Im putting that stock 5 3/4 hp. Im trying to kepp her as close to original as I can with a little bit of my own touch. Most of what im changing are updates that modernize the tractor, front wheels with roller bearings, and things like that.

There was a question on how high the tractor was,it was 42 inches off the ground, I managed to get the tractor on the ground. Rolled it out side for my first look at the paint in the sun and im VERY happy with the way its coming out so far.

Very slow progress, the weather has been crap around here. Its been too cold to paint. A lot of prep and accenting hoping to make some progress by the end of the week.

Hey guys, I took a pretty long break from the Panzer, landscape season has begun where I am so I took I week off of the tractor and built a Scag walk behind for my business. Its tough working 40+ fulltime and running the business on the side.


Anyways im back at it. I did a little work on the tractor tonight and I sprayed a bunch more peices in the last few days, I will get some pics up in the next few days.

I was getting worried! I thought you were going to be one of the people who just stop posting and forget about the site, I hate when that happens. Im glad your back and looking forward to seeing some pics after so long!

As promised I have a picture update I wanted to share with you the machine that I just built. It only took me a week to build it needed a new engine and the paint as you can see what very rough. Anyone that knows me knows that im a sucker for a nice paint job. Cost to build my 36 inch Scag mower including paiting was $290.

Now that's good stuff.
I see you have those car tires on those nice white rims. You going to swap those out for the lug tire?

If I remember correctly, the Abs are pretty wide, I don't think they will fit onto those wheels.

Cookiemonster and Ryan, I will be changing that wheels over im waiting to find a set of 23x10.50x12 rims. The tires will hang out of the fenders but will look super cool as well. Thanks for the comments guys.

My keyboard is covered in drool. I am very jealous of your projects progress! Awesome job and I really like the black added. I use the heck out of mine and that paint wouldn't last long. I use mine as a workhorse! I have a few I guess I could paint and leave looking nice, but I don't go to shows. Keep updating us. We are as anxious for you to finish it as you are!
