Worked some yesterday evening, and just a few minutes today to finish the headlight mounting.  She's coming together slowly but surely.

Nothing like going to a tractor show to get a guy enthused about working on his tractor.   Looks good.   :thumbs:

Had to run to Lowes last night, so picked up a couple "quick nuts" to mount my grill emblem.

Hood on, need some chain for hood stay.  Plus I have to find/figure out some sort of new side chrome stay strips, and new bolt clips for the hood top/center chrome.  Got my engine decal from Terry at Midwest Custom Graphics.

Daniel, Can you use the trim off of a D4-10? I have some that I could part with.

Thanks Brian, but I have the trim, and in good shape, but the plain steel mount insert is shot.  So rusty it's expanded tight into the stainless.  I have it in the E-tank so I can remove the mount steel without damaging the stainless.   I have some stainless steel 10/24 thread carriage bolts & stainless nylock nuts coming.  All I have to do is remove the OE steel mount strips, then grind down the rounded carriage head flat, then grind flats opposite on the head edge down to .438" or so, then they will slide into the stainless trim to fasten it to the hood.  The carriage heads measure .454", so I can make a decent flat edge on both sides to grip the stainless trim.
