this side seems to be the same to! we will have to change them.

She's more or less finished now all that needs fitting now are the door handles and some other fiddly bits!

to be onest, it pictures better than it is, but it is in good condition. I like where you have put the number plate, is that off a marshall tractor?

So richard which would you prefere the look off a white 1694 or red?? most people i know prefere the magpie colours to the case IH red but still i see dealers taking in magpie coloured DB's and spraying them in Case IH for a few extra pounds!

so what do you think??

I remember our white 1494 had the number plate on the roof like that and had a spotlight on each wing, im sure it came new like that.

I was thinking of spraying my 16 red when i saw the 1690 turbo jluttikoff restored, but now seeing 2 magpie 16's restored, i think i will keep it white. I think it makes the tractor stand out more.
