Working on the bumper, almost the same as Hulk II. It looks like 2 months to build up tire funds, but my Grandson wants me to start on the JD-165 soon. Trying to stay off credit.

Installed the bumper, trying to convince the banker we don't need so much in the savings account.

With the jack stand underneath it, have you considered that machine needs red pinstripes?

It will be un-badged like the others unless someone comes up with a decal set for the Craftsman II series.

Front end alignment. I put the rims on and it wasn't looking quite right. I tightened the lugs on the rear rims and ran a string around the rims. It was telling, Then I started adjusting and found the tie rod ends had different thread counts (one was barely attached). So I started there and got the tie rods threads at 3/4" then adjusted equally till the string showed alignment. I had to re-set the steering wheel 3 notches to center it. All looks good now.

:tapping_fingers: Tires first! I book marked it, I need 2 sets and $300 is a little out of the scope right now.

Well, after some discussion with the Boss, I was allowed to purchase the tires and decals, Thanks Brandon for the link! I'll definitely be taking BOH to the October show in Temple.

If anyone is interested, this is the decal package. Kinda pricy at $130.00 or so, but I couldn't find them before.

On a computer that died, I had a drawing of the hood stripes. I painted them in a Craftsman II we have here.

Nice masking! I just hope I can apply the large decals without buggering them up.

Odd...the dash decal does not match my dash configuration. Where's the amp gauge?
