Nice work indeed. She's going to be a thing of form and function. :kewl:

Rolls very easy. You can push it with one hand. Well on the level floor in the shop anyway.

But then I don't plan on pushing it up any hills.

Would not mind that size shop even if it was not at my house... for that space I'd travel some. :D

Shop space is sacred. We all cherish what we have and hope for what we truly want. Yet be happy for what you have as it gets done what we actually need.

Should be done by the end of the week. Next Tuesday afternoon it goes in for powder coating. Hopefully pick it up Thursday or Friday and season on Saturday.

Highly recommend you fire it up and do a few cooks on it before painting. You may need to adjust, fix or add something to it.

After all, “done” doesn’t really mean we aren’t going to keep welding on it.
