I'm going to put a coat. But after I paint it I need parts, when I got it both bearings were seized. And I should be able to figure out the throttle, thanks though.

Dingo is starting to look good, that Toyota on the other hand I don't know that "repair" would be the proper term, perhaps replace the frame?

He plans to chop it back to solid metal and get a new piece to wel d in, with propper bracing. Maybe take a trip to a junkyard and see if we coould get a frame cheap.

Got some stuff done. Most of the remaining frame is primed. And the truck is welded. Clean it up a bit, paint where we welded and put in new brale lines and it can all go back together.

Awesome. Glad the truck is fixed. Kart looks good. I’m still chugging away at my projects as well.

Got lug nuts for the wheel hubs. Then found out my dad had some stashed away. And also ran around town looking for wheel studs. Going to try the small engine repair place that my friend works at.

Is the new one the I/C one?
I would love to get my hands on a sleeved flathead.
