Default DIY Halloween

Hey Everyone,

If any of you know of me, you know I have a couple projects going on; as always...... ( My Murray Kart, Doodle Devil, and Briggs)

Halloween is approaching and The Fam is expecting me to step it up again this year.
Last year I made my middle child Jaxen's (Bubba) costume a front end loader with a scoop. He was "Bub the Builder"




This year I decided to make him Mario Kart
Since I picked up welding last year; I knew I had to step it up...
I am using 1/4' rod for the frame and skeleton work and attaching it to frame with clamps.


i will add more when i have his chair ( he is at school and using it during waking hours) to finish design work and monuting.
I plan on having lights, steering wheel for him, and a spoiler too.

Used spray cans for his exhaust and will sheet it in cardboard.

I thought I had posted in this already but I see I didn't....
The bulldozer is awesome! I like the Mario kart idea too..... BUT next year, you need to step up to a top fuel dragster.... He is already sitting between 2 big wheels, like the old gassers.... Look at the pic below.....that's your sons helmet/head sticking up between the tires..... Make a faux blown hemi v8 and your set!
Ok, maybe Nick jr don't like dragsters....... You got more than a year to convince him......
EDIT what a moron..... I guess I should actually post a pic if I tell you to look at one......

Haha that is not a bad idea at all.......
I could always use the plastic engine that is the front on the 110cc mini choppers.

It is finished.....
We went to one party and it was a hit. I will load pics later of it on his chair. I fits great and held up great. The lights lead the way in the dark.

Here are a couple pics of it, just not on the chair.
