    With my 4th post, I will enter BOTEN! This is what I believe is a 65 Huffy. Nothing special, I just want to make a clean simple build. Something low and mean. Everybody else has a great start, so I have my hands full. Im just here to have some fun. Peace

    Welcome to RRB and the Build Off. It's the halfway point, so you still have plenty of time to getRdone

    Thanks everybody!
    So I will try to keep this build budget friendly. Today I decide to start digging for parts. I want to try to use what I have first before I buy anything
    But ...., it is friggin' hot here in AZ now. About 110, so it is going to be rough building this thing up this summer
    But I will keep going, as I hate unfinished projects

    I feel your pain. It's not 110 here in Florida, but it's hitting the low 90's. Our "100" is the % humidity. Just standing in the open garage, fiddling with little pieces makes me drip sweat like I ran a marathon. Disgusting but true.

    I decided to give this thing some low, a Loco Joe Chop is perfect! I am no expert welder, but it came out better than expected.
    I just need to clean up the welds and start stripping the paint
    Hopefully I will get this primed up this weekend
