Ok, as promised im going to post some pics of the tractor. I have finally accumulated enough parts to finish this project. here we go enjoy!!
Im starting of with a set of tires I found, these are a set of Firestone tires pretty close to original.
Here is a shot of the transmission lever, completely rebuilt. all bolts were replace with zinc dichromate CAT bolts. The foot pedal was textured for an added look.
Here is the 3/4 inch ID collars that will secure the transmission lever in place, im waiting for 2 more to come in so I can use all 8 as it was originally. This is also going to hold the foot rest bar in place. I bought a new foot rest bar from my local Lowes. Its a 3/4 inch thick bar that will be cut down to size as the next step in the build.
The Panzer has sat in the back of my garage for a year till today, Oh, the dust!!
This is one of my favorite shots!
Alright guys and gals, feel free to ask questions and or make suggestions. My goal for this tractor is to be a parade tractor, where I live we have a large parade for the 4th of July, she will no longer have to work but more for show. I have another year before the next parade, I think this is enough time.
