My thanks to all. Tell all the ladies I said Happy Mothers Day!
Wait until you see the finished product. Won't put the decals on right away so the paint has plenty of cure time. Got the blue on the seat pan this morning, once dry enough, I will add my signature charcoal to it.

Just an update. Everything is painted, waiting for seat pan mounts to arrive, Should have them by Fri. evening. I will have to put the ugly seat back on. Haven't had time to check locally for a new cover for it. Wheels will be charcoal, but no time right now. Look for pics Saturday.

Well, the moment has finally arrived. For your viewing enjoyment, here is my LGT 165 in new clothes.

I plan to do the wheels in the charcoal color, and hopefully find a new seat cover soon.

Received the decals for Daniel yesterday. They are awesome. Maybe get them on this weekend, depending on rain forecast.

Haven't looked for tail lights yet. I need to check pics of tractors that had them, as mine had no lenses on them. Not sure what I'm looking for. I guess any red marker lights would work. Need to check wiring also. The head lights worked for a while after I put them back together, now won't come on.

Ford had decals there. With a white seat pan, they are blue. I haven't figured why the PO drilled the hole in the center.
