He looks to be happy as can be there in Massey Hall Will! If he could smile, he'd be smiling right now....but not any bigger a smile than the smile you are wearing I'd bet!

I finally got a chance to catch up on the journey of the Elf and this thread. I clicked on the view first unread and I was only on page 8. So I spent the last 1/2 hour catching up and reading the rest of the thread. You should be very proud Will as that is one heck of a thing to pull together to get the Elf to it's new home. You guys are a riot and I loved every minute of reading this thread.

Congrats Will.

Awesome way to end the thread. I have never enjoyed the arrival of a tractor so much. It was almost like waiting on a newborn. I can't wait to see the restoration.

Hi IamSherwood, I am not exactly in North America but I Have just bought an Elf from Germany and shipped it back to the UK. Have you started restoring yet? Maybe we could share some info. Mine has been disguised as a standard Gutbrod

Maybe between the two of you, you can figure out what all the levers do.

Hi Gav. Welcome to GTT.
First off, you've landed at the best GT site on the internet. Lots of great people here. Helpful, smart, and polite.
Stick around, you'll enjoy it here. Also, don't be afraid to post lots of pictures. we like that.

Congrats on your Elf. Nice to see another one. I haven't started the resto yet, but plan to in Nov. I'll gladly work
together with you, and share info. In fact, I'm hoping you can steer me in the right direction, on a couple issues
when the time comes.

Are you planning a total resto, back to original Elf outfit?

How did you get yours onto the Island?

Glad you found us. Stay in touch.

Will
