sometimes, everything just clicks in and you get lost in the work! here is a few shots of the last two days of caffeine fueled progress ( that and the shop has SERIOUSLY great acoustics for keeping the working tunes humming along !
no, its NOT an Australian Half Track ! just the easiest way to move it to a pallet !
AND ! the big news is that the powertrain is out. Its quite extraordinary just how easy it is to pull this. 6 bolts, and the prop shaft retainers, and that s it!

whole thing popped right out !
Thanks to the BFT (Big Frikken Tractor )
