   The grille is not as nice as the pics make it look, there are a few good cracks in it and is has ben hacked pretty bad to go around the light bracket.  I am actually looking for a new piece of aluminum to replace it with now.

   took a break for a week or so, to cold for much else other than feeding the woodstove and complaining.  Gotten lots of parts in the mail and went out today to do little playing around, all the tires are mounted up and ready for install, got my fuel gauge in.  I did order another piece of aluminum mesh for the grille and that came in today as well, should look good when I get it all together.  I will try to get some pics the tractor tomorrow, it is looking good.  I replaced the handle on the lift lever with a piece of polished stainless which came out great but took forever. hopefully bring the chassis back home this weekend to begin the final assy

   As promised here are a few pics of the progress so far, I am going to bring it home tomorrow so I can get working on it again.

 

 

 

   One thing I do need are a few reference pics preferably with measurements for the bumble bee decals, anyone able to help.

Wow, it's coming along great Pete! It takes a lot of effort to get to that point. It's been too cold and I've been too busy to mess with the tractors. I can't wait to see that Allis with the decals on it.

doing the assy now, I started to put the decals on today and as soon as I got the first one on I remembered why I don't like this sort of work !!  I hate fine work like this, I put the dash decal on there and it came out ok but there are bubble in it that I hope will come out in the sun.  cot the new grille all cut out, now I need to polish the side plates up.

Looks great Pete, I just put on a dash decal too and I also got some bubbles. I can't see how it can be done in one try without bubbles. But again it's looking good , I've been waiting for your update.

   the only complaint so far I have about the decals is that the dash decal is not correct.  the originals are textured and this one is flat.  otherwise they are very nice and stick like crazy, I tried to lift the dash decal to get some of the closer bubbles out but it would have torn first and that was only after about 30 sec on there.

I use some water with a little mild soap in it and a soft rubber squeegee to work the decal where I want it and to get the air bubbles out from under it.

 

The tractor is really looking good !! :thumbs:

The reason the original decal was textured is to hide the inperfections of the dash were the studs were welded.Hard to believe we can't repro that decal they done it in the 60s???
