well now the jd's done bar a few tiny bits, i got to spend an hr in the shed yesterday, and another 20 mins today when i got home, and so far have got this far,have never been really happy with the first 550, so may remove the loader and set that up as a 565?? not sure yet

cab and arches off a 595, both repos, and a spare origonal bonnet i had that was broken at the dash board end thankfully,grills a broken roll bar mf 595 one i had, glued it back up and cant see it

chassis is from a uh 135, have had to alter the steering so its not got the rods from the drivers area, easy enough to do to,all removed parts reused on that, door opens as does rear screen, will prob be a red cabbed french build this time,so may yet make the other door open / shut to

not glued in place yet so may look a little wonky parts wise at present ;)

You just don't stop do you Sean :o

Only just found this one....

The 500 series were probably my least favourite popular tractor, preferred the 200's for what it's worth... but you are making a spanking job of them mate. I would really struggle to not love them if I had your conversions in my collection :-[::):D

I hope you're going to round the flanks of the bonnet round under the front of the chassis though, don't want any half measures here young man ;);D
