This guy had way too much time and money on his hands. I'll say he will end up taking a lot less, if he sells it. I can't imagine who would want it at 1/4 that price.

It is purdy. I kind of like it.
To have that much invested seems like he would have
had to buy everything new and/or hire everything out.
Still purdy. Purdy apt to be his next year too though. Sad

Purty is a understatement IMO. This thing looks real sweet.

I like it. His tractor, his choice. Were it me though, while using the maroon color, I would have painted the hood and fenders a Cadillac Perl white with a half a dozen coats of clear. My son who paints for a living painted our 600 hood and fenders with that color 10 years ago and we still get comments about how nice it looks.

I also actually like it. But I sure wouldn't do that myself. These are working machines, IMHO :-)

That Fire Mist Red looks like an Imron paint color. I painted a Honda Prelude that red. Man that was a pretty car.

Tractor is too rich for my blood.

Looks like it was headed toward being a "top notch" job until he used the wrong color..That color just don"t do anything for me--sure would be a nice one if it was done in the correct color...Hope he likes it "cause I believe he will remain the proud owner at that price..

FWIW N-Complete's base price for a tractor like that is 13K. For show quality paint add another $800, alternator $200, EI $130, and they don't have a price for the chrome bling. Wink Somebody must buy them.....
