That is encouraging as mine is all apart and needs to be painted and put back together some day. Nice looking tractor and beautiful pictures.

That turned out great. I'll bet there's a lot of hours invested in that restoration. Those rear tires are a great choice. Very grippy on just about any surface.

Larry, I was wondering what part of TX. you are in? I'm located outside of San Antonio. It's nice to have yet another TEXAN join up here. Great looking 145, hope mine looks that good when I'm done.

Larry, very nice piece of equipment there. You really turned $60 into a million.

I had to laugh at your title... :thumbs:

I chose the title carefully as I had some previous "expensive" restores under my belt. This stuck very well, and has been accurate... and now s affectionaly known as BMP.
