No rear remotes Bill, but I do have a long hydraulic cylinder that would work. We'll see how the hand jack works first. :D

My last post , thanks everyone for being so nice to me but it looks like I stepped on someones toes by painting a garden tractor the wrong color. I'm BAD This is about me and my last years enjoying what i want to do with garden tractors and painting them any color I wish. To eliminate anyone else getting bothered by it it is easier to leave. Thanks again , it was a lot of fun.

Don, not sure what is going on but I do know that you will be missed. I really hope you reconsider. Whenever I log on and see an update on your thread it is the first one I read. Your ingenuity and attention to detail is amazing.

Don, don't give up on us. Sorry what someone said made you feel like leaving. Sometimes when someone pokes a little fun at you it may be taken the wrong way and I'm pretty sure that's what happened. Everyone here enjoys your posts and love to look at the excellent talent you have for building things. I poke fun at people from time to time and also receive a little joshing now and then. Stay with us, i enjoy looking at all that green paint even if my favorite color is red.

I honestly meant my comment as a joke and if it was offensive I apologize, I love your collection and don't care a bit about color.
You do amazing work and I always look to see what new toys you have come up with and what you've done to make them even better, this topic is always my first stop when I log on. Please don't give up on us! :worshippy1:

If it's the post I am thinking about, I never gave it a thought as to being serious. I think the guy is 100% behind you in all you do. Don, people with your talent are very few and far between. People willing to share that talent in a format like this are even fewer. You sir are probably one of the best there is from what I have seen. I know guys who can do good fab work, but not at the volume that you do. That's what sets you apart from the rest. I think I can speak for all when I say we've been truly blessed by what you have been posting. We're fab junkies and we need to get our fix, sometimes on a daily basis. You fullfill those needs in grand fashion. I'm a purest when it comes to certain tractors (the more rare ones) but others, I really couldn't care any less if you painted them pink and put blue stripes on them. Be yourself when you do those projects as that's what makes them special. Please reconsider and continue to share your wonderful world with us. We need our fix!

Not all people have the same sense of humor. Don has been offended and I don't think you'll ever see him back on here. I suggest you go to his web site to follow him.

WOW... gone for a few days and come back to see THIS ! ! !

 

Don is a talent all his own.  It takes serious vision to do what he does and make it look PERFECT.  So sorry to hear of this news, it's just not right.  I have his website saved in my favorites, guess I'll have to visit him there.

Somehow I have missed this news until now. And news it is, Don is going to be dearly missed around here! If you guys go look at his profile, he was last active when he made the post saying he was going to leave. I know I have said several things about the colors he paints his tractors, but it really does not affect me. He does great work, I guess I will have to follow him on his website.
