The tandom front wheel set up really seems logical to me. I am really anxious to get behind the wheel to see what it feels like.

Thanks,
Brad

We worked really hard this weekend and got a lot done. I cut the holes in the belly pan for the rear tires. We built and installed both of the inner rear fenders. Then we cut the rear section of the body apart and totally reworked it to fit the top of the fenders. We ended up spreading the back bone section almost 2" to get it lined up correctly. Everything really turned out well thanks to all the help from fellow fabricators, Tree House Dave and  Racer Mark. There was one hell of alot of pounding and riviting topped off with aproximately 40' of aluminum welding.

The saying goes, many hands make light work & apparently nice work too. cheers
I'm wondering if I might be related to Tree House Dave. I live in what we call the tree house, It's a little appartment I built in the top of the shop to be closer to the streamliner. You have to climb a ladder to gt up here, hence the tree house.
But it might just be the Kiwi-Hillbilly-Redneck in me.

 Howdy Sid,
He truly lives in a real tree house. It has a ornimental iron spiral staircase, a window air conditioner, an outside deck and outside shower with a water heater. He really does have a nice home with oranges on acerage. His current spousal situation is pretty ugly so in the interm he built and lives the tree house and he is really happy. I will try to get some photos. It's funny but true.

So I'm not the only one with a shed and an outside shower?  After 5 years I got a hot water system because it looked like I would probably be here for a while...lol.  I better get started on that liner...

Loving the build.   cheers

Thats the same reason I originally built mine too. She stayed in the house for a year & a half after the divorce. After that I moved back in but it was empty, & I mean echo chamber empty. They say home is where the heart is & my heart is in the streamliner, so we moved in together.
Streamliner guys have to be able to put 10lb's of crap in a 5lb bag. The tree house is 300sq ft with everything including a laundry, a great mountain view & a ladder.

Another Friday evening BS gathering. Mark finished the new A frame car lift so he wanted to try it out. It worked great. It will be even better when he fine tunes it.  We set the car down for the first time and it looks way different than it does while it's up on the moving dollies.
