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

I got the hood painted yesterday, I'll get it on tomorrow (hopefully)! ~~ Lowell

Got the hood on today:

Made the "optional" tool tray today too:

Now for the 70 I decals (the post office lost them, they left Albuquerque, NM by "Priority Mail" on the 14th, should have been here a week ago)! :mad2:

New low-back black seat should be here first of the week.

Then it's whatever else I can come up with to "dress it up"! ~~ Lowell

Great job! I have a JD100 I planned on painting like a bumble bee. Now I've got to come up with a new idea, I already got a few.

That's a great job. I like the tool tray.

The chair is pretty neat as well, being mostly reclaimed.

It's looking great Lowell. Another unique tractor to add to your collection.

Nice work. You certainly make it look quick and easy. I like the "industrial" yellow.

Looks like your project is coming to a close, unless you have loose ends to take care of like your tow bar modification.

May not put a tow bar on this one, haven't decided yet. Would like to find a #40 blade for it though! ~~ Lowell

I picked up an "unused" newer JD 42" blade yesterday that will be modified to fit the 70I;

I'll have to cut one mounting arm & move it 3/8", then figure out the lift arm modifications needed! ~~ Lowell
