I'm sure you're doing some sort of custom decal work, so I'm waiting for that "POP" that decals give GT's. Looking great as-is!
But you really need to spray some red on a tractor at least once! :smilewink:

That looks good Don and if the grandson doesn't like it would you be interested in adopting a 67 year old grandson? Nice looking break sitting behind you.

I really do like all colors of tractors and a red one in my garage is not unrealistic next summer. Or maybe even a orange one , possibly one of each , I even like Oliver so maybe one of those too, ha,ha.
Even though the grandson is still a baby it is fun knowing I am thinking of him as he is so far away in D.C. Plus I'm sure my daughter likes the fact I love that little boy of hers so much . Get to see them in a few weeks and he can check it out. I'm going to put three or four levers on each side of the seat for him to play with and a nice shifting lever down below he can reach with some blinking led lights on the cool shifting knob. I guess i am enjoying this too , ha,ha.
I better pass on anymore grandsons for now as I got to learn how first with this little guy , ha,ha. Tonight I'll post the picture of the jd 730 with green paint on it if I can find time between cutting out Komatsu parts, ha,ha.

Kenny, my wife might want to debate you on half of that statement.

Don, Speaking of maybe Orange, it wouldn't take much more work to make the other one look like a D-21 A/C puller... :thumbs:

Looknig GREAT, Don ! Your grandson will be the only kid at the pedal pull, with a functioning exhaust stack !

May want to add a set of pedals, just to make it believable. :smilewink: :thumbs:

A orange one would be fun !! , pedals sound like a good idea, ha,ha. Here is a picture of it with the right side chrome diamond plating on the running board and the front chrome tank being fitted on the front of the frame. Tomorrow I'll paint the yellow on both hoods and next week I'll get the decals on.

Hey Don,
If you want you can bring that over here and my older grandsons will break it in for yours!

Great looking machines and an excellent testament to your work ethic.

Got a ways to go before it will be completely done. Here is the next progress picture showing the yellow on both tractors. By next weekend they should look pretty cool. I got the cab roughed in for the Komatsu and the first track frame welded together also today.
