1) Mechanically the gears are made of brittle white pot metals
as the grears mounts are broken off this project will need to be revisted.
It is thought we can hand cut and craft the gears from aluminum stock.
2) The front windshield is binding, at this time, the body frame will need to be examined
to find the source of the binding.
Total time to date 6 hours
