Nice looking tractor......great job. I never thought about using the weights as a step..
Father in law got tired of his muffler on his case 1370 rusting out every few years, so he made one out of stainless. The muffler is with my son in law now, but I'm betting the muffler outlives the tractor. Just wondered if you could make one to fill the whole in your hood??
Again....Great looking tractor!
