Got the front wheels done except for a few cosmetic things to do need to put the skid rings on, going to try and document this build a little closer as this build is going to be for a couple of kids I know and boy are they going to be surprised.Hope I can keep it a secret till it's time to give it to them going to try and have it done by Christmas so they can have a very Merry Christmas.

Got the hubs for the back wheels started still have to weld them up and modify them a little bit hope to do that tomorrow still need to cut all the spokes but that shouldn't take to long going to slim down the stiffeners that I put in so they don't look so bulky, anyway just a little update.

Nice work on another good looking tractor.
All of our stuff is just functional, yours is also attractive

Dustin doesn't matter weather it looks good or it's functional as long as you have fun doing it , it's always a challenge to come up with new ideas keep up the good work.
