Are the instructions really that difficult to understand? I kept them as simple as possible:

Don't worry, I'll move it for you then, once you add a sign, I'll move it AGAIN

That's not what I was referring to; in what section did you post the thread?

...& that's my point; the instructions were to start a thread in the build-off main area, not the general discussion area, there's even a link provided...

None of that will effect voting in the end

Motor mount looks strong enough.

Got It Fixed, I Told What Happened And He Said Bring It Up Here ,Brought It Up There And He Flipped It Over And He Started Welding And Then asked Me How It Looked And I Said Great And Then He Said Did I Know How To Weld Or Have I Ever Welded Before So He Let Me Weld Up The Rest And It Turned Out Pretty Good Not Bad For The First Time Ever Welding, It's Probably All The YouTube Shows I Watched That Talked About Welding In Them

The "repair" looks better but, I have to say, they still don't look great, could've been a bit hotter...

I have to ask, though, why is the engine plate sideways?
