Knobs and levers... (trains had those right? ) and a little mini bicycle headlight should help out I think. Sure, some of this stuff can be found today... but I wanted old stuff with scratches and wear.

Funny thing here is: part of a kitchen sink has now just been used on a go kart. Possibly a first?

I also turned up another nifty item but that's for my other post "kart rods." Feel free to pop over there to see what I found.

No cost associated with today as he owed me for a favor.

Oh yes, CHANCER? I did scour this place for a crate for ya but nothing turned up.
I love places like this. You can walk round forever looking at things

Update:

Got some done here. Cab templates made up and sat in place to for engine positioning. Found the other engine so it's a go for two engines.

And decided to go with the tall 5" bigfoots on the back. There's a different destiny for those awesome 6" rear mancos.

Thanks for looking.

Looking Good! Are those wood? In the flat Black they look like Heavy plate Steel. Just need some Gold Pinstriping.

Thanks. Kind of. They're like those pressboard sliding doors found in some office furniture I found laying around. Flexible, light and easy to work with.

All the trim will be silver I think.
