Not Quite Done

A truly heroic effort by the boyz today. P-dogs wife makes a parts run! Email chain indentifies possible bogie suppliers. Cadillac makes the bogie run. The club is running like a lean mean machine! P-dogs sled is done!. Slight problem with mine, not only did we need new bogies, need a new axel for the bogies. Lesson learned here boys and girls, check everything!
