Here it is after checking for clearance in all of the tight spots..........everything clears, even the rear fenders with the big 26's.  I raised them up 1/2" to clear the tires and they fit just fine.  I'm just going to be painting the last few pieces of sheet metal and then the frame will get a fresh coat of orange and the engine will get a fresh coat of black paint when it warms up outside.  I'll do the new wiring harness and then install my LED headlights and then this little project will be close to done.

Thank you!  I was going for that kind of aggressive, big tractor look.

As for my latest update, I've got a pretty good solution for us with Case/Ingersoll tractors that have issues with the headlights. This modification still looks somewhat stock, it's VERY cheap and easy to do and it blows the stock headlights out of the water. For $19 and some change (and free shipping) you can get LED flush mount lights on ebay. They mount right where the factory lights do, they just need the corner of the headlight mounting bracket trimmed just a hair to fit, they put A LOT of light, they don't get hot and melt and the pair is only a little bit more than the cost of ONE replacement Speaker 780 plastic lens. I'll get some pictures of them mounted tomorrow, but in the meantime, here's a link for anyone interested.
