  • John Deere Gator Project

    Made some sheet metal front fenders for my old John Deere gator. Originally it had plastic ones that were broke when I bought it and have since fell completely off , So after owning the thing for 8 yrs I decided to make new ones. I used 16 ga sheet metal. It took 4 pcs per fender. I used 1/4" rod around the gear shifter so it wouldn't rub just on the sheet metal. I should have took pics when i was making them but didn't think of it untill I was finished. Now longer mud covered feet from the rear wheels.

    good job on those finders, looks like those finders will give you years of use
    isn't it fun when you build things for yourself .

    good job

      Yes it is. I have done quit a bit of welding over the years, but never really messed with sheet metal much. So of course I bent a couple of pieces in the wrong direction But I still like messing with the brake.

          Its a very handy machine. I got a great deal on it. I bought it from a golf course. It had quite running on them so they overhauled the engine [kawasaki]. After they put it together and used it once it quite again, so they took it apart again. When I stopped by to pick up another piece of equipment it was sitting in the corner with the engine in a box. In pieces. I asked if they wanted to sell and they were disgusted with the thing. I gave them $100.oo for it. Took it home and had to put the engine back together to see what was wrong with it. It had a bad Ignition module was all [$135.00]
          So I have a grand total of $235.00 in my John Deere Gator. It has a hydraulic dump and all. So check out your local golf courses for their junk. Sometimes they have stuff they no longer want to fool with
