Thanks for all the kind words. I need to build the battery boxes and the enclosure for the propane tanks, which will be out of aluminum diamond plate. I like the looks of it, plus its durable. Might have to wait for spring, weather is going to "get" me.

Harley1994,
When you do the propane compartment, don't forget that the bottom has to be vented to the outside. Expanded metal would be a good choice. The reason for this is propane is heavier than air so any leak will settle in the bottom of the compartment, Vented at the bottom prevents any pockets from being developed.
Frank

Frank, good tip, you have to keep all this stuff in mind, the batteries have to be vented out the top, propane out the bottom, what an explosive development. Just got back from the steel yard, ALBANYSTEEL.NET, should have a good start on materials for reinforcing the rear and the ramp. Also got steel for adding cross members and reinforcing the suspension hangers.

Well after a slow start to the day, (rainy, chilly) we did get something done, we are working on the rear ramp, what I am doing first is making a frame that the ramp door will attach to, it also will make the rear of the TH stronger, the frame is 1.5 X 1.5 X 1/8th steel tubing, would have preferred aluminum but like I said before I don't have a way to weld aluminum right now. I did get the frame built but now I have to polish it up a bit and paint it. I have a couple of pics of some of the pieces as I was building. I also found my taillights, I got these at a local farm store, they are 18" long and are tail-brake and turn all in one, there will be four of them two down low and two up high and they are LED. I also located a complete hinge assembly with torsion springs, for 200.00 and free freight, have to wait for that to come in. Not the best deal but I can live with it.

While you are waiting for the hinge assembly you could go shopping for curtains.
