Now that my room is booked, I really don't have much excuse not to give my first Wheelhorse "Put Put" the deserved lovin' that it needs! The last time it was on a road trip was to Scott's Meet and Greet in maybe 2016 or so. On the road, the left side of the hood cracked where the top meets the front. I guess that's due to the front mount being ripped off since I picked up the tractor quite a while back. Last night I pulled the tractor into the shop, and started welding up the seam. I couldn't figure a way to just repair the crack, so I tacked the entire hood seam, then started grinding back welds. Let me just say, that I'm a fabricator, but have never done body work to speak of. I didn't realize how warped the hood panels were! I'm going to do my best to smooth out the joint, but not to repair the years of work and age that this hood (or the rest of the tractor for that matter) have earned. There are dents and bruises, they'll just be cleaned up and painted. You can also see I started fabbing a support for the exhaust too. Another order of business, is I know I need to become a member... I've needed it from day one but other priorities have gotten in the way. As soon as I can remember my paypal login, I'm getting that done!
