Have 85 PK with older drivetrain in it, so it uses the old style T-92 trans and engine is reversed from norm. Had to flip rear-end to make it turn right way with engine switch, and moved the steering to left like old PK"s have and will have a double wide seat on it when done. Driver will drive from left side of tunnel and passenger on right side. Will be Power Yellow, sort of MM then and red wheels. Here's some shots of the body panels being sanded, ready to shoot some paint on them soon. Will update as I go.

Painted yesterday! had to use lighter yellow, they didn't have the Power Yellow that I really wanted in stock. I now have the seat board on and the front wheels painted up better since picture. Not sure what to do with back wheels. Paint? or maybe couple hubcaps from auto store? Seats will go on next week. I have them drilled for mounting, just had to stain/varnish the wood platform, so they are off again now.

Now that is way too cool! You never run out of new and different ideas do ya.

That's looking really nice! How are you going to put the driver's pedals on the left?

I really like what you are doing. Glad that you could re use your equipment into something useful. Look forward to more pictures. Thanks Rick

Used orig pedals, reshaped some and moved to left side only. Driver sits to one side, not over tunnel. I DID have to put the clutch on right and brake on left to make work off same shaft. I kinda forget sometimes when driving it. Seat is lowered from orig position and still a little reach to those pedals, but what can you do when making it wider?? I was thinking of making a wood rear section, removing the fender panel and have a small bed on back too. Changed my mind and made it more regular. Seats on soon and maybe some lettering.

Here we are, seats on, wheel covers and name on backside! Need to work on a grill now and some side decals later. Forgot to mention Mama went for a little ride with me. She can't reach floor when in seat. She didn't wanna at first, but then climbed on. Says she didn't like it, but I KNOW she did, heh!

Might have it at Portland, IN big show 3rd week in August. Come on up and we'll go for one, or you can drive it then too!

Have the red grill in now, and hood stop strap. Seems HE wants to go now. Loaded on truck, won't fit 6ft bed and close gate. Had to remove the long hitch out back and strap up the gate. needs to be up to clear the trailer connections I'll have when going to show.

That's what I'd call a custom ride nice work.

Looks pretty cool! Nice job!

Ran around show with it today and went real smooth and easy. Ran my Cucumber Clunker (MTD) and it kept quitting like running out of gas unless I just idled around. Needs carb work or adjust maybe? Took the WH GT14 around and it was nice too, probly the easiest to use of all three.
