how thick wall and tough is the metal. you can tell if you set the front and back on blocks and sit on it and out weight on the frame rails if it bends get new metal if it doesnt keep going! also get 5/8ths bolts for mounting wheels as most go kart type wheels mount on those size bolts. harbor freight has engines for cheap and do not buy wheels from harbor freight.

Ok good to know. The metal seems pretty strong, but by looking at it. It's really thin. I guess I have to get one of those special expensive tape measure ruler to measure it?
