Rebuilding Hubs

Rims wheels are from the powder coater. did a great job. I really do the new coater that I found.

  Thank you love.

Finally, you to my Pa-paw.  I always felt he was  looking over my shoulder, smiling and laughing at my sloppy  for the perfectionist genes, forced countless welding I’m not sure that I can say for certain my welding is good, but I have no that I’m an expert grinder.

  I that everytime I fire up the I’ll think of him, and one day it’s Osby’s turn, he’ll do the same. We miss you
