    6788 lights

    I think these from Mike Links may work, I was going to try them but was able the salvage my old one on the 3788.

    CAD software?

    Yes these pictures are screen grabs of 3D models. In the production of the roller following the plans I was able to draw up and model, the roller turned out just great. The hardest part was making sure it would fold and the rams would extend properly, and being able to model and move the components in the computer world before cutting began was a huge timesaver. I know it's the wrong color, built it for my cousin, he runs that other color. At least I had the right tractor.

    CAD software?

    I use TurboCAD for drawings I want in 2D, such as yard layouts. I have designed some equipment in 3D and purchased a 3D modeling software by Alibre Design. At the time Alibre was offering a Personal Edition for $100/year.

    LED lights, Flood versus Trapezoidal

    I installed LED lights from Larsen Lights on my 766 and 1486. On the front of the 766 I installed spot lights in the nose, trap on the lower corner of the cab, and flood in the fenders, On the rear I installed 4 floods on the top of the cab. I moved the lights from the top of the cab on the Year-A-Round cab to the lower corner of the cab on the 766. I found that the lower mounting of the lights kept light from reflecting off the muffler and hood and also gave me better lighting overall.

    Better lighting

    I also purchased the kit from Larson Lights. As a comparison this is a picture with just the nose lights. Before: After LEDs: Again, this is only the 4x6 lights in the nose. I changed the rest after this and it makes working at night sometimes easier than during the day.
