Side elevation. Note how it all folds in. Getting this accurately right is a pain in the neck.All measurements should be spot on other wise it won't fold or deploy properly.

Showing the bottom area. If you know your Puma Dozer - Daqhpor then you will understand all this details on this little project. Note the ram attachment on the bottom is not attach as yet.



The details on the bottom of the blade is not done yet...I have to detail the bolts here.




Once all details are done I will see how I will cast this complicated build as the fitting is precisely done to achieve a proper alignment.
