Mornin, well for me neway, just for the record, thx but I dont consider my Fords to be very nice tractors, 'Yet'..lol. I have hardly touched either of them at this point other than a little body work and the exhaust on the 165, but I decided I wanted an lgt and ended up with two, and thx Tom for the mention on the RaM... thats kind of the pride of the lot, been with me since about '87.

I expect some of you have seen me on other forums, but I havent 'left' those forums, just wanted to ad more, since I work nights, the wife works days, and we live on a farm... I communicate more with my dogs than humans most of the time.

So the battery covers... those cheap plastic things Im sure many of you, like me, are missing. I started to work on a steel replacement last spring but then we had major flooding around Calgary and I only got as far as a prototype, since it usually slows down at work a bit around xmas I expect to be able to get back on that project, the blanks will get punched out on a cnc machine and then bent and welded by a couple of my rookies, we're an ISO certified company so the rookies arent allowed to weld commercial products but managment has approved a small run of these covers for training purposes, so I offered on another forum that if somebody needs a replacement cover I can likely help you out, they wont be perfect original replacements but they will be close enough that most ne1 should be able to make them work, cost will be minimal, shipping rounded up to the nearest $5 kind of thing, a one time offer and I need to know ahead of time. Im not looking for profit and I wont be able to make alot of them, maybe 12-15 out of a single sheet of 20ga steel, which will cost me about $75 in total. I believe 7-8 of them are already spoken for.

Hey Lance,

New Westminster 5 blocks up the hill from the Fraser, I was hanging by ropes installing metal work on top of 40 storey buildings around the lower mainland, but Im older now so I try keeping a little closer to ground zero.
