THANK YOU all for the nice comments that were made during this project.
I have enjoyed sharing it with you.
........................................................................................................

The crawler is all put back together so I pulled her out and took a bunch of photos.
The decals are not on yet and I don't plan on doing that until the spring.
That way the paint is fully cured and the weather is warmer for the decals to set.

Ray, thanks for bringing us along on your restoration project. It turned out awesome, but after all the other projects you have posted, we only expected greatness, and you did no disappoint. In fact, you may have just raised the bar. Have fun on your next project.

Next week I will be taking my first load of tractors down to my sons place in southern Indiana.
So with the weather being warmer, I decided it is time to get the decals on the crawler before I take it down there.

And here I thought we'd see pics of it with half the paint wore off due to excessive use.

 

Looking good.
