Thanks

The front fenders are going to look similar. I cant wait to get it running. The best part of the LPG is no ecm and under $3 a gallon. I have not decided how to make the front end look any ideas? The paint is going to be a surprise.

man I gotta get my garage set up again. Working on this mower with a slitter wheel & cordless drill blows nuts. Make sure you post up some cool S.Lake pics since I couldn't be there.

P.S. - I'd like to drag the 5th wheel up next year if you let me know in advance. It worked awesome in Tellico except for the short tight turns Yeouch. I was lucky it didn't take the awning off.

This is the only other good pics I could find...
