    Great project. I have often thought of starting something like this on my Kubota. My son has a JD 317 with Hydraulics he has let sit as well.
    So watching your progress with great interest..

    Some issues aside the base frame and parts for that tractor appear to be in really amazingly great shape.

    FYI, A lot of common printers nowadays can do double sided printing. No need to go to kinkos if you know a guy.

    Wow that looks like a lot of work, but you will have one cool tractor when done!

    Is that your workshop the tractor is parked in?

    Looking forward to the build!

    Cheers!

    Very impressive. Whenever I need a dose of motivation, I look at the projects that you have going on.
