Was surprised to find it in garage after work. Dad must have been busy! He isn't home to show off his work! :) I love the looks of the wheels and blower in the darker red. Blower was at first coated a lighter red, not as close to the color as I thought. Dad also took notice of me having issues getting on it. Our Suburban SS10 had a set of well home made running board type steps on it. Makes it easy to get on her. The Bolens gives me issues to get on. Dad made up a step for me from a old scrap exhaust shield! I'm sure it will be detailed and painted, he must have decided to do it right before he left to take aunt to airport.

Late to the party, but let me say what a Nice restoration that is. I know you weren't going for perfect, but it sure does look sweet

As for your new friends, you probably will see him again in about 20-25 days. The one we have around here seems to make the circle about that often. They each have a different time table and route, but I've been told that if they find food near your place they will be back repetitively.

Nice trail cams, by the way

Very nice, I'm sure I'll see it in use this winter! I would love to test my blower but I digress.
