I got the cab mounted this afternoon and repainted. It's my best buy this week for $100.00 . It's now back in the workshop and I will build the front windshield frame and buy some Lexan for it.

Got the new door hinge welded on and both doors put on. Not bad looking. Now I'm cutting and bending the windshield frame parts to support the Lexan . We'll see how well it holds up scratch wise this winter.

I got the windshield frame done and I'm teasting it to see it has plenty of clearance for the hood to open. Now I am building a overhead visor to help stop some of the rain and wet snow on the windshield. Will paint the frame and visor this afternoon.

Those cabs look great Don! I might have to have you build me one so I can finally use the blower I have for the '75!

Thanks !
I think I got enough projects now to keep me busy for the next year, and that is ALL GOOD . I am really enjoying my first month not building toys for the first time in 15 years. Did I ever mention I love garden tractors ?? :dancingbanana:

Today I got the Lexan installed in the front cab window and attached the home made visor . Then I mounted 4 headlights on top of the visor . I am now drilling holes to attach four side cab lights and two rear red lights and then i will build a support bracket on the back of the cab towards the top edge for the mini strobe light. I am having so much fun . :smilewink:

It doesn't seem like work , after waiting over 15 years to get to play with garden tractors I still can't believe I am finally doing it. I can't get to the shop fast enough every morning . I currently have about 10 projects I am working on and I'm going to buy another project after lunch today. If this is wrong , I don't want to be right !! :thumbs:

I picked up this 2 stage snowblower this afternoon and got more plans for it. Today I got the rear lights mounted on the cab and I am designing a manual windshield wiper now.

I finished the home made manual wiper for the cab today , nothing fancy but very inexpensive. I also got the MF 51 inch snowblower sanded and got the yellow parts painted. Tomorrow I'll paint the fan, fan housing , and augers black.
