That is one dream tractor.  I bet if you decided to make RT #2, you would have a couple people willing to buy it from you.

 

That includes me.

Ray,
What diameter are you looking for in the headlights?

 

I think the little 4 inch diameter like these would look best on the Shaw.

Rummaging thru my junk this afternoon, I came across an old pair of light housings and what looks like home made mounting brackets.

They were used as fog lights on an old 1946 Plymouth that I had back in the late 60's.

I didn't even remember that I still had them.

 

They don't have the bulb or lens and they are bent up some but I think they would make nice headlights for the Shaw tractor.

I'm going to see if I can get them straightened out and mounted before next weeks show.

I tried to sell this one once to help pay for an eye surgery that I needed but no one thought it was forth as much as I did.

Ray the lights really do make it look "finished", great job! It was just the other day that I even found out about this build. What a great read that was! Impressed isn't even a big enough word to describe what i think of your Fab skills! :worshippy1:

That was a fun show.

Jerome's dad and mom were going to walk around to look at all the tractors.

Well there are over 1,000 tractors at the Buckley shows and it was a hot day.

So I put the cart behind the R/T and told Jerome's dad to hop on the tractor and put his mom on the cart.

They had a ball and were both grinning from ear to ear.

I was worried when I first starting reading, but of course, you made it look great and a professional install as usual!

They do look really good and finish the tractor.

I think I can speak for all us nuts when I say that we couldn't afford to store it, even if we could have bought it. Based on the amount of work and attention to detail you put into it we all knew any price you were asking was more than fair. I actually had considered buying it myself, but chickened out after seeing how many tractors I already have sitting outside, and not being able to store it would never have done it the proper justice. Thanks.
