That looks really cool. You have done a great job.
The idea of a powerglide in a flat isn't real popular. It is nice, if you set it up right, to have a neutral, but most flats don't perform as well with them. The power never makes up for the added weight, etc.
But if it is just a cruiser, it would be cool to be able to jump between neutral and in gear.
Good luck with the project. It looks way cool!

And I understand the two years on one project. It isn't easy, but it is so gratifying to cruise in what you have built.

No Powerglide going in it,won't work with the whirl-a-way:duh:......I'll save it for the Rayson LP 12* no whirl-a-way. The neutral would have been nice for putting on the trailer and pulling up to the dock. Just can't see it being used just for that,but the Rayson will with no type of prop release.....:partyguy:
