Man, Don, you are a lucky guy you can plow each snow fall with a different tractor :peace:

 

 

As for actually having snow, not so much. I dread the stuff, we may get some this Sunday :boo_hoo:

Thanks ,

   It is still hard to see how it is going to look . As I get going on the front of the cab it should start to look better. The cab will be green after all. :thumbs:

The yellow looks nice too :D

  We got 5 inches of new snow last night so i will be playing in the snow today :bigrofl:

  Todays cab progress shows the front overhang now roughed in and the first curved door braces built.

  I have changed the design from the original idea. :hitting_self_roller:

3 more inches of snow last night and 9 inches predicted for tonight :thumbs:

  Talked to the jd dealer and he said my new 758 4x4 tractor is built and on the semi heading for Michigan. :dancingbanana:

   Handbuilt Tractor Cab progress today shows me starting to build the curved doors. Even though the cab is bigger than planned I sat in it a few times and I love it already. To heck with how it looks :smilewink:

One question what changes are you going to do to the headlights that are mounted in the fender, since one will be inside the cab & the other will be outside. Is there going to be a problem with light being reflected back from the light inside the cab.

The right side fender lights have now been removed and the space filled in . The four fender lights will be remounted in the front overhang of the cab after I cut out the holes for them to be recessed in.

  Today I will order the Lexan for the cab windows. Here is a scrap piece I had and I put it in my sheet metal bender the other morning when it was 17 degrees . I thought it might crack but it bend perfect with no problem. :dancingbanana:

  We got 2 more inches of snow again last night and 15 more inches in the forecast for tonight and tomorrow :thumbs:

  Just wished I had my new John Deere with the 54 inch snowblower :bigrofl:
