   Today I worked on the left shoulder again.  The plan was to create a plastic shoulder housing that goes on over the tire mount bolt.   
Bent a new tire bolt bracket from a 4 inch L-bracket, new workbench vice came in handy.

Started a cardboard template for actual shoulder housing. 

 Cut out bottom corners of a white plastic bin for material, and riveted them together.  The exposed rivets turned out looking cool.


Worked great, now to make the right side shoulder and other tire.  At least I won't have to paint the shoulders because white was the intended color.


  Here are a few photo's of my workshop in the basement.  Just mounted a vice on corner workbench, not as good as the one I had in SD but it will do just fine.  This used to be Jim's old workshop until we built the new garage with side wood-shop for all his awesome projects.
