I got myself a winter project... my brother who was in a snowmobile accident in January of 2003 in a coma for 8 months and now lives in a brain injury rehab (WEAR HELMETS ALWAYS!!!!!!), used to be all about things that went fast; snowmobiles, cars, trucks, and yes... lawnmowers. His prized possesion was his Crafstman Riding Lawnmower that he raced in two races and won in one, but lost the other only because the wheel fell off
and he rolled it.
I have decided to try and redo his lawnmower, make it run great, and look damn good too.
Here are some pics of it (it has been sitting outside in michigan weather for 4 years)
I am probably going to have to do some serious work to get it even running let alone racing.
The "theme" it'* going to be is Coors Light. My brother was a nascar fan #40 Coors Light was his favorite. And all he drank was Coors Light.
I have it sitting in the garage right now, im trying to make room, so that i can work on it but we have a one car garage with one car and a **** load of stuff in it
These were the best pics i could get with it sitting where it was...
One wheel, the other on the seat
the front fenders are bent too
The one wheelie bar... the other rusted off
and yes it does need wheelie bars!
Thats right Crafstman
The Sweet Bart Simpson on the hood...
soon to be replaced with...
you can see here the sweet coors light bottle cap remover too, its going right next to the steering wheel
Like i said I got a lot of work to do on it... sand it down, try and fix some rust, fix some body panels that got bent when it was rolled, prime, paint, and decals. And thats just the body, i don't even know how bad the engine is going to be. I havn't tried starting it, i have to find a battery first.
Im looking for some #40 decals too, and i have some other ideas im going to try and incorparate into it. One is i want to make a Coors Light Tap handle as the shifter ****...
Well what do you guys think of my sweet project?
