Ok, finished blasting, and sanded all the blasted areas and painted them with the first coat, no pics as I had to clean up , the bugs started coming out. Next will be to wetsand and repaint in the garage to keep the bugs off! Dang little boogers...

I bet you are glad that part is done! It's going to look real nice when you get it back together.

Yes Kenny, that I will, I'm hoping I can get it finished and start putting things back on this weekend, I need my dang shed back, and that tractor has WORK TO DO! Remember that field I plowed for plowday? Well its got corn planted and needs the rows tilled, that's what that new tiller will be doing, on the 125 for the first go around, then it will be done with the newer 125 , after I install the pto stuff on it..... Then that's it! I'm done playing with these for a while, this is starting to be like work....
I need a different job, the one I have is killing my creative abilities ! And the pay and hours really stink!

I'm sure it will be a great addition to the herd when it's put back into service. I need to finish some of my projects.

A few more shots, today I laid up a bit more glass, it seems better now, and i was able to even rebuildable the lower corners that busted out (bonding is not structural lol) tomorrow the paint will be dry enough to wet sand, and spot glaze to make the hood and fender dang mear perfect before the last few coats go on.

That's looking better all the time, Keith! May want to fab a bumper to put in front to keep from breaking it again?

I never hit anything, it breaks from the vibrations.
I'm going to put some bracing behind it so the weight of the hood is not being transfered to the grill, that should stop most of it, and a bumper would be nice as well. ;)

That looks great! On the back of the hood on the '75 there is a crack about an inch long. It is on those wing looking things pointing to the back. That one is from vibrations. :mad2:

Thanks guys, front wheels need to be blasted and painted , the rears just need to be washed as they are like new. Maybe today? Depends if I get the tiller apart or not, I am going to clean it up and replace the lower bearings and seals, but that's after i hammer out the cover on the cut-ditioner that someone hit a telephone pole with.......

AH ha! You didn't say it wasn't a GT implement, Now I know what you were talking about.
Glad you got the tiller apart. Looks like a fun time was had. :bigrofl: I'll keep an eye on this in case I have to take mine apart!
