Good Morning, Bobby Thanks! If things work out we can all get together. Rainy morning might get to 50* today.

That toter looks pretty heavy duty...

If we both end up going west this year, we might need you to tow us back. I'm still not sure I trust the guy who rebuilt my engine...

Looking good sir... can't wait to see it all hooked up.

-cheers

Terry,
The nice thing now is that once you get the Tot'r usable, then when the weather is too bad to do the outside, you can move to the inside. Can't wait to see the side compartments.
Frank

Piker, when I first spec out the steel for the Toter I thought I might be going too thick/heavy. Then I found a company, (forgot the name) that does these conversions and they used the same materials and thicknesses so I guessed correctly on what I should be using. In my auto shop we used a variety of engine rebuilders if we needed to replace an engine and it didn't seem to matter we could get a bad one from anyone, and we also did our own from time to time, (thank goodness they were okay) except the race engines.........we had a rash of catastrophic failures with them. So I wouldn't worry, break it in right keep an eye on the filters, whenever we changed the filters on a new engine we cut the filters and examined the inside to see what the filters had inside, it tells you what is breaking down or wearing. Frank, me too, I would like to get started on the sides, would hope that the weather breaks here soon, just need a little warmer

Terry,
That bumper looks better than the ones that you can buy. Looks good on there, and like you said, they can see you coming, They make fun of my chicken lights on my running boards, but they light up the side of the truck.

Oh and by the way, I got the EZ-Flex and wet bolts in the right side today and repacked the wheel bearings and started the tire rotation. Had a surprise when I took the front tire off, had a brake line that got pinched somehow and broke in two, luckily it pinched itself off and only a little fluid ran out and didn't empty the reservoir. So I changed that too. Will start on the left side tomorrow after Rita's appointment.

SEVEN chicken lights on the front bumper. Is that lucky 7 for good luck?

Looks good, Terry. Very impressive, as usual. I'm really learning and enjoying this.

Good Morning, Woke up this morning to no power . Have it now . Frank, Thanks! We need to install lights down the side also as we finish them. The brake line is scary any way to figure out what happened? so it won't happen again. Did you have EZ Flex before? I want to install that eventually on mine. Popeye, Thanks!, I don't consider myself a professional in anything, (that way there is no expectation) What's that saying? "Jack of all trades master of none" Charles, Thanks!,Seven lights is all I had on hand or there probley would be more, (I might do more later) I will be installing chassis lights under the Tot'r to light up underneath. I tried to video but not sure how much I got, had trouble with the camera shutting off on me.
