It sure does look good. That seat has to be a real killer though.  :smilewink:

Up & running for a trip around the yard before noon today:  Tractors 2016 148.JPG  Tractors 2016 151.JPG

 

Put the 3-pt on this afternoon & drove around some more.  Probably start on the hood tomorrow!

I took the wrinkled hood to a body shop to have him hammer it out (i'd finish it).  He did a pretty good job on it for the way the metal was stretched!  This morning, I took the outside down to bare metal as I've always had trouble trying to "blend in" the new with the old:  Tractors 2016 152.JPG  Tractors 2016 153.JPG

 

Body puttied the inside & outside as needed:  Tractors 2016 154.JPG

 

Hope to sand & prime, then finish coat the inside today & finish the outside tomorrow.

So you'll be ready to start on mine by Wednesday?

 

It only pays expenses but it'll be just as fun as that one was.  :smilewink:

Paint's on!  Tractors 2016 156.JPG

 

I'll give it a couple days for the paint to harden a bit before putting the latches back on & installing it!
