When I took the videos the other night I forgot to take one of the 3 point working. It is not perfect yet but it will pick up a John Deere. LOL

I worked on the seat pans today. Went to a friend of mine that has a machine shop and used his bandsaw to cut out the seat and back plate, went to another friend and used his break and bent them to fit the seat pan. Came back and drilled the bolt holes and welded nuts to the inside. Sandblasted and painted them. I called a couple places to see what it would cost to upholster it. Holy cow! $200 to $300, I think I will keep looking, somebody will do it cheaper than that.

You're right there. Local place will do them for around $60. He needs an old one for template or a whole bunch of measurements.

Really nice looking pan, now to find an upholsterer who doesn't live in the land of unicorns and pixies.

Well, I made my main goal today. To have my dad see this while he still can. He thought it was pretty nice and liked the shinny hood. He didn't stay out long as it was cold but at least he got to see it. I wish I had had his Massey hat on him.

Glad Dad got to see it. That's great news, did he get a kick out of the 3 point system?

Looks nice in the outdoors, very nice piece.
