    All Terrain Track Chair Project: part 7 of Final assembly

    This long term project of building an All Terrain Track Chair for a guy confined to a wheelchair is slowly making forward progress.
    I have many, many videos of it, but here's the latest one:
    Final Assembly Part 7: fuel tanks and control box stand that attaches to the wheelchair.

    Now part 8 of final assembly is complete, and it is finally moveable under its own power again!
    Getting close to the end, which I discuss at the end of the video.

    Part 9 video is now available. I cover much of the small bits that have consumed time over the past few months, and also focus on the winch anchor leg assemblies with fabricating the final pins to replace the temporary pivot bolts.
    I also designed, 3D printed, and installed a custom flip out lever handle for the main power switch.

    Thanks Frank! He's looking forward to it, and has been incredibly patient through this long build.

    Ok thanks I was thinking about my patented telescopic cargo lift that mounts in the bed of a pickup or can be made wider for a flat bed application the platform telescopes out horizontally just like a drawer in a tool box then the platform lowers to the ground remaining flat.
    For an application such as this the operator could ride his Tracked ATV onto the platform then roll his wheel chair right off, raise and retract into a trailer or on the flat bed truck. If his vehicle is similarly equipped for the mobility impaired he can go anywhere any when on his own, dependent upon no one

    And a couple of weeks ago I made further progress on this project by getting the roof on, part of the ramp flipper end, and the windshield frame on. Now working on the final pneumatic's for the windshield frame.
