Well, finished the other fender, got them welded in, braces welded under rear of fenders, & bolted to the running boards. Slid the seat assembly off the other JB just in case I get to go to plow day tomorrow. As you can see in the messy background, I('m still doing vinyl siding too.
Later I will be putting flashing lights on the fenders when I can afford, and likely a rear work light too. Plenty of room on those wide fenders. Thinking of adding seat rails, but mounting to the fenders.

Looks terrific Daniel. That thing is a brute. I don't think you have to worry about not being able to pull the plow, might have to pull a 4 bottom just to slow it down so you aren't pushing the guy in front of you :D

Definitely not a question of power, but of traction. If I do get to go to plow day tomorrow, I'll just be taking the plow as a 1 bottom. There's limited ground, so don't wanna "Hog" the ground up! LOL

My BIL "meangreen" does not like the radiator cap access in the hood, but I'm keeping it! You can't put much stock in what a green guy says anyway! :poke::bigrofl:

Daniel, I think I found a complete MF14 with mower deck for 200.00.. Going to look at it in the next few days. A friend of mine has it, and told me today that he will sell it to me.

BIL meangreen & I were talking tonight before we loaded the tractors for plow day tomorrow. Looking at my wide fenders, we figured to strap a cooler on one fender, and a grill on the other. Wouldn't have to stop plowing for a cold drink & a hot dog!:rofl2:

That thing is a brute... Better be in front of your BIL, that way you can pull your plow and tow that JD at the same time.

Looks really good Daniel.
