Looks fantastic so far! I'm a big Panzer fan but there are none to be had up here in eastern Canada.

Hey Chris;

   I was going to take a ride up there today just to make sure this thing was getting done "right" but I can see you're doing just fine without my 2 cents worth :worshippy1: .  What I really like about this project is that it looks like you're doing a "historically correct" restoration. These tractors didn't come from the factory with polished hardware. Most parts were painted over (nuts, bolts, washers, wiring, motor, etc).

   One of the best examples I've seen of this kind of restoration belongs to Ellen Haynes of Dandy Sales. Unfortunately, after years of restoration work, she doesn't get to show it very often due to lack of room in the Fun Mover. I think hers is a T-75 with a Briggs and the optional starter/gen kit. A set-up you don't get to see too often.

   I'm looking forward to seeing the end result of this restoration also and am surprized at how quickly it's progressing. And the NOS meter? Nice touch. :thumbs:  

   Actually, my wife's T-707es started out as a "historically correct" restoration but I got carried away with it until she finally put the brakes on my "artistic license" :smilewink: .

Thanks for the offer. That's always the problem for us folks out here in the tractor wilderness of east coast Canada.  After I retire I will be looking for a special tractor to restore and use. A panzer would be high on my list.

So im not alone eh? I do find that people are starting to be aware of GTs though. Prices on kijiji are going up real fast.

Yes, they are pretty ridiculous down here on the east coast. There just aren't a lot of tractors coming up for sale here these days.

All the parts I have been getting ready for paint have been in great shape. I pulled the seat cover off and the seat is mint. The steering shaft end where the wheel goes on is bagged out. someone didn't put the key way in .So ill make a new shaft. Replacing bearings in the swing arm. Pulleys all cleaned. The fenders are almost ready for paint.
