Should attach fins on the bottom. Then the tanks look like auxiliary lift rockets.
Might fit a theme if you're looking to get to heaven. Of course, with it at 180°, it might be aimed the wrong way for heaven, but maybe a true course non-the-less?... ;)

I was thinking of marking them NOS tanks or “embalming fluid” and filling them with Jack’s Ole #7. I always do the stickers last.

Hey, the whole underlining principle, the foundation, the core of this whole project is, at a minimum, “don’t miss the party in life.”

“Life is a party!” would be going to far. My thought, theme, is in the vein “don’t forget the smell the roses.”

You know I joke about everything, but your poke/joke actually put me into a serious reflection moment. We are in very serious and troubled times. Perhaps the subconscious inspiration for this ridiculous contraption is that we should never forget to laugh at ourselves, to not take ourselves too seriously, and to engage others first with goodwill and respect, but never without a sense of humor.

“They” will probably want to throw me in this thing and bury me after reading such free thoughts that might undermine some of our most important tick-tock influencers, who are supported by our government….

Doesn't look like tic TOC is being supported by government. Quite the opposite.

Day job and clients get in the way of everything I try to do.

I did take the impact and flipped over the channel that’s in front of the Casket behind where my feet will go. Front of the casket will sit on that channel.

Woo Hoo

I pulled the top and bottom 1/2 inch bolts, and just spun it on the 3/8 bolts in the middle. Doesn’t look like much, but the 3 inches gained feels like a mile with my duck feet.

Toonces drives a Ranger . . . . just not very well.

If only everybody had the same outlook, the world, and our country, would be in a much better place.

Well said, my friend. (y)

I’m going to do a few little things that are easy to do, but otherwise button up and box up the ‘Raith for a little while. Too much to do before Aug 2 Nationals, and still some important things I need to do to the Road Ranger which I’m definitely bringing.

‘Raith is still on hold, but I put the wings on the grille

Only 10 screws, and it was more in the category of cleaning up than assembly.

I’m liking it. Hard to see in the pics, but the fenders are about 2-3” total wider than the wings.

I’m glad I did it, helps with figuring next steps even if delayed.

That's unfortunate.

If you can't have one for every occasion, maybe these guys can help you theme up the one you have for various occasions.

Maybe you could get some sponsorship out of them. Unlike their normal clients, the party cart isn't destined for 6 feet under in a few days time. Could be an excellent rolling advertisement for their services.
