I keep thinking my car is short and the Spud is long but they look about the same in that last pic? What wheelbase again?

Looking good Sparky!

See you there!
With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead. -- RFC 1925

You can't make a race horse out of a pig. But if you work hard enough at it you can make a mighty fast pig. - Bob Akin

It looks so different (better) out of the jig. Those ring members in the frame remind me of the jet cars back in the 1960's. And that reminds me of gobs of power and super speeds.
Don't forget to record all these great memories in your head in slow motion and smell the roses along the way.

Some one told me it reminded them of 60-70s playground equipment ROCKET that replaced the traditional monkey bars!

It does, the park we played at as kids had what we called the ROCKET SLIDE. Looked just like the Spud!

Marty came by with his boring bar we opened the wheel id .120 to fit over the hubs

The last piece of safety padding glued in..

All I need is to put the belts in and load up the truck

Padding? Thats funny! :-o

To quote an un-named safety supplier "a two-by-four would pass the SFI test better than some of that stuff being sold."

Seat belt? Only requires a piece of string for that fella! Paint some eyes and he might pass driver test better than some drivers! :-D
