This is my first tractor restoration and the experence has been great. I will defently do this again. Here is what I started with, and where Im at as of tonight. Every nut and bolt was torn down and painted individually. Everything that needs to be brown is painted. I used rust-oluiem "Gloss leather brown" with valspar hardner. The paint was sprayed with a gun at my work. Im pretty happy with the finish considering I have about $40 into it. Im working on the wheels and seat to get the red painted. Pretty soon I will start cleaning the engine to get that painted. After that, it will be close to winter storage, and I'll have to wait for next summer to enjoy it.

The hood ornament wont stay on, but yes it was cool. Im waiting on Jestin at tubeframes to finish up my driveshaft rebuild to continue the assembly. I'll update with pictures when that gets done.
