I had John Hahn make these light covers for my 8C-20. They came out perfect.

I never saw anything like that! Light covers???? Were there such things in the old days? If so, why? Nice looking tractor, by the way. GWH

George,
I've never seen light covers for tractors before either. I got the idea when I trailered the tractor 400 miles to the Brooks, Oregon show. I used carboard, saran wrap and duck tape to protect the lens. The glass lens are not car or truck lens. They are the large flat guide tractor lens. They are very hard to find. Frank

Firecat,
Those light covers look really good. Just want to let you know about an experience that I had. Black light covers are so dark that if the lights are accidentally turned on, you cannot tell. The thin layer of foam on my light covers got hot enough to start somoking. There was enough heat there to crack the glass lens. Just be super careful. Have a good one!

Thanks Wyocat for the heads up. I'm only going to use the covers when I transport the tractor. The type generator does not use a battery. So, the only time the lights would work is when the tractor is running. Thanks, Frank
