    Been a while since being on here last.
    Please see the attached pictures of the current restoration project. Most of the original carriage was rotten.

    Thanks very much, most of it is completed now and just need to do the rope work to finish it off.
    We will install the side boxes and barrel over the weekend so should be able to get some pictures up early next week.

    20190206_020644.jpg Nice popper. Think my neighbors would have a cow so I have a smaller one. Not real purdy right now. Kind of been in work since high school. It's a toughy though. Made from cold rolled tool steel. Take a carbide bit to drill it. Working on wood wheels then new better looking straps and probably add an ammo cart. Lots of fun on 4th and new years. Has a really nice low tone to it.
