Re: Anyone knows the Moxon Tractor ?

Here is a wild guess...

Moxon may be just the name associated with the tractor due to a one time possible owner like Moxon Textiles. Perhaps they used the tractor to maintain the grounds and it just became known as the "Moxon Tractor" One article states it was used to pull gang mowers.

That is a great video and he is a craftsmen for sure. Like Rich said I doubt he's getting rich but the prices seem high to his customers and with that I will agree but the customer probably hasn't taken into account all the work, time, and materials he has in just making the forms to bend the sides....

Re: Routing headlight wiring

To feed the wire to the headlight there should be a hole in the frame/hood shelf the wires run along the inside edge of the frame and out through the hole to the headlight. There is a grommet to protect the wire as it passes through the frame/hood shelf.

Re: The Future of New Tires?

The one thought I had about these tires is that the holes will pick up rocks, mud, snow, slush and fling it on another car at 65 miles an hour breaking windows, denting doors, scratching paint. I guess the lawyers will make out fairly well.
