    My KCW account exec says to do the rocker…

    good idea….

    I made some progress yesterday… about 4 hours worth… 😎  Going to hammer out these blades, weld in a few nut zerts that are missing and fit the new parts to the old blades and then abrasive cleaning!!!!!!

    Pat will continue to weld and repair!  He was working on safar’s and OG style nut plate insert mounting system… 😎  😎

    Buddy…. I heard your 13W was out last weekend.. You snap a pic or anything??  😎
