Default International LB you probably haven't seen before

I decided to get a brass hopper cover lid cast up to set off my LB. Let me know what you guys think. I will also put it on one of my earlier grey LAs to see how it looks and get some pics. Happy Easter everyone!

It's like nothing I have ever seen. Nice job. I wonder what other parts could be cast in brass, like a mixer, or maybe some sheet brass and make a valve cover.

Thumbs up Re: International LB you probably haven't seen before

That brass cover looks very good!! It would look even better on top of my brass handle LB 3 to 5, or my brass handle 1.5 to 2.5. Nice job!!!!

Looks good on an LA as well. Love how the decal trim matches the brass, didn't expect that.
