here is a pic of my mirror instalation. 2in x 1/4 in aluminum flat bar
bolted to a muffler clamp. this should be easyier on the neck and safer
to. i hate backing up useing thr brail tecnique. it vibrate a little but u can tell
a cow from a gal in a mini skirt. u get the picture. i made some new seat
brackets from 3x3 in angle iron. this moved my seat back 1.5 in. now the seat
won,t tip all the way forward. i have to make newerones a bit taller or get longer bolts and spacers.

A mirror sure helps. Kind of an odd place to put it, but you didn't have a whole bunch of choices. Looks like it will work good. At least untill you build a cab.:D Dusty

Nice work! Wow thats some serious steel in your drive shed. What's the load rating:eek:!
the canary was singing to me again cheap-cheap- cheap. my son use
to work for highways ans was told to haul a truckload of highway
guard rails to the dump. sooooo it got hauled to the old mans
dump. i did,nt what i was going to do with them but i had a reveation
in my sleep. i cut the bottom out of a bunch of oil pails stacked them
3 high and that was my concrete forms. the aluminum is used as well.
back to the mirror, i had to put it on the left sife as the hyd valve was
blocking my vision. now u know the rest of the story.

Eh great idea on the shed. I now see the top of a bail that you used as a form. I have a couple 16 ft pieces of pallet racking that I got for free. I envision a couple of bridges on some swampy areas on my property. Cheap cheap cheap. I like it.:D

Ha ha, yup the men are brave and the live stocks afraid. After a bottle of scotch nothing in the back 40 is safe :eek:



Factory mirror mounts on the RH side of the hood, it's pre drilled ready to install!
Nice looking tractor Vic. Super shiny and all the decals are in place. Very impressive :D

Bloody hell that's a slick machine Vic.
I'm hoping to get my machine spruced up over the winter.
Shouldn't the mirror be above the hood?
I only mention it bc that's the way mine is mounted, can see more.
In the down position you get a nice view of the rear fender.
