Looks really good, this thing just keeps getting better. Really love the cutout on all the tractors I've seen it done, especially yours. I like how you have it in one unit with the muffler. Keep doing what you're doing man!

Years ago this is what the wheel horse was, it was powered by a predator 6.5 with a 5 inch on the motor and 25 inch all terrain atv tires on the rear, it was a hoot to drive and was short of being a monster and would take you anywhere you pointed it to go.
We started off with a rolling chassis two months ago and one week before the finish we have a mower that meets all the guidelines and hopefully can win your votes for first place
Wheel horse b-80 16hp Briggs and Stratton horizontal shaft vtwin 6inch pulley Lifted rear 4 inches to accommodate the larger front tires 3speed hi/lo with 2 inch wheel spacers to kick the rear tires out to match the front 24x9-10 superswamper vampires front and rear. Bumpers front and rear Aluminum belt gaurd Aluminum flywheel cover Led headlights and blue led accent lighting Stainless steel exhaust to the muffler(with a bypass pipe for quiet or loud mode)(selected on the dash) Aluminum fuel cell I build approximately a gallon and half of fuel Rubber diamond tread plate on the footrests Aluminum battery box And a kick ass "camo" style graphics

i still need one more piece of rubber tread plate to cover up my shifter plate and one small piece of door trim edge to go onto the right side foot rest. but other than that the wheel horse is officially done!
i upgraded to a 5/8 belt and with doing that i had to change my engine pulley, it is slightly smaller now. the one that was on it did not have a deep enough V notch to work with a 5/8 belt.
i insalled some exhaust wrap where it was needed and also a stainless exhaust tip.
last but not least i covered part of my dash with rubber tread plate and will be doing my shifter tomorrow.
