    For some reason a picture didn't work, so I clicked on it, then the window went into a "error" screen. Then I went to click the browser "back" button, and my whole post deleted:mad:

    But to sum things up:

    • i got the frame in the shop
    • it took me almost 3 hours
    • I did it alone, besides at the end my mom and sister helped flip the frame on its side to slide it into the shop-the doorway was 5" too narrow to fit the frame in there flat.
    • I used someones suggestion and used sleds because there is 5" of snow... I used a toboggan and a homemade wooden sled thing with old skis. (my dad previously made that a few years ago)
    • It barely fits in the shop, I really need to organize it so I can lay it flat.
    • i'm tired now
    • it's cold outside, especially when you are knealing in the snow on your knees for 10 minute periods.
    • The carport is mainly cleaned out now... just have the engine in there which I will deal with tomorrow...
    • PICTURES: not in any order.............

    All in all it went pretty smootly, besides the frame on the sleds getting out of control and flipping while going down a hill, it was fun.
