It looks a little cold sitting out there! Hope you took it back in by the fire.

Very nice!

 

That was the first day, since Nov. that the wind wasn't blowing, or it wasn't snowing, or

it was bitter cold. It went all the way up to -4c. I was out sandblasting some parts, with

out a jacket, and enjoying it.

Today I filled the rears with washer fluid, and installed the inner split MF weights.

43 lbs fluid, 38 lbs inner weights, and 55 lbs outer weight per tire, = 272 lbs extra weight total.

Looking good Will, that should give you enough traction to pull the plow through the dirt.

 

Good Stuff  :thumbs:

Those look good on there. I bet getting those all lined up by yourself was a chore. How many fingers did you smash?

Yeah, it was tricky. No smashed fingers, only sore knees.

Now, why on earth would I do that? :smilewink:

 

I will Kenny, I promise.

That keeps you from smashing fingers!

Don't you just love the fresh little nubbies on new tires...looks real nice Will. White was definitely the way to go on the weights.

I still think purple would have been more eye catching.
