Thank you 29Chev, I'll remember that for next time as its a bear to tie that up by yourself.

Your correct about the Bolens medicine.
Shoot, it's been so nice here the last few days I almost feel guilty layin around tryin to recover, cause I want to get outside and do something;) Now if I could only get this cough to go away.

Oh Yeah, VERY Nice. Don't know if 1 outshines the other, I feel more like the two Originals pay compliment to each other. One vintage, with a custom, handmade period re creation NLA accessory piece,soon to be vintage. I hear, Their all 'The rage' and considered highly desirable among many known Bolens Care providers everywhere. The standard of excellence and high artisan craft among others.

 

Speaking of shine can you make out a metallic sheen in paint on your frames? up close.

 

Oh, and the video.. I found myself waitin for something odd to happen in the background, like maybe a random pelican, suddenly land on the hood...Maybe next time? And I wanted to reach out and offer you a hot cup of fresh mint & ginger tea, with touch of brandy for medicinal usage only, of course. Feel Better Dude! Thanks for takin the time to share rather than keep us in suspense any longer.. :poke:

...And maybe one of those ties where ya give 2 or 3 wraps before pulling in for bows.

 

You guys should be proud, nuf said...

That actually works, I have done something similar with Honey, lil H2o, and a sprinkle of lime.

Matter of fact.....wait, too early for bed yet.

I do believe a nap is in order tho, don't wanna push my luck today.

That is one very nice 1050!! I watched your video and I couldn't get over the condition of the brown paint! it looks like it's pretty much ALL intact which is outstanding for a vintage tractor, I couldn't get over it. What an unmolested and original machine. You've got a great find there! :thumbs:

 

Oh yeah, the seat looks great!! You've mentioned a few times how the seat looks so much better than the rest of the tractor. The tractor is in such nice original condition that I think the new seat actually compliments it very well; in other words the seat (as nice and beautiful as it is) doesn't stick out or look out of place at all in IMO. It looks like you gave the tractor a refreshment and since the tractor is in such nice condition already the new seat could just as well be the original one! :thumbs:  :thumbs:

It did turnout very nice altogether. I am very happy with the end results, and only made the comments about the tractor looking as nice as the seat as a joke. For now I will just keep working on it little by little, but it really looks good as it is;)
