   started making repairs today, plugging holes and re-drilling them in the linkages to take the slop out of it, blasted the seat pan and front frame so I could fix them both.  the frame was worse than I thought, If I had known it was this bad I would have repaired it sooner.  got it done and got the seat pan welded back up, tomorrow more blasting and grinding to make everything pretty for the paint.  need to fix the hood as well it is pretty beat up.  may even look for a replacement depending on what I find after I blast it.

   been very busy today, got all the parts I have blasted ready for paint primed and the first coat of color on there.  looks really good rite now, I have all the seals ordered for the bgb so I can get that put together next week.  hopefully start to re-assemble this week.  got to order up some new hardware.  need to look thru my parts pile, the front end I have is very badly worn, I know I have a new front axle and think I have the plate it hooks to out there. otherwise I need to repair these.

   Still cleaning parts, got the bgb all cleaned up and ready for paint, now all I need are the seals.  started on the small stuff like the steering gears ect.  looking for ss hardware for putting it back together.  tried my hand at making a side cover, been at it for two days, this one looks ok but I think I can get it closer.  try again tomorrow.

    Yes I did make it but it is not quite rite, the corners are to sharp and the divit is to deep, if you look close at the pic you can see it.  I have a new template made and am going to give it a try tomorrow, not sure why I cut this one out and drilled the holes.  not sure what I am going to do with it.

    Now I am happy, the side panel came out excellent!!!!  I wish I had seen how bad this tractor had been beaten up so bad, I am burning thru all me parts replacing things on this that are hacked or broken.  getting to the bottom of the stack now, hopefully I can start to re-assemble this weekend.

   I used the press brake at work, cut a template out of a 3/16" plate to match the divot in the panel.  then placed it correctly between two flat plates and pressed it together to get the results.  I am actually pretty impressed with the result myself.

If you can make a panel you can make a hood!
