Test fit the pilot on a new TC before you try to install it
Take pride in your work. Even when you are just learning.
Friday, I picked up some steel plates and square tube to make a transmission crossmember. The frame mounts are basically ready, I'll trim them to fit on Sunday. Then I can cut and fit the main tube. Here is a picture of the current progress. The welds aren't pretty, but I think they will hold. Maybe, I can try again over the winter.
