@farmalldr :  Your right, the funny thing is me and my 3 sons carried the track over to shop and I changed my mind 2 times and re-postioned the chain and i still did it wrong. I have not installed them yet so I just have to get my son's together again and reverse it.... thanks for the critic 

@sugarmaker : I did find the emblem from "the Emblem guy" here on RedPower site, I just need to paint background 

I just changed chain for 3rd time. Lol

I am probably not doing it right so take this with a grain of salt.  For the starter system I ran it Battery-> starter cyenoid -> Starter.  For the alternator I ran it to the Battery -> Starter Cyenoid terminal.  This allows it to have a solid connection to the Battery and cut down on the wiring I had to run.  For all accessories I have a switch pannel I bought off amazone that I will hide with a Battery cover later.  It goes Battery -> Switch Pannel -> Fuze Box -> Item to be powered.  So far I have wired my fuel pump and electric fan with no issue.

Rubber plank board. Never seen that before? It must be pretty stiff durometer? some on top have grooves ois that important?  Oh I see its just packing for strapping the pack together. Looks like it miight almost work for pads too? You have machining to do for counter-bored holes several places each pad. Hope it drills good.

The 2 x3 shape looks like it came off a barwell type extruder?

Options to cut to length? We used a serrated type knife blade with water for lube.

Regards,

 Chris
