It's looking really sharp. Good idea with the work stand.

That is a cool stand. Didn't pay much attention to it before. I'll have to check out the gallery pics.

Wade that looks great! And doing the rims like the mf's was a great idea!
I'll keep my eyes out for a steering wheel and hood. Do you have the belt guard?

Chris, Yes i have the guard. I did not put it on yet. While I was testing the plow I was also testing the input pulley friction stop I fabbed. That worked great also so I will put the guard on this week when I pull the plow for paint. I bent a piece of strap metal I had sheared and welded it to the linkage. Added a piece of brake lining I had left from the brake band I made earlier.
I have had that guard off quiet a few times myself working on that pulley brake. That looks good! When I went on my first test ride The pulley brake was worn out so I was using a block of wood to stop the pulley so I could test the different gears LOL.

Looks good Wade! Cool friction stop fab. Sounds like Chris might be using that idea. Is there any way you could patch a piece back into the hood and weld up the holes? I'm sure it's pretty thin, but 'stitch' welding might help keep it from warping. Or, if you know some one that does body work on cars.
