Clifford usually looks like this. The crane parked at KI doesn't currently have that on it.

The crane hasn’t been assembled yet.  Separate truckloads will deliver the lattice structure, boom, winches, and counterweights.  
 

That unit in the lot is basically the equivalent of the turntable and crawler tracks of a tracked unit only on a wheeled chassis.

From the Flight of Fear/CHAOS queue area:

This thing is massive!!!  And for those wondering, it’s just about the same height as The Racer’s lift hill.

Question on assembly, When they bolt two pieces of track together, do they weld the smaller tubes together that the wheels roll on and then grind them down? Are they male and female and slip together? Never thought about that before but I am assuming that with them painted all ready, they are not welding them? If not welded, how do they keep water from getting inside? Would love to know the more specific details of how things go together

That's awful. Hindsight being perfect of course, maybe watermark your pictures you post. Of course, don't make the watermark as big as the photo.

I've wondered this myself. I've even tried googling it, but couldn't find an answer. Hope someone here can fill us in!

Anyone know why they are painting these buildings white?

To make them identical to the C.H.A.O.S. building. Notice the gray bottom third of the middle building. I like how they are going for thematic consistency for the area, even backstage.

I love how big Orion is... and it’s not even done yet!

Also @LovinMeSomeBanshee, did you enjoy your trip through the cornfield last night?

It was my wife’s favorite Haunt!  But my wife kept getting impatient with me because I wanted to stop and look at all the footers, lol

I think every building in that area is being painted to match the new “Area 72” theming that FoF already has.
