Finally got anther few hours of work in today. A lot of sandblasting done. Planting time is here so maybe hard to get much time in the near future to do any work on this project. At least when I get a good warm dry day next I'll have another round of parts ready for paint. New rear Ag tires should be here this week to . Boy this is getting expensive.

Did do a small 2 acre sod plowing job this week using my 1937 Unstyled A JD. Another tractor of mine I did a complete restoration on. Never the less believe me it still hurts your A#$ after a few hours of real field work. Makes me appreciate a newer tractor! As can be seen my helpers were off goofing around while dad was working. They'll get there eventually. Anyway thought you would like to see some pics of something while waiting on more panzer progress.

Looks like you did a nice job on the JD and it looks like it does a nice job as well :thumbs: I like the boys fooling away from the "work zone" too, we just had a 4 yr old boy one town over loose most of a foot from falling near a tractor that was moving.

Well I had a nice set back this week in between planting and working on this project. My air compressor took a crap. Wonderful another $850 I wasn't counting on. Just a good reason to get something new.

For Woody: I am really glad your happy with what I'm doing with your old Panzer. This will end up probably being nothing short of being a brand new tractor when I'm done. Keep on the look out for a mower deck for me, that's next to complete this unit. Totally plan on mowing my yard with her after it's all done.

Must be the week to be back on the restoration trail.... I got in some painting today finally. I had to rework the dash after I had already painted it the 1st time as I never thought about throttle handles. After some fabing I fitted Ex-mark cables in. So it was painted again today. Bought new ag tires for the rear as well since last post. Think I'll put on new 3 rib tires on the front. Back to the shop for more paint prep.

Looks great!
And I second your thought about running the tri-ribs on a panzer. So far, I think mine look and run great. I just got a set of the smallest deestone's off of e-bay. Cheng Shen is the only other manufacturer I found who made them that small. They're called "tedder" tires being intended for a hay tedder.

More progress for your eyes. Have been putting things back together. Makes me feel better too. All new brake parts. Unfortunately I am going to have to repaint the hood as well. Just not up to my standards. But that only continues my fun of this project.

This is great! Perfect.
I apologize if I missed it, but could you tell me what part #/Brand of brake shoe you found that works? I'm thinking of a new set for next winter's work but thought a re-line may be my only option without "hunting" through tons of dodge books.

I sent my old shoes to Dandy's and he sent back new ones. Easy as that. Around $30 for the pair. He told me that there are about 5 or 6 diffrent pairs to chose from. Matt

Interesting. Was the different pairs for different models or different uses?

The rear ends are not all out of the same vehicles. These of course were bought used and reconditioned and narrowed. Closest I can find on mine it is either from a 57-59 Cornet or Windsor. The parts I matched for this axle from Napa had both cars consistently on the "fitting" list. So that means the brakes are different also.

Dandy's also had new brake springs. He told me on the phone that he had over 20,000 parts for Panzers. Probably your best option and the only one a lot of times. Not really bad priced neither.
