Awesome work!  Where did you get all of your screws?

Corey

Thanks!!
You talking about all the oval head slotted 3/8 x 24's?
I had a few hundred and bought a few more hundred from Kevin Lockwood.

Half track update....The Reveal!!!!
Well here we go....a lot of of blood, sweat, and creating new colorful metaphors........here she is.....Bertha.
Named after my Great Aunt Bertha...a tough lady who's picture I included along with Uncle Sampson. They didn't get electricity till the mid 80's and you never met two happier folks.

Thanks for all the info and encouragement!!

So without further ado....

Y'all stay healthy!!

All dressed up and no where to go. Like placement of cutoff switch, might change mine so I can reach from driver’s seats. Nice job

We went to a military show in Denton, NC on 4/25. Had a really great time and met a lot of great folks.
Here are a few shots of Bertha from the event and links to a couple of videos of us cruzin' around the grounds giving rides.
