WHS Site and Forum Registration. (24 Jul 2018)

I have changed the way registration is done for the site. I deleted over 300 spammers, (and prob a few good ones) last weekend alone. The forum can be seen by all the public and with 15K visitors a day, a lot of them younger people I can't take the chance on something ugly showing up on the site like is happening on the FB sites and other forums. The only pretty full proof way I can think of to keep the place clean is the new way of doing things.

On the front page under the pic it reads, "Due to all the spammers the register link for the WHS Forum has been removed. If you want to sign up for the WHS Forum just give us a call, information is on the contact us page. Thank You."

So that's where we are now lol. You can give me a call at and I can set you up. It's a lot more work for me but I feel it's worth it to keep the site clean :thumb1

This belongs to Scott Powers, he has been a member here since last August. I think we've been talking about restoring it since then but he's been doing a lot of work on it when he gets time. You can chime in what what all you have done Scott. :thumb1

He and his family were here all afternoon going over things and checking out the World of Wheel Horse. He has a very smart wife (she was giving good ideas on how to reinforce the hood among other things) and 2 great boys. We'll get started on it Monday and they will be following along in here.


The biggest hold up will be waiting till the end of this week when it hits the 40's to pressure wash it, and getting with Terry on the decals. I think this is new territory for us all. Sandra already said she's not pressure washing it in that cold a temp. Gotta get a rain suit I guess so I don't freeze to death. :rolling


Here she is.

You’ll have fun with that. Always thought they looked odd with the front suspended like that.

Was this a Wheel Horse option? If so what was the purpose?

The Air Horse is an air tug, made to move planes around. The tug portion was made by Tiffin Aire and they still make them. You can look at them here - Tiffin Aire LINK

Here are the before pics.

We'll be replacing most of the sheet metal including the fan cover, and changing a few things like making some custom light mounts and painting the tug red + black with ivory wheels to make it all match. The hood will also be reinforced where it can't be seen. Scott wants it pretty nice when it's done. :)

Yesterday was a wild day, but we did manage to get it all checked out, ready for the pressure washer, and Terry and I got the decals figured out. The decal pic below is before we got the lettering on the Warning decal figured out. Most of it was gone and almost impossible to read but between Rhodes, Sandra and I, the right lighting and magnifiers, we finally got it. :)

She's getting pressure washed tomorrow. Normally we don't do restorations in the Winter because we usually can't pressure wash, but this has been an unusual Winter. Will put up some pics if I don't freeze to death first. :rolling


I ordered a full rain suit that came in today, that should help a lot.
