Wow! Big congratulations Jeff! gArfie's tractor cab looks the bizz! It's sure been a labour of love and now the best bit's arrived. So tell us more. Where have you been (or are planning to go) for her maiden voyage? How does she behave? Speed? Well done!

Got to get it commissioned now. We did drive it about a bit but not supposed to. The suspension seats are really cool. The one standing passenger was feeling it a bit but the rest of us didn't know it was bumpy!

gArfie's cab has turned out to be worth stealin', I hope he doesn't pinch it back.

True but tractor cabs have their uses, but at least he will be able to cruise to places in rough weather and be one of the few ribbers to arrive not wearing a bright yellow romper suit!
Well done mate, its looking good, must be good to have something to show for all your hard work.
