Todays progress picture shows me getting the light boxes all welded together and attaching them on the rear of the little tractor . Now I am cutting out the first circle for the wheels . :camera:

If it wouldn't be for the ball hitch on the back you'd swear it was a full size tractor. Keep up the good work!  :thumbs:

Todays progress picture shows the new design for the center of the rims. They look much nicer than the four long bolts that hold the duels on and now you can't see all the original lug holes . :camera:

Very nice, having that filled in makes the tire look even bigger. Looks great.

I am very pleased with the progress so far. The cab windows and the yellow stripes and decals will really make a big difference. Then the bright yellow Degelman blade on the front will even make it cooler yet . It's going to be great fun plowing snow with it.

Don that's the second time you stated plowing with it  I take it your not going to build a large lexon dust case in your living room for it cause that is one fine piece of art you are building.

That is turning out great! Your metal work amazes me. Is that a narrow front tractor sneaking into the picture on the left?
