Wow, a restored GTTalk cart......... It has to be worth more than the JD,IHC.,Case,Gravely and Massey carts combined. Very nice work, looks great. Shawn

But there are people on other forums (they know who they are) that really like my pics, and take them to make their 'forum look good', so I want them to know, where they originated so I put a little reminder on them...and to give GTTalk some kudos for the awesome site...

Well I kinda wish you'd edit that a bit...but they don't hate me. It is one guy...in fact all the guys there liked me...and when I came here I brought a couple very active and respected members with me...that might not mean anything to you. But a lot to me...

That guy has been banned from here...that guy has been banned under multiple screen names from several CCI forums, yahoo, MTF, and here. The members never had a problem w me it was one guy... So, in that you're having fun with this...what would you do to protect your interests? Photos? ya they are mine, from my lens, through my camera and yep I downloaded them and posted them...so they are mine. Sorry about the 'tone' but I am annoyed that they feel my work ( and yes these are projects I work on)...is their property....it is NOT.

Don't worry, I understand completely, I have a few pics I would like to take down on some other forums but I still have the originals. Worst they can do is sue me, and ya know what, I still have the camera card they came off of, and the tractor in the pic, so they got the picture, big deal. The internet is a huge system, and pics are always a problem, I never brand mine because I don't care. I personally believe if they use my pics then they must like what I have. I am sure if you want you can sue them for your pics, but then again, we all have bigger things to do than sue over stuff put online. I think we do need to get the thread back on topic, I think we ranted enough. It is sad that one guy can screw up a lot for a lot of people.

Might have to get some decals to put on my trailer when I get around to building it. Thanks for the idea.

Looking very sharp. Nice job hiding its age!
What tractor do you plan on putting in front of it?

My friend has a few to choose from, the cart is from the mid 60's era, So it would go perfectly with a 130, 155, 180, or 195, or his T-90...and I know he has all of those (although we are waiting on a shipper for his 180 from Portland Ore). As sharp as this is and it has taken us a couple months, we have been learning on it and trying new processes and chemicals...plus we only get weekends. The real 'gaga' moment will be when we restore his 'Colt' trailer. put the case trailer behind a perfectly restored Case, and the Colt trailer behind a perfectly restored Colt...then snap some photos...Most of us would never see such an ensemble in our entire lives...<And THAT is our plan :-)
