Thanks for all the great compliments ! 30 years of building airplanes for most of the major companies have made me anal when it comes to going the extra mile for accuracy and finish . Fortunately there are enough of us around that some detail parts are being reproduced . I know that I looked far and wide for Kohler engine plates . They quit making them years ago so I was forced to have them reproduced . I'm also having the tractor's serial number plate ( the one on the transmission ) restamped with the correct size and color information block so that it will look as new as I can make it . Why not go just that little bit extra . After putting in new wiring, decals, paint/powder-coating, battery, headlights and taillight , tires, wheel bearings, grease fittings, etc, etc , etc , why not . I want this investment to last a long, long time . I use my tractors . No trailer queens here .
I'll continue to post to the forum as long as it takes to get the tractor done .
Hope I'll be seeing guys, like Tractorholic, at next spring's local garden tractor shows ; Manchester, Dover, Bainbridge .
