I’ve mocked up one side of K-9’s drive foot out of scrap wood. Once I’m happy with the layout I’ll transfer it to some aluminum. I’m also going to cut real spacers from a steel tube. This is based off an R2D2’s foot.
I think I need more clearance on the bottom. There’s maybe half an inch of the wheel below the frame. K-9 might need a bit more than that. I can lower this a little bit with another wheel slot below the first one.

There are so many Mustang photos on my dash today that it makes me miss driving mine. I’m still working on that floor. If I could get 2 days in a row without rain on my days off I’d probably pass out from shock. I wish I had an actual garage to work in.
I finally cut up that busted bed frame I was given. I love free stuff. That little tree frog was guarding the bag with my wheel and metal bits. I named him Rory, the Last Frogturion.
I mocked up K-9’s subframe. Before I weld it together I want to have the wheels and motor positioning done. Drilling the holes on these pieces of frame will be a lot easier than with the frame all welded together. I tried the sonic screwdriver on it but I guess the weld app isn’t working.
Here are the before and after pictures together so you could see the differences.
Looks good huh?
Wait a minute, this is a 305?!? Haha
Did Tom really just apologize for being in the picture with the car.

Today I spent about eight hours constructing K-9’s main body. It’s surprisingly light but is still sturdy. Now that I have this I can start looking into cutting and welding the base that will support the motors and battery. I’m wondering if this will fit in the DeLorean after all. I’ll probably test fit tomorrow after work once the glue has dried.
I’m really bad at identifying older 50s vehicles, especially when they’re missing so much of their trim. My neighbor picked up these two. I knew he was getting the jeepster but didn’t know about the other one. The roadster fired right up with a little tinkering but I haven’t heard the jeep running yet. I don’t know what his plans are but I’m liking the flames he found under the door.
