Wait for the pics later today, it'll blow you away. Got a few things done up to make it pop! I will have to put it most of the way back together so I can figure out where on the hydraulics and 3-point. I still have to get the engine cleaned and painted, but it's no biggy to set it in to align the pump. Quite the transformation, can't wait to see it together.

The wheels/tires look better than new Kenny. Before you know it you'll be test driving it.

I haven't started on the engine as yet, but I had to get things together to start figuring where the options are going!

Those tires look great Kenny, keep it up. The sidewalls look much better in my opinion. How much PSI you put in them??

I gained about 1 1/2" clearance at the rear between the tires. I have about 20 lbs in them, max is 22. Wanted them to seat well and stretch back out. Makes it easy to move around. I still can't get over the difference in the steering, though. That is so much easier.

Still lots to do, put all the wiring and gauges back in. But some may come back apart yet. Plus I have the hydraulics to get installed and the engine to clean up and paint, finish the 3-point.

That's looking really good Kenny. I like that colour scheme. Don't forget to
put the high shine on those rubbers.

Will, waiting for the paint to set a bit. Not sure what that would do to fresh paint. I was hoping for some sunshine when I took the pics, but it was trying to sprinkle when I rolled it out.
