Now THAT is a restoration project. Are you doing all the engine rebuild and other mechanical work yourself?

Yes planning on it.  When I can wrestle a few sheckles away from the other half I was going to order the engine rebuild kit for the Kohler and a few mods from Kirk Engines.  I also have a few implements to build and/or retrofit.

After a LONG hiatus, back with some more rebuild pics.  Finally got a day to myself so I made some headway.  About ready to put the seat pan/rear fender back on and then get to rewiring the wire harness.  Found a great deal on tires on Ebay, if any of ya'll are in need, look into Greater Cleveland Tire!  Cheap prices, free shipping too.  Best price I had found on the lug tires was $204 a pair, got these 4 ply's for $157!   Also since it's too rich for my wallet right now, thought I'd pass on that there is a COMPLETE used factory 3 pt lift for a 145 or 165 on Ebay right now.  Needs sandblasting and paint, but looked like it was all there.

I like that, I hope mine turn out so well.

What blue did you use?

All the "Ford" blues I can get are way too dark.

Looks like a lot of fun. Makes me want a heated shop\garage even more, if that's possible. That paint really looks good, are those originally blue parts, or are you just going with the general Ford colors? Good luck with the rest of the rebuild.  :thumbs:

I just used Rustoleum medium blue.  The have a navy that was too dark but the medium was just about right.  I bought 2 quarts for about $13 each from the local hardware store and shot it with a cup gun.
