That's the view of the dash and bonnet....not happy with it. I made the dash to the same shape as the original yrs back. I didn't have the original bonnet plus didn't/don't have the skill or equipment to fold the bonnet to the original shape so the bonnet stays and the dash will get pimped to fit snug under the bonnet in the future. But for now I've spuds to get planting so it will do until next winter.

It is going to look great when you are finished and will definitely be a work of art 👍😊

It won't be a "concours" restoration, but it will have character and I like the odd & unusual.
Keep the updates coming, enjoying the thread.

Second coat on...it's brush finish but given these are going to be up to the axle in mud in a few weeks it will be fine . Agri tyres in the post.

I finally got around to reading this thread.

First off, I would like to say; You sir are doing a fabulous job!

Your fabrication skills are "top shelf". (y)

Secondly I would like to commend you for "sticking to it" .

My God sir, a 12 year old thread, about the same project.....Simply incredible!!!

I can hardly wait to see the finished product......If I live long enough that it is! 😂😂

Yeah it's been a real slow burner. Kubotas aren't just for Christmas they are for life 🤣 Seriously though ,kids are getting older now so a bit more free time in the garage finally coming my way.

Had to turn the wheels inside out ...but delighted with them . I placed them in the closest position with 2 wider positions available
