Well here is the damage & I'll have to tell ya the pics don't show how good I really did! I barely hit the darn thing to, also the hood & bucket were not on it so no I didn't rip it off to!
Here is Marshal on the brand new JD#2 lol this is a ls model it has arm rests, it didn't come with a roll bar so papa took it off the old one & added it to it, the hood can also be change out with the old one to put a bucket on it he never used the bucket anyway. But now we have 2 batteries so less worry of a battery going dead. He's a happy kid now & thats all that matters to me & he never shed a tear over the whole thing :)
