Default sv200 rebuild

I bought this a couple years ago ----I got it running after years of hackers adding junk made it a mess----it ran and moved and all the crap added to it worked sometimes----so one day I gutted it all out -----it ran better and things worked that didn't work before --head lights/heater/gas guage----but it was still ugly----this cat runs and drives so nice its getting a rebuild

That looks like a really nice setup. A significant improvement in so many ways, yet the integration of the new cab literally looks factory.

I have been working on the dog house---this is the old dog house re installed backwards---I lowered the radiator in the chassis---and lowered the dog house also----the dog house is bolted to the chassis with the access door to the rear of cat----and the frt. of the dog house will be part of the cab floor and flip up with the cab when tilted---and also what is nice about the cab is that it has a huge floor plate that is removable and the frt. part of the dog house will be part of it

when build this I did think about the lower cab to ground clearance -----but the plow frame ----which looks factory-----sits lower than the cab----but if I had to I can pull the steps off and cut lower doors and I will have 22 inches ground to cab-----top of the tracks are 24 inches

No, it should be a Ford....

GM just tossed out 15,000 workers, and plans to build electric cars in China.

I know I will never buy a GM product again. To easy to go right around the left wing Obama motors...

I hope we tariff any possibility of profit from the move on GM's part.

Sorry...
