Was not sure how I would do the steering end of the hood and match up the 15 in hood to the 11 inch frame. Last night in bed it came to me lol. Got at it first thing this morning. I capped the frame and made it look two inches wider on each side. Used brackets to hold it to frame. This part will be buffed not painted. I cut the rear end of hood to match the front angle to keep the lines right.

Worked on closing in the nose today. I am glad I notched the frame so the fuel tank won't block to much of the grill. Added a 1/4 flat stock bumper just in case. These parts will be buffed not painted. Next up is the pod and dash panel.

You may have missed my question, but how did you make that nose?

The nose cone I used a fine pressed wood with three coasts of epoxy resin the first coat having glass hair cut into it. A little unconventional but turned out pretty good. The resin is very strong.

Worked on getting things lined up and bolted today on the hood. I used 1/4 round head bolts that I will buff a bit and not paint. I made it so 4 bolts remove the complete unit. With all the angles it has turned out to be very solid..There will be a master plug for wiring between the hood and tractor so it should be easy to remove.

Well got some more done on the beast... I installed a drive shaft support bearing, made the dash and tunnel cover. Sheet metal is about done except for the side covers that I will do once the engine is in place. Had my injection pump opened up from 26cc to 100cc. At the moment waiting on my billet flywheel from the machine shop then I can get the engine in place.

Well time to do some painting. Waiting on billet flywheel and some other odds and ends so figure I will paint it. It will be Allis orange except these parts I will buff this to chrome.  Was pretty happy I can strip it down to the frame in under 30 mins. Looks pretty naked without the panels lol. Painting aluminum is alot more time consuming with the extra prep work involve.

Wow that is great. You do this. It is real neat to see things come along. One question who did you have work on your injection pump?

Injection pump was done by a local person up here in Quebec. Well got the aluminum all cleaned up and primed with epoxy then a coat of build primer it took a few days. Today I painted her but could not bring myself to paint it just simple orange lol. I went with a copper orange pearl color. I did three base coats and 4 clear coats to give me some room to buff it some. The next few days will be buffing the remaining aluminum parts to a chrome.
