Got a few hours of shop time today and refinished a pair of wheel weights that dad picked up last weekend.

Got them blasted, hung them and powdered them up. 4c9396ec36cf7b17ae224e2466e8c8d3.jpgeba6a2e035d2cfdfa132015c60c10592.jpg

Threw them in the easy bake oven and they came out looking pretty damn good!

Stole Mom's bathroom scale and weighed them before installing them. They weigh 65lbs per side! 4d318f55a70e2a82f602cb2b9aa946e7.jpg

Got some carriage bolts and slapped them on the bota. Came out really nice! Hopefully they will help keep the bx25 planted! 0db263ecd3fb0cfab0e70d96eb39969b.jpg

This tractor belongs to my father. He doesn't seem to mind it at all. The cab is heated too so that helps keep the comfort level up ;)

There will be a plow blade going on the front of the tractor as well so it he won't have to be turned around all the time.

The blade is visible in one picture. Nice tractor either way!

POPs will have to turn his head around just to BACKUP, only going foward, every time!

The bota worked awesome this winter! The snow didn't stand a chance!! Really great having the blade and blower combo!

This cab is a Laurin cab made in Quebec I believe. ( don't quote me on that!) I'd do a quick search on google with Laurin cabs in the search tab and voila! Their page will come up!

How would a rear view camera work to cut down on some of the turning backwards?
