Well I know that it has been awhile since my last post,
So we did some work this weekend.
The wheelchair lift is taking shape and I have been ordering alot of parts.
So everyone know this part was all built by my buddy Dave.
While he was building this I was working on the seat bases.
We still have a lot of work to go just to get the lift to work.
I will say I am way over budget and this project is getting bigger and bigger every day.
I got a promotion at work so I start training on the 26th of November
I will have off every weekend so we will be getting alot of work done on the weekends.
Heres some pictures and I have video on my phone I will post ASAP.

Well we got a lot of work done this weekend.

Was able to get all the surface rust off and all the metal primed and painted still have one coat of paint to go.

Also got the front and rear seat stands built and mounted.

Next we have to install the decking and railings.

Here are some pics...........

The wheelchair lift is fully complete and fully functional

Railing are done just need to paint them.

Flooring all screwed done just need to coat it in LineX.

Next will be the tractor tires and then everything else.

She truly is coming together.
