've been working on the great ATV log cart build some more here recently, and this is where I am now. I've managed to fix my last screwup (welding the axles in the wrong places, because I was too tired to be out there), but now things still aren't perfect.

I've had my nice Jackson Auto Darkening hood stop working (~$300) and my MP3 somehow got damaged (~$125), plus I've had to buy more steel.

When I sat down and drew this up, I figured I could hopefully get $300-$350 for the finished cart, so I'd try to build it for $100-$150. Which I would have hit easily had all this stuff not started going wrong, Im in the project a little under $600 at this point.

I'm pretty pizzed, but what can I say, this is the curse of the Allis hard at work.

Everything went flawlessly until I tried to use a piece of the steering shaft from that thing as a mockup axle, at which point everything went to hell. I bet I've had to fix more of my own work on THIS one project than everything else I've built since 2009, COMBINED. I don't consider myself a religious person, but there are two things I believe in, karma, and the curse of the tractor from hell. If anyones ever wondered why I scrapped that thing, now you know. Fun fact: The truck I used to scrap it with caught fire days after hauling it in.

Not too happy about all this... What would you do if you were in this mess? The video tells more. Can't win them all I guess :(
