So work has begun on the hot rod wheelhouse.

Stripped the raider down to only what is necessary. 

Engine being rebuilt and got an old seat to put on her

Start cutting the beer keg open tomorrow to use as front grill

Will be a good day

Was emptying the keg the incentive for this project, :rolleyes:  and why is this reminding me of Chitty Chitty bang bang.  

Looks like fun.  :)

What did the front wheels come off of?

There off a moped. Bore holes were exactly the same so just pushed the bearings out of the moped wheel and knocked the bushes out of the wheel horse wheel and swapped them. Had to shorten the moped wheel by about an inch and half overall so it would fit on the spindle but overall result looks great. They will be blasted along with the back wheels ready for paint but they sit taller at the front which gives the tractor a slight rake. Perfect for the look i want. Going to change the tyres also on front so they Kinda  match the back tyres but all in good time. I have an option of putting some floatation wheels and tyres on back but can't make up my mind on them yet

Bigger is better, even if you end up having to raise the fender pan up to clear.
