    I saw that my good friend Miles was making a Doodlebug and it looks really cool. So I asked him if he wouldnt mind me taking on the same project but with a couple of changes. He said yes and he even gave me all the needed parts which I paid him for. So here is how mine looks after 2days of straight work. Hope you guys like it.

    Speaking of changes what did was instead of having the roof cut straight above the cab I took the cut out section of the roof and took the end and added that instead of it being straight. I also added a snow plow and painted saftey stripes on the front. The last thing that I added was the weight from the fuel tank to the inside of the roof for more wieght and a smoother operation. Still to come roof detail.​
