Excellent progress. My vote is for turquoise. I get ribbed all the time for having a turquoise lawn tractor and it's time for somebody to share the pain! ;)

My project list is long, but could do this someday. You're a brave man for being the first, though.

Thank you! It's been a long road getting this far. Just glad the design worked as easily as it did. It wouldn't be too hard to make it hydraulic, if some one wanted. I'll be very happy with it. Just hope the weather will let me paint it. May have to wait for Spring for that.

I'll vote for Ford Blues as well. Will look good behind your Ford LGT 165.

Great decision Kenny, blue paint always looks good on a classic, and your dump trailer is soon to be a classic.

Got the framework coated with Rust Reformer yesterday. I'm looking into a way to put grease zerks on the movable joints. I need to thicken up the pipe I ran the pins through. May have to cut some small pieces of 3/16" or 1/4" to weld on and drill/tap for them. Then I have to get the 50 lb. weight set on something solid so I can get the bed bottom flattened some. I got some new valve stems so I can get the tires back on the rims. While at Lowes, I grabbed a can of appliance white for the bed. I still need to get another can of Blue. Lots to do yet!

This is from the same grease fitting site , special ones you would have to tap but might not need to weld anything to make the pipe thicker , the one only needs 1/8" of thread , Al

Got a little paint on things yesterday.

The main frame needs turned over so I can do the under side. I put the valve stems in the wheels, have to remount the tires. Got some metal pieces for the grease zerks figured out.
