George did a wonderful job on the Wizard and was able to get it up and running in spite of me "helping". I do what I can when I can. Did the initial electrolysis on some parts and helped with blasting when George got the blasting cabinet.  I left all of the painting to him because I think run must be hidden somewhere in my middle name.The thumbs up was as much for George as it was for the Wizard.

Great job, looks good. It is suprising how differant the A-C orange looks with the yellow wheels.

George and George, It's so cool seeing/hearing it run and seeing Big George with that smile on his face. I can't think of a better home for it then where it's at. It is really going to look good at the shows mixed in with those Bolens tractors Y'all have.

I know you were looking for a decal sample.
The pic you took, there's a B&W version on this book. Maybe you can recreate it?

really nice job on this. I was going to say that I put manuals in the walk-behind section, I was thinking there was an emblem on them you could use as a pattern.

Have some more progress to post. Still working on getting a Wizard decal for the gas tank made up. Hopefully work something out here before too long. Dad redid the cultivators all by himself and did a terrific job. Took most of it apart, got it sandblasted and also did the painting. Still have a couple of spots that need touched up. Snapped some pics out in the driveway with the two pieces together.
