I'm back in the workshop today after a fun 16 days with my daughter , son-in-law and grandson. I know my grandson is hooked on grandpas tractors now at 2.5 years old. He got to ride on his hot rod jd with his daddy for the first time and he loved it. Along with riding on 6 other tractors , ha,ha.
Todays picture shows me holding the starter , I did not like how it looked so I removed it and redid the hood to the nice smooth look again. I also redid the exhaust to come up through the hood instead of out the side . And I redesigned the air cleaner so i could get a clener look on the left side of the hood too. I cut out the first parts today for the jd 45 loader that will mount on the mini 730 . Then I will build a old fashioned manure spreader to hook behind it. When I sell it I think it will look much nicer with the loader and the spreader on it. John Deere 4020 still needs to be back in the shop to get the hood reworked and get rid of the yellow stripe and build the front side trim/borders . Still want to build the five bottom plow for it . Got to build some wheely bars for the hot rod jd as it tends to want to do a wheely , ha,ha. Not sure yet what I want to build behind the jd 9630 but I got plenty to keep me busy , ha,ha.
