Those MTD footrests just look right on it, especially with the punch foot grip holes. I like it, good work.

Looking good! I like your bumper also. Would be good to put a winch on! What are you using to fix the hood with?

Thought so. I had a few thin spots in the GTV/16 hood and the body filler w/strands is what he used to fill them. Carry on! That's going the be real nice when it's all done.

Lowell, What are the wheel wieghts from, they look great. I also like the stand, it would work for several GT's I would think.

GREAT Job!!!

Just now read this thread. The front grill looked kinda strange to me at first install, but after it's all finished I see what you had seen all along! Nice work, and she's sharp now, so just wait till that hood is finished & on her! :thumbs:

Laid down some fiberglass in the hood this morning;

Then, this afternoon, I gave the 70I it's first job. Hauling some gravel with the 10P;

The wheel weights are 5# & 10# barbell weights, plugged the center holes with plastic pipe plugs. Mostly just for looks! ~~ Lowell

That's a great idea for wheel weights, thanks for sharing. They remind me of the front weights on the L and LA JD's.

I thought those were really wheel weights, not repurposed barbell weights. Great idea.

I thought they were actual wheel weights as well! Good thinking using barbels!

Nice weights and tractor. Looks rather naked without the hood though. LOL
