Well, at least he learned how to save some hassle. Now I'd like to know what he needs to snowblow the backyard for. :?


My tractor shop is in the basement. So I have to have access to the back garage door. In summer We'l take some pictures of the shop and how I got it laid out. I'll need to empty it out in spring to do a good cleaning

Makes sense, and that Spring cleaning is required in my shop too, and that scares me lol.

If nobody offers these hood decals, then I'd be interested in making a template to offer them for sale. I typically try to find decals not offered by anyone else that are within my abilities to make. These I can make, but will be layered instead of printed. With close-up pics & accurate dimensions, I can make them, but would take a while to get patterned. Once patterned, the hardest work is over.

I shouldnt have a problem getting new decals custom made.


If you get decals made, let us all know. I'm in for a set for sure. All the decals are different; shifter, PTO, Hi/Lo. My 800 is low on my resto list, so if you get to it first I'd be happy to share the cost.

I will keep that in mind. BTW when I do get them made they will be printed like the originals.

Yeah the 800's decals are completely different. If you look close even the "800" down the middle of the hood is a different font from the rest (900,1000,600 , other 800)

Here is a 63' compared to a 65' 800

I really like the decals on the hood of these tractors. I think im going to restore this round fender instead of the 600 or 900 we have. The hood is in rough shape, but I want to test my skills and see what I can do with it. Dont be looking for the finished project for a long time, the 1250 needs to be done first.


I agree... I love the hood detail on this machine!!

Adam's "racecar" SHO has been neglected when this new hobby came around, but mine is pretty. (:
