Due to medical concerns I can no longer drive, but I still want to get out and do without relying on other folks for transportation. I've researched the various plans here and believe that the Loderunner is my best option, but putting it together is going to require some tools and expertise beyond my own. I live in the Spokane, WA area and hope that someone here on the forums will have some place for me to start.

Because my family tends to be tough on equipment, and I'm no exception, I need to make this build durable. I expect that I will need someone who can weld up a frame and a machinist for some of the other parts. I can handle the rest of build myself without problems. My budget is rather limited because of my disabilities, so I need a resource that can accommodate that aspect as well.

I would also appreciate any suggestion or recommendations from folks from their own experiences during their own builds.

Maybe some college kid would like the experience.

Look on Craig’s List in Welding services (120 listed) also search welding in Spokane on the net, look for Air Plane repair services, auto performance shops, muffler shops, automotive machine shops, fencing, trailer repair. Also, put a Want Ad on Craig’s list for the services that you need. That is the way that I found my welder, machine shop and powder coater close by.
