Got my ackerman straitened out. Thanks to Rooster!  And with the help of some pictures from some other folks on here.

Going to put the dash and steering supports in this weekend and I should have some pics up on Monday.

Where did you find that U-joint?
It looks good!

It's a 9/16" impacted swivel socket.  I turned down the ends of the 5/8 rod to press fit into the socket end and the same on the 1/2" square drive end. After fitting in the tractor it will get welded together.

I'm thinking this might not be legal? ARMA rules for sheet metal are as delivered except for trimming. but I have seen it done before in one of George's builds but that was a super and this is a Mod-x-R.

We were experimenting with some ideas. I just like the idea of the fender over the tires like a stock tractor

I did the exact same thing to mine. I was told its OK to widen the fenders as long as you make it look stock again.

Just be sure you give those tires enough space under that fender, to "grow" under acceleration. I have seen tires gain up to 2 inches of circumference when spun hard....

Scoot what group do you run with. I just want to make sure that if I do it this way I will pass tech at other ARMA tracks.

In fact we talked about that today. If I do it this way we'll put 1 3/4 between the fender and tire.

Thanks Caudy
We hacked up the Husky fender to get the look we wanted . Now that we have some patterns we'll be able to cut up the good fenders pretty easily. It looks like we'll be doing another one of these for my friends son.
