Started on the weight for the 2038R last night and got a fair amount done today. Much of it is tacked together only so I can figure out how high to mount it on the brackets. Finished the front arms and links today though. The arms are about $250 and the threaded links $140.00 from Deere and let me tell you they are worth every penny. I guess I knew that going in but I wanted to give the arms a try. There is a lot of fabricating in them. Don't expect a quick finish because of that dang day job but I hope to have it done by fall, well late fall anyway.
So many pieces and dimensions. Don't really need a blueprint for it but it sure helps to know where your starting from when you need to change it. Great thing about computers. Take a photo, put it in a file and 20 years from now it should be there if the programs we use then will still open it.
