What I have read from your message above is, that the ZG222Z need some nice light's for the nightshifts...

We will see next: Frontlight, Sidelight, Foglight, Backlight and not to forget the blue light !under! the mowerdeck, so it looks like an UFO trying to land

Have fun!!

Recessed Baby Moons are still doable on tabs the same way. I think chrome trim rings on the weights would look W-A-Y cool.

Gotta admit Paul gets lots of points for style! Now Iffin you were to add a couple big belly mowers under that beast you wouldn't have to spend much time mowing in the dark! HAha

Love ya work paul!

Good idea on the baby moons. That opening is just about 10" You have to remember that I live on a big rock right out in the middle of the North Atlantic so I'm lucky to see the real moon let alone baby ones I see you got a custom way of thinking and I like that.

Looks great, Paul. I've studied your pictures and have a question. How did you drill the holes into the wheel weights? The hole looks too small for a regular drill to fit. Did you use one of those right angel drills? Thanks!

Wouldn't you know it. The one photo I forget to include and you guys ask me about it .
I used a pneumatic 3/8th angle drill to drill the holes in the weights then the threaded or we call it " tapped " the holes and that was it
.

Hey Paul, I saw a road tractor today here in western Kentucky that had Moon caps on the rear diffs. what made me think of you was it had had spinners installed on the moons that reminded of ones from a '63-'64 SS chevy. Isn't that funny how something can trigger a thought thats totally remote from the first one?

All joking aside though, Very nice job, The chrome acorn nut covers really add a special touch.
I so agree with cmorningstar here! I saw the post and had that image in my head right out of the gate.
They do look great though man!
