I was taught to only use the word AWESOME to describe the big man above, but it slipped. Your build is stunning, thanks for letting us see the progress. :thumbs::thumbs::yelclap:

Well today we finalized the operators compartment.
Brad stopped and we did some cutting and bending on the platform.
God forgive me for cutting on Massey parts.
We now have the opera5tors platform set and will be starting to work on the hydraulics next.

Got the center console fabricated this week end and the side plates set and finalized the operator compartment.

Not much but very time consuming.
