Thanks Rob, I just came in for a break and a cup of coffee. I just finished painting the steering components and I'll install them tomorrow. The seat, wheel weights, and hood will get paint tomorrow, then I have to work on the seat mount and rear fenders. The tractor will be done on Friday, and it's taken three months working on the tractor here and there to get to this point.

Thanks Ellis, it took quite a bit more work than I expected. It's usually the case though!

Almost done. Always seems to be one more thing to do.

Boy that's a nice looking tractor classic you done good, hope you get some recognition at the show. Have you driven it since the painting?

Thanks GB, I really do like the looks of this Page. I painted the hood today and I have to paint the seat mount and draw bar assembly. I'll be taking it for a ride tomorrow but I won't be installing the draw bar until after the show. It's a small show that I go to almost every year and their aren't many garden tractor guys there. It will be fun to just finally relax for a weekend.

Thanks Craig., it was a challenging restoration, but well worth the effort. I took a picture of my daughter taking it for a ride this past winter and she said,"What the heck kind of steering wheel is this?" I got a kick out of that.
