Weren't all 786s cabless?

Apparently it was an option . Don’t think many were made.

Do you have any pictures of the inside of the cab.  That's going to make a nice tractor.

Cab was probably added. Door decals dont match 786 tri stripe decals.

I agree with Long Farms on this one - the cab door decal does not match the hood; the paint on the cab looks brighter than the hood paint also...

are those 34 inch rear tires?

Good that you could find a nice one. Last 786 I looked at was whipped and way overpriced.

it's stunning how much difference decals make to the appearance. "Plain Jane" now, but with your new decals she'll look brand new! Nice work

you've done so far!

It’s best viewed from 20 foot but it will be fine for a working tractor

Let it cure then buff it out. You'll be surprised. Shoot some clear then decals.

I think it depends on the type of paint.

I got the chassis set of decals to I think they really help. I’ve got a 20 inch light bar ordered  can’t decide whether to put it on cab or in front some where . I’m fairly night blind and need a lot of light.I found second picture in an old post I like the way the lights are set up on it
