Well they didn't have Old Cat yellow, or Rustoleum Sunburst, I took a good look at the New Cat yellow out in the sunlight and I like it, seems to match better in natural sunlight than with the shop lights ??? so I'm going with it.

Repainted the frame, messy job removing fresh paint, comes off in strings.

Bringing back a few memories.

Good luck on the reassembly.    This isn't your first Elec-trak is it?   Rick

I did one of them and need to diagnose a problem with it now.

 Hopefully it is just the RTN and not the speed controller.

Yours is looking good so far.   Rick

More assembly, front bumper with the lift and front axle with tie rods, not much left to go on the bottom side of the tractor so it got rotated.

Also picked up some more paint and got the main dash tower painted. I have to move this Monday so wheels will be going on soon.

Today I started on the wiring, got all the high power wires run and about 1/2 of the smaller control wires on it.

Increased the size of the larger wires that feed the controller and motor from 6ga to 4ga or used 2 - 6ga side by side, try to minimize voltage losses.

Tractor now has wheels, rolling chassis, and can be moved around.

No painting done today and no pictures.
