Looks like you've done a hell of a lot of work there. I agree with Skub it would make a cracking projects thread.
There are a couple of them within 1/4 mile or so of me, even though its not exactly rural round here. I'm no expert on tractors but its nice to see them out.

I had a thread on it at 'the other place' - but had to delete it in the end owing to some weirdos out there. If people want to see the build (I have stalled a bit for a while) I will open a thread and post some pics of the build so far...
