Thanks , I will do some wet sanding on the green parts and do a little buffing to bring out the shine now the green is dry.

This photo from today shows me buffing the fenders. I got both hood tops done and the fenders done and the seat support plate done. I hand wet sand the parts first, then hand rub each part with wheeling compound , then fire up the buffer and wheel once with compound and switch bonnets and last pass is with final finish liquid . I'm not a good painter or body shop guy but overall it shines pretty good. The hood on the 730 really shines great too.

Think I'll need a lot of practice to get something nice and shinny like those. They really look great Don.

thanks, you got to be careful on fresh paint not to get buffing burns , if the buffer stays in one place to long especially a corner it will heat up quick and leave a burn . That's a no, no. I still get them sometimes.

Todays progress picture shows the cool shifter knob with led blinking lights and the first decals confirming this to be Terak's tractor, ha,ha.

You can park that work of art in my yard any time you need more room. Turned out beautiful.

Sweet! That did bring it all together. Decals have a way of doing that! Great looking tractor!
