Well , I must say this has been an on going nightmare since I decided to do it...... 3 years ago!....
It has been dismantled at least 4 times, only to be re assembled so I could use it. Well this time I got the jump on it! Got the frame painted, new re vamped 3point hitch rocker assembley installed with pto option.
Now for all that tin.... Oh how I hate sandblasting! What a mess it makes, not to mention IT HURTS! , but it needed to be done.
I'll take a few shots this weekend, so you can see what I've been doing lately . Also have been detailing up the new 3 point stuff , I only need to find a tiller and I will have everything nailed

Nice start to the process! I always liked that color Blue, just haven't found many around here.

Good luck on the tin, hard to cover up enough to sandblast when it's this hot. Be careful.

Those pipe frame Fords are a unique setup and look completely different than most tractors with the tin off. I know where there is a GT14D that would be nice to have but it's part of an estate and the people in control think the tractor is worth huge money and won't even sell it to family members at a reasonable price.

Might need to extend the frame a bit to get them in there, Daniel! Sounds like fun to me!

Could ya hold off on more pics for a little while, Keith? There is a 145 for sale close to me cheap, and I'm really trying my best to hold off.

Nah, go ahead. I'm loaded with willpower.......
