Looking good! I have a question, on the front suspension control arms is the round tubing being used as bushing material? or is there bushing material inside of them where they pivot on the bolts?
I see, good idea, sometimes your just better off making your own stuff then you know it is done right!Thanks guys!
The plan is to use flanged bronze bushings that press into each end of the tubes. They're on the way. I'll take a pic of how it's set up. Right now the a-arms are just kinda sitting there with a bolt run through the tubes.
I'm pretty unimpressed with these brackets/weldments. I thought they would save me time but maybe not. The punched holes are way off from being straight through so when I get the bushings in the a-arms I'm pretty sure I'm gonna have to elongate the bracket holes so they'll bolt up.

So what may I ask are you going to use as a power plant?
There are plenty of options to choose from for sure.That's a good question. I've been going back and forth on that. The plans call for a 10hp but I'd sure like more than that. I have a 27hp Kohler sitting here that I'd love to use but I don't know the first thing about how to transfer that power to the wheels. The 40 series Comet torque converter says it's only good up to 18hp so that's probably out. I'm up for any suggestions but I'll probably be more likely to go with a 420cc Predator engine.
I would also say 27hp is maybe going to be a bit hard to manage and find a clutch for. Go with the 420
