Project "Snow Drift"

Recommended Posts

Oldskool

I've wanted to do this type of project for a while now. So here we go. The name was given by @wallfish. It will be called "The Yeti".  It will be painted and badged in a military theme. The front axle is in progress now.

Thanks. I think it's going to be fun but also a bit of a head scratcher. Another pic will be posted later on today

The front axle is done for now, and now a bit of frame action.

Yeah, I'd imagine so but the challenge is all part of the fun too.
