Why should it be any different for you than the rest of us? Looking really good!

I haven't been posting many comments, but I'm fascinated and following this thread as it progresses.

Yea, sorry for the delay, some other work got me sidetracked.
I finally finished the underside work.
Last thing I had to do was make the clutch cross linkage housing.
Since there is little pressure on it I made it out of wood and used
some bearings to make it all smooth and all.

Electric work is left as well as mounting the wood bed.
