    Why did you cut the exapanded into individual pieces? Would be far faster, and sturdier, IMHO, to leave it one piece and weld where it crosses tines or edges. I'm sure your way is just fine, just seems like more work for no reason to me - was there a reason?

    I talked to Travis on the 19th. He said it looked good. I have talked to him a few times through out the build, there are no hard feelings.

    The expanded metal would have interfered with the SSQA if I did not put it in between. I think it gives it a clean look with it in between.

    It is primed (it looks a little funny in the pictures, I guess it was the lighting)

    I see one MAJOR PROBLEM! That NEW Grapple Paint makes the tractor look a bit dingy so I think you need a few more quarts of that Kub Orange Ya still got a few weeks prior to official Spring Melt means you will be using her more in the mud.. Better get busy!

    I may remember why I went to the other end of the shop, I'm just afraid once I get there I'll forget how to get back!

    The tractor needs a good cleaning. I'll try to wash it for the final pics.
