Got it painted and added the deck to it.









Next I'll make fenders.

Thought I'd add a couple of "finished product" pictures. Made fenders, got some Military tail lights from a local surplus place including the fiberglass storage box.
I think it came out pretty good!

Were the fenders welded on, or bolted on?

Yep, looks like a real work of art!
Adams E2 Euphonium (built in 2017)
Boosey & Co. Imperial Euphonium (built in 1941)
Edwards B454 bass trombone
Bach Stradivarius 42OG tenor trombone
Kanstul 33-T BBb tuba
Shen SB-180 double bass (we're talkin' strings, baby)

Bolted on, just in case. The storage I'm leaving in it's "natural" OD Green state.
