Time to Begin ...

Well ...
One new project for a good Ol'Friend of mine .
This one will be a Pure Rigid Board Tracker with a Strong ShovelHead motorisation .
The main difficulty will be to build this frame with all the "fake Castings" needed 
to obtain a PURE Vintage Look , just the same way i did it earlyer on my WarBoy .
Please , Take Time to Also Visit :
...My Real Cup of Tea .

Other IMPORTANT Point :
We decided to Build something Narrow , Tiny ...But THICK and BIG .
A Strong and Mighty Racer , Kinda "BIG-TOY" .

Starters ...

First :
I have to draw some toolings .
I need them to hold securely a Motor and his complete tranny ( empty comps. )
on my jig 'til i build the Frame.
Here is the Main Fixture Plate : this one will permit me to change the high of the Gearbox
and perfectly ALIGN the Motor , Gearbox and rear axle Line .

So bad i don't use to work with "AutoCad" for that kind of sketch ( One day , Maybe i will learn it ,
but i think i'm too Old now for that Bullshit . So bad .)
So : i do that job with classic drawing tools , Just the way my Pa learned it to me .

...And also my Googles .
