Guys, how about posting some before and after pics of your tractors that have been repainted/refurbished/restored?

 

I know that we see them in various build threads, but it would be nice to see them all in one place.

 

I'll start with pics of my Bolens 1886 with the forklift attachment that was refurbished by Ben Wagner (superaben here on the forum).

 

The poor old girl had been rode hard and put up wet on multiple occasions:

But after a visit to VA, she came back looking like this:

Here are some of the pics of projects I have on my computer.

 

This is my wife's 1964 Rugg 5044. It started as a shell with no engine and bad transmission; was sitting in a field. At tractor shows she would always ask why there were never any pink tractors; so I made her one.

After completing that project her father (my father in law) jokingly said since she got a pink one I want a Star Trek tractor as he is a huge trek fan. So I decided to actually do it. I can't find a before of the whole tractor but it was just an old 10/36 Craftsman like I found a pic of.
