    Pretty proud of this.

    We have a tractor in for restoration and the original nose looks like it got ran over by a truck so we opted to buy an aftermarket nose but the aftermarket nose had an 8" hole in it for an air cleaner that this tractor doesn't have so I was tasked with making the hole disappear. I started by cutting out the section from the original nose and straightening it the best I could before welding it into the new nose, once it was welded in the nose was sandblasted to remove whatever cheap coating the manufacturer used. After 3hrs of bodywork I figured I'd hit it with some primer to see how it looks and I really couldn't be happier.

    Looks great Tim. Takes a lot of time to do that but worth the end result.

      Looks good Tim.
      But, that's why you make the big money. To make "holes" disappear.
      They can't all be turn key.
      Make the best of each and every day.

        Nice work Tim, sometimes you just have to make what you need to complete a job.

          It doesn't look like you did anything to it ( as in, it looks perfect, VERY nice job )

            Looks great Tim! I'd be proud of it too!

            I had to weld the exhaust hole shut on the hood of that 4586. I know how difficult that stuff is. You did it perfectly! I give you a big IH thumbs up! (Even though it was a Ford....)

            Just because it's old, doesn't mean it's obsolete!
