Thank you all for comments and suggestions...I thought of the wood project but was leaving that for a last ditch effort as me and wood projects dont get along so good...I do alot of back road searching for antique advertising signs, gas pumps, etc. So i think if i put some effort into it i can find an old junker Boler
somewhere for parts.
And it seems like there would be no problem selling extra parts on this forum to help pay for the gas....
In the mean time if anyone decides to gut their trailer and customize, i could use the seat...will keep in touch....thx kim
