You're using "NEW" steel? Aw man, that takes most of the fun out of it. That looks better than factory Cav. That's going on your Kubota, right?

I try to keep the recycled stuff to a minimum. Most things here that have been outside are so corroded its more work than its worth.

Yes, they are going on the Kubota. I still need to finish up my forks for the move (the catalyst for this), 2 1/2 weeks to go

It looks good.

A only thought I had was the handles for the lock pins might need upgrading.

On my Bobcat, when I change my attachments, sometimes I have to slip a pipe over the end of the handle to get enough leverage to get the pins out. Dirt and Ice are the culprits.

On my fantasy list of projects is to put hydraulics on the handles so I don't have to get out of the cab, just like at work.

I had some handle attachments planned. Good place to put a bar for leverage

I rented a 444 JD loader that had the quik 'tatch pins driven by a little cylinder set up on an auxiliary hyd circuit... made attachment changers a push button deal... sweet!

Well well, now that you will have 39 acres, you willl have space to build an open air shed hidden in the trees with a good roof to store stuff outside. That plus a little paint or oil will keep the corrosion from being much of a problem.

The air is not too much a problem. Anything I get used typically has seen salt. Be it from a vehicle or something that was on the back of a vehicle. The power of that stuff is amazing. The trailer hitch on my truck is 1/4" stock, and perforated in many places.

When I was stationed in Great Lakes in the early 60s I noticed that the fenders on a car 3 years old looked like a goony bird trying to take off.
