Got the wheels on. I put a choker on each end of the front axle and was having some fun dragging it around the yard with the riding mower. I could pull it around in the grass by hand with no trouble, works a whole lot better than I expected.

No paint. :mrgreen: I oiled it up with linseed oil on the outside and I'm in the process of drying it on there right now. This is the way it's going to stay.

I like it better this way. Everybody has a black pit, this looks more old school to me.

I agree, altho, that Camo would ROCK especially on the end that has Firebox (and faux gun barrels) :wav: :salut:

Looks like the front axles will never run out of grease.

Hey, there's an idea - run the grease drain right down through the front axle! :mrgreen:
