Todays progress picture shows the exhaust stack , the vertical air cleaner pipe , the rear fenders and I am just starting to design the right side cab frame. Still got a ways to go before it gets the look I am after but happy so far.

Thanks ,

    The new hood will make the biggest difference . I should get going on the new hood design on Thurs. To make it look more to scale it needs to be stretched 12 inches.

Todays progress shows the first mirror assembly, the side marker light assembly, the first two cab spotlights and now i started fabricating the hood . What a fun project to finish up my garden tractor building hobby with. I'd love to build a pair of scrapers to pull behind it in parades and to display at tractor shows. :camera:

Don I think you need all of us to vote on additional implements for you to fabricate for it.  I'll start it off. I vote for a scale folding wing field cultivator with gang harrows attached.  :smilewink:
