Yep! , Good to see you on here. Great progress on the project. Like the paintwork.

 

Light Lense is a challenge. Only option is to do a search for part# 98-1713 or Wheel Horse Light Lense.

Auction site has them listed, but only in the U.S. It is not cheap to import one new or used. .......don't I know !.

You need the correct screws if you don't have them.

Seats!,  again it's a matter of searching and waiting.

Check the Bolt pattern spacing on the rear Fender and make sure any potential seat purchase offers the same pattern. Avoid drilling more holes.

Let us know how you get on.

Looks like a lot of hard work done.

Can't wait to see the finished project, good luck with finding a seat and the light lenses

That looks really good Gazza and :text-welcomeconfetti: to RS. Been quite a few new UK members recently which is great!

Must get round to doing my B-111 up - its been waiting for a couple of years now. The modern Toro lens is a cheaper to produce item than the factory original but a couple of my tractors have them and they look fine.

 

I buy some bits from the US and some from a local Toro agent. I've found it's easy to get a price from an agent by phoning them with the part number you want which allows you to compare prices with buying direct from the US. If the agent isn't exactly local to you they can get Hayter (who hold Toro spares in the UK) to post them directly to you rather than to them. It works well and can be quite quick if the spares are in stock in the UK - takes longer if they are waiting for them to come over from the US but not too long I've found.  

 

Hope this is of some use and looking forward to more pics.

 

Andy

It take around ten days to get a delivery from US , but you could Pay extra costs for import duties & vat  so be careful if you are thinking of buying from US

Hi Gazza,

 

Welcome to the forum! The B-111 is looking really good, make sure you post some pictures up once you have stickered it up, I bet the decals will really finish it off.
