Winter projects

Here is a PIC of a winter project for the MH. Tore of my mudflap and bent the back support, with some new tubing, a little welding and a new piece of dump truck plastic bed liner from Badger Plastics, fixed. As you can see the DW is trying to bait me over to get her Ski-Doo ready. As a diehard Arctic Cat guy it's hard to even look at a Ski-Doo let alone own one. Well I guess I have spoiled her rotten and she gets what she wants so now I have a !?** Ski-Doo. Love will make a guy do some crazy stuff ! Oh well 39 years working on 40 I guess Ski-Doo or not I'll keep her.

Looks like a good job indeed. Toughest part about having those large flaps is keeping them from getting damaged. I bet that we have both seen some pretty terribly tore up mud flaps! Thanks for sharing!

Can't believe that nobody commented about the bait on the seat of the Ski-Doo.

Like deer in the headlights I guess when folks look at that mud flap. Not a drinkin' man but is that Ol' Grand Dad?

Arctic cat rules. I miss my old 340 panther. The 18" track would get me anywhere I wanted to go. My friends with their larger 440 and top of the line 500cc with 12" tacks would sink in the deep snow.

But I show my age with such underpowered machines. Good old pull starts worked every time even when it was single digits.

Oh... Nice mudflap too.

You mean to say you have enough snow there to run "sleds" on? We're "hurt'n for certain" up here around Duluth....

Almond WI is in central WI just off I-39 just south of Stevens Point. I live in the Burps there's a few corn fields and potato fields Between me and town. That is a bottle of Kesslers and it worked I have it all ready to ride, We have no snow and the weather has been really warm for this time of the year. Hope it doesn't decide to be winter in spring when we should be camping.
