Todays picture shows the new fenders now on and the Bolens tires and rims attached to the new rear wheel adaptors. Today I am working on the front grill and hood. I will also redesign the front exhaust to a vertical big tractor looking exhaust stack. I know some of you will be pissed off about the colors but this tractor was also one step from the junkyard . I saved four junkyard tractors now that would have been stripped of a few parts and crushed.  Try to see the positive and the enjoyment I get from these garden tractors, thanks.

I'm afraid now if I say too much about my projects or show too much that someone will be offended as in the past. I'm trying to be very careful not to let that happen again. When it gets farther along I will post a picture of the front progress. :(

I have figured out that no matter what i do someone will be offended by it. I just try to not offend myself now.

 

Tractor looks good - no matter what color it is.

Don, I've been off the site for a while and get back on and FANTASTIC, I see your work.  Life is too short to worry about what someone else thinks.  Your work speaks for itself and the color choice is yours and if someone doesn't like it, tough sh _ _ .  Great to see you back and hope to continue following your amazing projects.

Thanks , this really is a nice place to share my garden tractor projects with a nice bunch of people .

By fall I might be done with garden tractors and move on to custom pedal tractors so you only have to put up with me a few more months. :wave:

Your welcome here no matter what don you do great work wether it be your models gts or your next adventure of pedal tractors im sure theyll be just as interesting to watch your build of them as well. As for offending people that you paint a certian tractor green who cares there in your collection.I myself could care,less what color it is im looking at the detail that has gone into the making of your amazing mini tractors and just wish i had your skill to fabricte some of the things that you have done on your projects.
