Stop thinking like me, ive been trying to figure out how to cut it and where. Exhaust pipes are definitely going from the wheelbarrow to the cart. I bought the wheelbarrow to bring the rock around the house between the fence and cement. Took me a whole day to move it all. Havent used the wheel barrow since. I was actually thinking about cutting it for a body part. But do I use it as a hood or a boat tail? Not counting it out

Sounds like you need to buy a 2nd wheelbarrow....

Those are all sweet, but for some reason it hurts me a little seeing the motor mount on that canoe.
I worked at a canoe shop all through college and we did repairs and restorations. I always tried to be period correct with the wood boats and I even bought old tools so all my marks and the flow of the work would be good.

Is that a Fink kit, or a mash up? Too rad! Barris meets Roth, what a beautiful baby! I totally NEED that

It was just a google image search result of ratmobile fink

Got a bit of it apart tonight. Looks like the rear axle was put in then the hubs were welded in place. I have a friend with a welding company that will look at it and help me cut and weld. Ordered new wheel bearings, not sure what the axle bearings are. And I put the wheelbarrow to good use. Also thinking of changing the brake lever to an up high pole with an 8 ball on it to resemble a high rat fink style stick shift
