WOW ! Great job. Very nice tractor.   Welcome to the forum.         How long did it take you do restore?                                                           Roger.

Forgot to mention. If you want to recreate the sales sticker that was on it. You can get a hold of clickitandstickit.com

They can make them for you.

Yep they do great work and it costs nothing to set it up. MDB fantastic job!. Maybe mine will look like that someday but for now I'm leaving it original.

Thanks for all of the nice comments. I forgot to add this picture of  the Dealer decal that Nate at clickitandstickit.com made for me. I am very happy with there products.

 

This was kind of a hurry up project because i wanted to have it ready for our local show.

Started the restoration on July 16th 2014 and finished it up on July 28th 2014.
