That tractor is a thing of beauty! 

Prayers have been said for full recovery and also wisdom and guidance for the surgeons and staff.  And also for comfort and peace for all of you during the time leading up to the surgery and during.

I wish my kids would rebuild my Sears for me.  Right now, I am not very happy with it.

Careful with the paint. It looks like it's still wet.

VERY nice restoration Chris!   :thumbs:   Since your Dad will need to take it easy for a while, looks like you'll need to load the tractor & Dad up, and hit some shows with that perty Custom 10!

Chris the tractor looks great!  I'm sure your Dad is going to be very proud to use it and very proud of his son.  I'm very impressed you could do such a nice job in such a short of period of time. :thumbs:  

 

Let us know how things go this next  week with your Dad's surgery.

Wow! I thought that when my Dad and I did my cub 124 in three weeks it was fast! And, it was already disassemble when we started! Not only did you do more work in less time, but you also did a better job! I am sure he will love it!

Ok, I just got back from delivering the Sears to my Dad. He loves it! He said he'll have to make a glass box for it lol. Here is a quick video of him driving it for the first time. Also a couple pictures.
