Thanks fellas

She's almost done
...not far now

Installed the batteries
...the hold down bracket turned out nice.

Looks like I should fab a chain guard

Ground clearance for the rotor & sprocket aren't too bad

Ooh look, ya can even see the "reflection" of the front wheel in "shine" on the sprocket.

I guess one of the last things is to add some "grip pads" to the foot bar
...to add some "foot grip" & protect the finish

Just gotta add the seat & were done.

Over the long winter I played around with a few design ideas
& made up a few seats.

I'm thinkin' we'll just stick with the original one, that I made up for this kart. (the last pic)

Functional Artist... I'm impressed.

Your work with electrics is awesome. Makes me think of really scaled up R/C stuff I used to use with my Trex 450.

And the paint. I like it. I was experimenting with some rattle can paint from the hobby store designed to have the same basic effect. I didn't have good luck with it. I would like something in dark green shifting to a gloss black. But probably won't happen.

But all in all I think your project turned out well.

I know it was a lot of dedication and hard work.

Thank you for sharing!

Wes

Me & the misses went to an actual Damien show last night

It's been like 30 years since I last saw them

I even got/took a 2019 "bootleg" recording of "Every Dog has it's Day" to commemorate the occasion

Enjoy
