That is very cool! May take a bit to let the yellow sink in, but it looks gorgeous! Heck of a deal there!

That is a beautiful and unique restoration. It should get lots of positive comments at the shows.

Thanks for detailing the redo, I've gone thru the pics twice, and will be showing Ryan in a few minutes.

This makes me wonder which one of us MF owners will take the yellow plunge next!

I keep coming back to look at your pictures! I just love that yellow! That is the same color I am going to paint my old FJ40 landcruisers.

Again, Great job! :thumbs:

I like your yellow MF! It will be one that is remembered quicker than with standard red. Looks real good.

Thanks everyone, I can't claim the color idea's. I just liked the looks of the big brother massey's 130 and 160's with the industrial yellow. I still would like to make up some grill lights. I think the dark massey gray would look great. I was a little dissapointed with the yellow when I was painting as it seemed to have almost an orange tint to it, but when it dried it didn't.

Well it's pretty much done. Still need to get the tail light, dust caps, some flange bolts for one of the footrests, and down the road another jack shaft as this one had been broke and brazed back, repalce some tranny gears and add an electric lift for the back so i can run the manual for mid and front use. The Massey yellow in the pic's looks lighter than it realy is. So it has a 16hp Tec, Cub Cadet narrow front wheels, a light switch and one axle housing sleeve from a JD and a steering wheel from a MF1450, and an after market seat. Here is one before pic also.

Great job onthe tractor, love the yellow. Massey needed you in thier design department years ago. You did a super job!!

That looks awesome, and nice job too. It certainly will stand out in a crowd. I've got a feeling we're
going to see a few more done in that colour combo, in the future.

I have always liked the looks of the older Massey's (the Red & Gray), but this is pretty cool. Kinda like that yellow! What is the name of the yellow and brand of paint?
