NICE! I have stated on other posts that I have ran the BOBCATS and other skidsteer loaders for many decades!

Great work!

It will need paint though Black and white or just the black as a wood burned will also look great!!

Nice work!!!
I wish I would have waited a day and could have used your project for ideas and saved me some mistakes. LOL
You said something about it being bigger, what size are the tires going to be?
Love your seat and I forgot to drill the holes in the roof. LOL
When you finish it the wood is really going to POP!!!
Yours is turning out so nice kinda wish I would have bought the plans and did it right, yours has much leaner looks and that’s a good thing.
One thing I notice the plans don’t add is the safety bar that would flip down like a safety belt, if it went up while driving the motor would stop.
ralbuck would know about them.

You Americans seem to have a phobia about patterned seat covers.., Shame we haven’t got a Lowes or such here in Australia.

Nice job so far.
