Just found this thread.

Nicely done. Looks sooo much better than before.

To nice to sell.

 

Here is another option for the lever grips.

 

I've had the same paint crackling  problem a couple of times.

I think it was because I tried to coat over an uncured thick previous coat.

On the hydraulic levers, my next attempt is something like a wooden gun grip. I'll carve it out whole and fit it on the levers, then split it down the middle with the bandsaw. Something like this:

Blower and tire chains are back on. After a couple of minor issues, she did well. Very happy with the results.

I like those pics because it really shows how 'off' the off-white paint is.

Still fine tuning that. I'm putting a bit more curve to the chute and enclosing the bottom more. The snow plume in the pic only landed 10' away from the tractor. So now I'm going for a more angled chute, and sacrificing some distance. Video tomorrow, hopefully.

That's a LOT of WHITE.

Decals are on, they are top notch. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

Still got an eye out for a replacement steering wheel, and still shopping for new headlights.

Looking good Scott, get those last few items done and it will be perfect !! Then your gonna sell it ? Or have you become attached ?

Take the rest of the day off, and go enjoy a baseball game or something.
