It's looking great glad to see your getting time again to work on it. The vintage wire wheels make it look like a bugati or something from the 20's racing circuit.

Thanks Greg. Love the old Bugattis. I think this may be as close as I get to owning one though, lol. Here's a nice one.

I had never heard about those races before. Just Googled it and, wow, to say the least. That's something I'd like to attend in the future. The early Grand Prix stuff is pretty amazing.

Yours is close enough. We'll call it a Cubgatti!

I like it Rich, but we'll pronounce it Coob-gah-tay. Sounds more authentic that way  :smilewink:

Just found this thread.   GREAT project/idea/craftsmanship!

 

I recently got my first I-H- Cub,  a lo-boy none-the-less and read through this project when I found it on a I-H Cub forum. 

Keep up the good work!   :thumbs:   :worshippy1:

Thanks Kris, I appreciate the kind words. Not too sure how most folks take a project like this over at the IH forum, but the limited feedback has been positive and encouraging. It's my ultimate goal that when you look at it, you will still see Farmall/IH. It is a company steeped in history and performance, and I want this to honor that in some small, if not a bit different, way.

 

I've actually meant to reach out to you about that COE in your screen shot. Is that yours? Love to know/see more. Big, big fan of COE's  :thumbs:

Ahh, wee wee.......the accent is on the "g" and the "h" is silent. It's pretty much the same as Renault.

There isn't a pic of the tractor on this page, even. Thread ranking goes down if that happens......
