The work you do on these tractors is absolutely incredible! I wish I had a fraction of the knowledge and skill you do for metal working. Some people may not agree with your choices....then they are more than welcome to keep their opinions to themselves! My mom always said "if you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all".

I am truly impressed with your work and love to see your pictures! Keep up the great work!!

Todays progress picture on number Tractor 9 you can see the welded up exhaust stack . I cut up the stock exhaust and used the elbows and straight pieces and re cut them to get this configeration and then welded it all back together. I never had a flapper before so thought that would look cool. I am really starting to like this tractor . Just another fun project to pull a lawn trailer around the yard . Just another project to keep busy during the winter months . Can't wait just a few more days and this tractor will be far enough along to leave the shop and pull in the 4x4 project. My wife just laughs and says she is so glad I don't hang at the bars.   :big_hug:

From junkyard bound to looking pretty good again this project tractor is taking shape. Got a few more things to do but it will make a great rig to haul a garden cart or wagon around doing yard work. I want to build a actuator working three point hitch with a cute rear snow blade or a belley mounted grader blade. :peace:

Nice work Don.  I am a firm believer that its your stuff so you can do what you want to with or to it.  Cut, paint, weld, create!  If the purists dont like it, they dont have to look.  The rest of us think your work is amazing, keep it up.
