I am thinking next week I'll go down to one liter and see how my walks do. 

Hopefully when you start moving around more and taking walks you will improve. When l was in the hospital at one time they had me on 17 liters. l think they had a Craftsman air compressor on one end of the air line and my mask on the other....lol  But now l'm on 2 liters "as needed", such as a lot of exertion. And my O-2 sat consistently runs from 97 to 99.  But please, don't push it. Take your time and do what your doc says. And when the tractor show comes, you be the boss and tell the folks what to do!! 😊

Maybe it's the camera angle or something but will the crane-hoist still fit with the wood sideboards?  l can't hardly wait to see that big red LP tank mounted up!!! 

Yes the lift will be fully operational with boards on . 
we modified the lift to make it removable if hitching a gooseneck trailer.

yes I hope they do a bang up job on tank so we can pin stripe , J. P. Jensen & Son Blacksmithing logo on it. I hope I can have anvil and all in the pin stripe

This wood is under bed to even out and support bed. Herb had it that way and there was no sign of wear or movement . They will be painted black as frame and really not be very noticeable unless you know they are there.

 The bed itself is Diamond plate.

 The only other wood will be the side boards , like he had before with a little more bling !lol.

 Yep waiting to see tank completed !

l learn something new every day. l didn't know you could use old plates much less get them re-done. Although l don't the difference, in Texas you can get either Classic plates or Antique plates but they are new plates.
