Looks great. You are alot closer than I am to done. It's better to wait till next time, than hurry and mess something up. :) :)

:) :P Looking good Donny. You are a little farther along than I am. I still have steering-shaft, front wheels & radiator +++ before "IT" lands on its feet again. I still have not painted my hood & dash yet either. :o

Looking Good :!:

You can tell that you are taking your time and doing it right!

Keep it up, next year it will be the darling of the show at Cub-arama :D

Lookin good, Donny, real good. is that one of the experimental 4 WHEEL DRIVE units? :)

Donny,

Lookin good! :lol: :D There will be other shows for it's to debut.

Does the little guy in the first picture help? He looks proud!

I have a new set of bar tread tires for Scruffy's front... and a nice set of original Firestones for the rears. I doubt we'd get our tractors mixed up, though.

You are doing a great job, your cub looks great. I was wondering if that is a new metal band on the starter, and if so where did you get it ? Keep up the good work. Paul K. in N.H.

Steven is 5 and does help but would rather be riding his dirt bike. He told me the other day "Dad I'll be glad when you finish that tractor so we can go riding." He is a big help and has quite a mechanical aptitude.

His proud look is just the reflection from my face :lol: :lol: 8)

Paul,

That's the metal band that came with the starter. Just cleaned and painted. 8)

Donny,
Those rear tires off the "headless Thompson Gunner"? :wink: 8)
I have to say, the front tires are starting to grow on me. :lol: :lol:

Harold,

No Roland still has his own set of rears. Those are the rear tires that came on the tractor when it was new.
They sure give a rough ride. Bump Bump Bump :lol: :lol: :lol: Good thing the seat spring works well :lol: :lol: :lol:

I like the fronts even if it's not FWD :wink: looks 8)

BTW, thanks for the pictures they're great :!: 8)
