alright here we go, should have started a thread on this when i got the machine but was too excited and got going on it before i even took pics. well here is a timeline of whats it looked like and whats been done since ive owned it. Keep checking back because there are updates almost daily on things i do to it.

Here is a picture of the 3rd day i owned it, after i painted it Kubota orange and IH white.



alright, the next photo is when i bought my snowplow and modified it to fit the sunstar mount


Then the next thing i did was make a new rear hitch that i could hang weight off from, like this cast iron inner wheel weight that you see. and i added a 2000 pound winch just for the **** of it :trink40:

Next i made a bucket attachment to hinge off the snowplow to make a clamshell style dumping scoop, used the winch from the rear to pull up the bucket section for dumping.


And here she is all perty with the new tail lights i added into the headlight switch


Then my favorite part of all THE NEW SEAT!!! and a safety triangle and added a flasher into the rear light circuit



Then came the old Jacobsen Chief 800 grill and front axle rear weight setup, with some barbell weights on it, mmmm lookin good!!:thThumbsU:thThumbsU:thThumbsU


Now its time for the NEW REAR TIRES.... Carlisle 25/11/12 A.C.T Radials. oooo nice:trink39:


Next i made a brush guard out of old sign posts. helps protect the grill from damage when using the bucket :thThumbsU


This next pic is of when i cut my hood open today to add a new vent over the engine to keep er cool. the screen is actually the grill from the jacobsen chief that i used to have


And right this moment this is what it looks like all clean and perty




soo there we go, a brief history on my sunstar 18, any questions about any mods feel free to ask, and keep checkin back cause i mod stuff every day!!

Nice Job! From the rear it looks like a different tractor. My bad back really likes your new seat. With about 6lbs of air pressure in the rear tires she'll ride like a Cadillac.
