It's abouty time I posted on here. Been checking out the forum for awhile now gathering info for the rebuild of my MF12. In short I have had the tractor for 9 months trying to decide if I am going to use it for tractor pull or rebuild it back to showroom condition. Well its been decided, it's going back to showroom condition. So my work is cut out for me now. This is gonna be fun, and with the helpful minds on here i'm sure i'll have no troubles.
I'll start this thread off with pic's of how it sits now. As the build goes on i'll keep updating with new pics.

Cheers from Canada

Welcome from Nova Scotia. I'm not real famailiar with the 10/12 but there are many others on here who have one. The tractor looks in pretty good shape but there are a few pieces missing. We all like to see photos of restorations.

Welcome to GTT! I've seen much rougher stones turned into gems, so jump right in on the project. Great therapy & lots of fun. Sure there will be trying times with any project, but worth it in the end. Look forward to following it.

Hello and welcome to the fun, there are a bunch of us undertaking a restoration so there's a lot of help and info here, as for the missing and new parts be sure to shop before you buy, there is a wide spectrum of prices out there.

Cheers from California

I'm pretty sure i have 90% of the parts...the ones missing from the photos are actually in a box ready for sandblasting. The belt covers, foot boards, gonna need a new panel surround and steering wheel but sure to find them.

:welcometogttalk:Welcome aboard. That's one nice looking 12G you have there. Can't wait to see the progression. Let me know if you need a mower deck for her. I may have one available.
