We were at Garden Tractor Daze in Portage, WI last summer and it was an inspiration to keep chugging along on this to have it ready for this summer. Unfortunately, a newer job for me, young kids and general life have all slowed this up and we're not going to have any tractors there again this year. At least the kids will have fun at the Dells and my wife can get some sun this weekend after the show!

The two-tone rims turned out very well, as well as everything else so far! Nice work!

Thanks for the pictures of the cultivator! I have the same one and should be cleaning and painting for the IH show next summer too!

The stickers make the cultivator pop. I see one on the top angle bar in one pic and a different side one in another.
I had forgotten about the engine being white, made me zoom in LOL
It's neat you're leaving it that color, it'll make for a conversation starter.

What colour did you use for the silver sheet metal, dash tower, and gas tank? Doesn't look like it matches the grill which would be silver mist, although I was thinking the correct colour would be flint grey metallic to match the frame. Been awhile since I've seen one restored correctly. Either way it looks good, coming along nicely.

Beautiful job. The silver and red Masseys were always my favorite color. After seeing yours, I have got to get me one to restore.

mac102004, we used Flint Gray Metallic on the frame, brackets and accessories. Silver Mist was used on the grille and wheels.

Looks very nice you did a fantastic job. The battery decal sets it off

Awesome work! Right down to the new bolts holding on the spades on the cultivators! I have moved my cultivator closer to the garage!:)

Just a little off topic but where and what clevis pins did you use to mount it? I have the rototiller but the manual makes no mention of what size the three should be.
