You did well. You obtained some half-usable vinyl, foam and plywood (a seat or parts thereof).

That's a score, man! Derelict kart corpses never have seats.

That "form" was just a marker on paper!

Mig welding is easy.

Picked up a predator 6 and a half from Harbor Freight, found the torque converter on Craigslist should be a good heart for my project.

Smarter than you cause you forgot the "s" at the end of pretzels so now you gotta redo all your pics and post some that show the whole kart.

J/k it would be nice tho too see the whole frame in one pic. You will get more votes I promise you in the end.

---------- Post added at 11:12 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:33 PM ----------

Joe you'll get your request the frame has to be stripped down to bare metal not sure if I'm going to go green orange at this time

---------- Post added at 11:20 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:12 PM ----------

going to cut the frame in half and take A3 inch piece of pipe so the back end will swivel at 90 degrees not sure how the brakes and the throttle cable will work at this time

Well, it looks like you got a Manco Dingo on your hands. Good score because that's a quality machine. And you paid nothing for it because you found it in the woods?

Sad story the way go karts get abandoned...
