That should be a fun build. Good solid foundation to start on. Looking forward to the project.

I noticed I didn't get the pics back in the original order, but they do look better. You can see a bit more of the detail now. I used PhotoScape to darken them some.

Might want to check the toe-in. Not sure if it's the pic angle or what, but the left front looks way out from here. Might be why it's wore so much.

Wow! is that I-beam for frame? Pix kinda hard to see details. Pull it up to a driveway or floor and take MORE! Ha! Kinda reminds me of a Power King type lay-out, real simple, common parts.
