Wow, looks like great headway. thanks for the pics, SOMEday I will own a FEL. Love the look.
I wasn't a big fan of the blue at first, but it's starting to grow on me... especially with the yellow loader...

A few more strategically placed colors & you'll have all the primaries. :laughingteeth:

Sometimes, slow and easy helps provide a better end result. Gives you time to visualize what you really want it to look like!

I'm on the hunt now for an orbital valve to set up power steering. Space constraints aren't going to allow the factory box to work any more

Wow, that's a big engine for the tractor. I like it.

Have you figured out a final color scheme for it yet? :)

factory massey colors I think.. I was also thinking industrial yellow like allot of the industrial masseys were pained in the seventies too but I'm real partial to the original colors

That is a big engine, is it from a Mil. Gen. set? The loader looks like an ARK loader? Keep us posted on your progress.. :thumbs:
