Awesome job Will but that's to be expected. I was going to ask what's your method of lowering it but I seen the block & tackle with a movable lift rack...nice !  :thumbs:

 

WHITE

For the record I knew it was a color, but I had to google it because I had no idea what it actually way.

WHITE 

 

White is what they will be painted today. My choice too.

 

I use the gantry crane to get them up on the horses, but going down I use ramps, and

a winch to control the rate of descent. I find that easier, than trying to rig spreader bars

and slings to the single lift point, without damaging the tin.

Thanks.

Last Thursday, was the first nice day we've had in a long time, so

I took it out for a ride. That was good, "beat the winter blahs therapy"

Fine looking tractor Will! Thanks for the pictures! It's nice that one of those early MF GTs was saved from a possible end in the scrap yard.

It looks a little cold sitting out there! Hope you took it back in by the fire.

Very nice!
