FT- I got the windshield last year, got tired of crouching while cruising home in the cold weather. Did you get to the heater hose? I like the idea about more space, but i think i am jus going to scavange a different seat so i can switch if i ever have to. Maybe if the kids get it some day. But i did get the Soft case mounted/machette/axe and winshield extension. Next would have to be seat, then make a spot for the ice pick to go. I think i am going to rivet uhmw under the foot rails also, make it stronger and help it slide along in the deep stuff. I was thinking about taking a Hand crank boat winch, dbl-line pulley the cable and adding hooks on the under side so i can hook it to the front or back if i ever have to. Be faster then a come-along. Then skid plate, if i run it farther out it should help with the snow getting in the hood. Also help it float in the soup higher. Well i cut up three big totes of bait size fish chunks, jus have to wire it up. Gonna head out and check out the east line tomorrow if it warms up some.
