2031...Painted the chassis soft Black and have brake working good. Tin and body parts are now bright red. Not sure I like that color yet, but it's gonna stay. Have wheels painted IH off-white and looks better than yellow ones. I took it out for a spin. That shure is a smooth running tractor. The clutch is a little grabby, but useing care makes it work OK. Looking for decals now, needs something to break up the colors. Might get some pix later, still fixing little details.

We love in-process pix too.

Glad to hear you're working out the bugs.

Here's some pix of my 2031. Talking to fella that had part in making them, says it is a 98 model year! OOOOKKK! Think they used some antique ideas for them. Anyway, here it is. Got lights all working, painted and needs decals now. Sure runs quiet and smooth! I have a deck for it, but might leave off. I DO have a snow blade that I'm gonna build up and paint soon. I like snow-blades! Seems to be almost TOO red and needs those decals. Orig had some double pinstripes, might have to do those over if I can get them on straight, ha!

I like it. Red Tractors are always fun. But decals, I agree give it some real character. They helped my 100 look really finished. Looking forward to my Speedex project next summer.

Very nice looking tractor and I can honestly say I have never seen anything like that before. Except for the engine it resembles an older grey market tractor. Pretty neat.
