And you don't have to wax it, just spray on water sealant.

35 years ago the Army tried having dump trucks with FELs on the front. The only time I saw them was 1980 at FT Devens, MA. Never saw them again. They looked fragile and like maintenance headaches. Good Luck, Rick

I think it's cool, but would be too big for most small home duties.

That's the craze right now, the rusted out thrown together "rat rods"

 

The fork lift in the background is pretty cool too.
