Started to put this together out of stuff laying around the workshop.
First you get a Farm King Tractor.
Then 2 old chairs out of a school cafeteria.
Find some angle irons from an old bed.
Rear fenders and floor boards from an old Ariens rider
Some odds and ends of bolts and assorted hardware.

Put em in a bag shake it up and this is what comes out !!!

A PACK RAT TRACTOR

Needs a whip antenna and maybe some paint ? any other ideas would be welcome !

Honestly I could put it back to original and be mowing with it in a couple of hours.

Next year I plan to ride around the GT shows instead of walking until I drop..

Well just thought I should share this.

Looks like you will be getting padded seats after the first show lol. Other than that I think it looks alright.

Love it. IT needs a bench seat though.

Who Steers ?? good question I guess it must be built for European drivers so who ever sits on the right gets control.

I like the idea of padding the seats and should have a bench seat on it. Then all I would have to do is put the deck on and use it as a mower..

This was inspired by one that I put together for a friend of mine a couple of years ago. I used an old Harley golf cart body that was laying here and used a 110 JD tractor supplied by him.. Sure learned a lot about fiberglass as I had to shorten the body by about 6 inches and reshape it over the wheels , Pic below before we got the decals.

Again thanks for the ideas..
