I know...one day in the sun isn't gonna cure the paint, but I get yancy & jump right in. I just had to mount the tires today. All went great. Treated them gingerly & just has a couple tiny spots to touch up, and on the back side. I put the side that will face outward on the tractor "down" on the changer, & mounted them from the back side of rim. Laid an old bed sheet on the changer before putting rim down. Not a single spec marred on the show side.
I am very pleased! Now time to get my "Caswell Copy Chrome" plating kit out & nickel plate the lug bolts!

Once I get the stuff painted I cant wait to put it back together.

Bring em over....but also bring a bunch of BBQ!


This is sounding like a good trade to me. I can haul all the parts down in the truck and pull the smoker.

Nice job on the rims and tires Daniel! That will be one sharp looking machine when you get done with it.

Thanks Maynard! You're my biggest supporter! I've been sandblasting more parts today. Will likely paint a bunch of parts later this week. Mostly smaller components like clutch/brake pedals, linkages & the like. This cooler weather sure makes a difference!

You do FANTASTIC work Dan! I just don't know where you find the time. Are there more hours in the day down there in KY?

Far as I know, same hours as your place. Since the weather has cooled, I can do a little in the evenings. When it was blistering hot, I did very little more than I absolutely had to do. Today I had the day off, so got a lot done. Once harvest begins, it'll be busy for a bit, so getting as much done as I can while I can.
