No, I have the end of the month to finish, at least the back half, and get it back together. I have to set myself a deadline, believe me. I will probably enter the half done in tractor of the month, will need only one picture. :p lol

I am resurrecting this thread... because the Elec Trak has sat long enough. Nothing got piled on it, just around it.... so will have to clean the shop first, but work will proceed this month. I spent today looking for the parts that I uh .... couldn't find...

Now that those are found I am revisiting the rear battery box... thinking I am going to get it sandblasted and see what on it cleans up / falls off lol.

As for the brake pad I need to replace I will be making my own.... out of poplar lol. I am setting a goal to have this ready for the FCVAEC show this upcoming Summer.

I am surprised you did not know this, they have a plow day last weekend of April and a Summer tractor show, as well as a Fall tractor ride.
