The Yellow lives up to it's name. Very bright and new looking. Your pics make me want to get back at my MF8 restoration. Thanks for sharing.

About ready for paint! Need a final sanding in the morning, then some JD Construction Yellow, PT12, from the local Carquest store.

Hood & gas tank haven't arrived yet, not ready for them anyway! After I get it going, I'll still have some extras to figure out! ~~ Lowell

That's coming along nicely Lowell. You are making pretty rapid progress. For those of us with no heated place to work in the winter it's nice to see your project taking shape.

Awesome! Nothing like fresh paint to put a cap on a restoration. That stand keeps getting my attention. My back feels better just looking at the way it raises that chassis up to a nice working height.

That's going to be a nice addition to your collection. Do you have a specific task in mind for this machine?

Got the 70I project pressure washed & in the shop yesterday. Up on the rack today, wheels & tires off, rims are in good shape.



Grille plate came today too;



The 70I project has started! ~~ grnspot

Besides your awesome frame stand and your excellent progress, I like the Adirondac chair (you must have made?) in the back ground.
