The  tractor the wife commandeered is just about done. Got it back together and running today.  I just need to fabricate, finish and install a couple covers.  Decals should be ready tomorrow.   Parade on Thursday.  The granddaughters will see for the first time then.   I think they will like "Tinkerbell" .  Will try to get more pics. after the decals are installed.   Rick

Nice job! Are those rear rims 2 piece? It looks like the centers are bolted to the rims.

Those are regular G.T. rims.   Just painted the centers.  Added acorn nuts in the weight mounting holes.  Rick

That turned out great. I love the 2 tone wheel treatment. A nice touch with the acorn nuts!

The tractor is a Wheel Horse CG7 Lawn tractor.  I changed the engine from an 8 hp to an 11 hp.  Raised the seat/fenders and changed over to 23x9.50x 12" rear wheels/tires and  4.80x8" front wheel/tires.  It was a freebie that begged  to have something done to it.  I just didn't realize how much I would be doing.  Told the wife she can't have it back until after it has been through a parade and two or three local shows.     Rick
