Actually, Arctic cat colors are black , green and purple- ive owned a few arctic cat snowmobiles.
Id definitly restore it now- thats a rare tractor. I never even knew they made lawntractors, i think i mentioned i did have a minibike - i was too young to know just how rare they were.....
MSTEELE: Leave it to idiots to invent a new fad....the funny bit of that video was at the end where the bubba gump dude was driving on the wrong side of the road AND blowing off that stop sign AND almost causing an accident.

damn, U can paint mine once your done! Looks awesome! Keep it up!
Are you using a clear coat?
Thanks FearlessFront, I'm using a clear coat on everything. Want a nice smooth finish on the whole tractor when I'm done. So over this long week-end, I went over to Arild's place. We replaced the carb and she fired right up. Even got her driving with basically just a chassis
I also got the racing stripes painted on the hood. A strange thing happened though when I put some clear coat on the stripes. On the bottom of the middle stripe, a weird pattern emerged from the surface. It reminded me of a magnetized iron, when the iron 'stands up'.
There was also an extreme amount of corrosion on the bottom of one of the sides of the bed. Got rid of that now though

Sorry for a very long wait for an update. I haven't really had much done cause I'm presently at the mercy of some people in Vancouver to finish making my steering gear and the clutch pedal still isn't completely done. For those who might not have seen my most recent video, here it is with another one and some pics.
The Arctic Cat is still going to be a mild mod though. The steering gear should be done sometime next week. I'm still planning on changing the exhaust, doing a pulley swap, getting a battery,(probably a motorcycle one), getting all the electrical sorted out,[key start, lights, some sort of gauge, cigarette lighter (just for restoring it to stock, somewhat ], and of course getting some nice nobbers! Any ideas on how i could fit some bigger tires for the back would be great! Thanks.

Red engine shroud looks awesome, makes it look like a newer motor. Very nice work on the paint too! Just need the rims painted now.
To get knobbly back tyres on, you MAY need to space out the rims a bit, looks pretty close to the bed walls. But its just a case of finding the correct size tyres and mounting it on the rims. Where did you get the stickerrs on the tail gate by the way?

Comming along nicely- the new stickers make it look original - while youre restoring it , you might want to change the trans oil- looks like my 82 dynamarks trans- when i changed that it looked pretty yukky .
A set of AG tires would set it off- i dont think theyre much larger then stockers- for bigger wheels, youd need adapters to widen the stance.
