Thanks, I like it too! The battery in it I bought back in 2011 at walmart. This time I am just going to get one at Advanced Auto Parts. Mine uses a 50-N18L-A2 battery. Only $60 bucks.

Looking sweet snowrander!  Windshield was a nice choice.
If you don't mind please share where you're going to get a battery if you get it online.  I've been asking around where to get one as I need one myself also and the opinions I have gotten back are as wide as this continent we live on.

All it needs is a new battery.

Looks like a 71-72 seat back based on the holes for the tail light. Wood goes flush at the back.
  That's great news Dave - thank you!  I think you are right - the 70 trunks almost look like old hip-roof barns right? 

Well I got started on it and made the top piece thicker (3/4") than original (1/2") just because I could.  Made the rest out of left over 1/2" Douglass fir plywood... and add a second piece on the inside of the main supports.  Pre-drilled and used wood screws on most to get the fitment right, then took apart and glued & re-assembled.  Added some short & long brad nails where necessary - should do the trick.  Its not done but hopefully a good start.



Speaking of the tail light - do the small little vertical pieces go along the edge of the 18" door just like the 15" ones did?  Or are they tight up against the light itself?  I'm thinking out towards the edge of the door..?  Is there a wood cleat at the bottom to mount the door hinge to - or doe that just attach to the seat base?




One more question - is the seat base exactly 40" long?  I've read several places that its only that long, but to me it seems that it should it be a little longer (1/2" or so) so that the front of it is able to rest on top of the smaller rib of steel that sticks up at the front of the seat.  Since the back of the trunk is flush against the base, the foam might make it protrude past 40".. ?

Thanks again for any help!!

That should look good, looks close enough to me!

I passed on a $100 dollar 71 with a stuck engine, missing seat mostly complete with a supposedly decent track this summer as I just don't have the time or space.

I was able to source out original wood pieces for a 15" 70 trunk.  Dont think its a 71 but dont really know for sure.  Regardless I think its a good starting point to build new wood for my 71 seat - just have to make each piece be 3" wider.  I hope the only difference in the internal parts of a 70 vs 71 is the foam being tapered from the trunk up to the front.

These side pieces of the example are the same shape as the ones that came on the sled, so its making me think this is the right path.  I just think they put the side pieces upside down.

question I have now is how far back does the trunk go ontop of the base wood?  Should it come up to the edge of the backside?  Or should it be forward a little bit so theres room for the foam to wrap around???  Not a lot to go by here..

These are the pieces I picked up
