I was thinking the same thing as Smadge!  Everyone is making great progress on their tracks and I feel like I'm getting no where!

It's looking great! Keep at it.

Today, was a very painful slow day, took the entire day to get both tracks on so it can get the halftrack outside.  Time to clean the shop and finish painting the rest!

Yes we all have those days! I had to take my tracks off 3 times due a bad seal surface. But you’ll get there!

I remember that day. We got very proficient in putting on and taking off tracks. ;)

Moving right along on the floor! Go alot of bent pieces straightened and things welded, the things that dont belong cut off. Lots more work ahead but i will have this bed primed and installed on the track before January! As a part time project thats ambitious for me but I'll make it happen!

Slowly but surely! Floor goes into the sandblaster sunday.  Then the assembly should move right along!

It looks like you have all of the appropriate tools lined up, big hammer, wrenches, torches etc..

Rear bed and rail was sand blasted, just finished priming! One step closer to completion. Next step, assembly, then paint!
