Yup, it does look like junk, you will be spending more than $300 to get this back to complete. Also, you are 1,000 posts in and still can't get a picture correctly oriented?? :roflol:

Carlisle tires are always good. Look for the Turf Saver style. Never buy tires at Tractor Supply, unless you are in a pinch. They are overpriced. I bought a couple of Hi-Run tires one time for my...

Save yourself a headache and just remove the engine. How would you paint the underside with the engine still mounted? Also disassemble the rest of the kart as much as possible.
