I hope it turns out well! But, I'm just doing little things first, like paint the foot rest and the rims. Ian

Think I got ya both beat. 3 Years ago I sanded the hood on my 108 to get rid of the rust. Squirted some Rust Reformer on it. Haven't gotten back to do the rest of the tractor as yet! Oh, and I did get the wheels painted! One of these days I'll get back to it!

My wife gave me 6 months to get it done. That was in February. The engine block is at the shop fore a hone and valve job. The front axle is off, spindles are out. Getting new bushings ordered. Some parts are already sand blasted. It still has the rear,fenders , seat , and steering attached. It's like a fine wine. It takes time to get it right.

The 108 is my second tractor. It runs so well and doesn't look too bad. I just haven't taken time to make it pretty. I'll get to it in time!

I'm sure we will. Might give me some inspiration for the 108. But I have 3 ahead of it to get done first.
