Thanks! If this wasn't going to be used for hunting, I'd do that. Maybe that will be a future build...

Once cleaning up and removing the front body panel, discovered two things. The front body panel is plastic, not fiber glass like the rear body panel. I believe this is not stock, from the information I have come across? Also, apparently a tree or something quite robust made an impact to this cart. Which would certainly explain the potentially not stock front body panel.

So at this point I inspected the rest of the frame and found a number of minor welds in the front that were cracked. Luckily my lady friend works in the fabricating business. So we were lucky enough for one of her coworkers to repair the bent frame and re-weld the cracked welds.

Of course that is just when parts started to arrive, so it put a hold on the build...

I hope your "lady friend" doesn't read this and hear you refer to her as your "lady friend" for your sake.

UH OH! She does read this....

Actually, it is meant to be respectful. Grown men should not have girl friends, and she is not just another girl. She is truly a Lady.

So with the frame gone for a while, took the opportunity to prep the body panels for "paint".

Got one of those 3M fiber glass repair kits to fix the damage on the rear body. Here was the first application of "filling the hole". I forgot to take more pictures of the additional applications.

For the holes that were left around the rear wheel wells, from the stock "fender flares", I used Permatex plastic welder. In my opinion, way easier to work with than fiber glass. Once the fiber glass was repaired, I sanded it all down, and used filler for all the indentations and scratches, and did a finish sanding.

Since I wanted to make this cart be as black as possible, I went ahead and spray painted the edges and interior black. I did use adhesion promoter.

Got the frame back with the welds and bend repaired. I want this thing to be as discreet as possible, so decided to paint the frame black as well as the body.
