Another quick update.  The tow gear has been assembled, although there are some minor parts to add.

And some work with the protective cage under the tow gear and some vents
(I just noticed the yellow paint specs on the last photo.  They must have come off my fingers - will need to remove them)

Inspirational Geapra. . .thank you for sharing. It is quite refreshing for me to
examine your work and fine new ideas that fit perfectly towards what I am
working on and trying to figure out and all.
