I was going to send a carb to Dan England today but the post office was closed so I painted instead: 8)

Donny,

Looking good, looking real good. I know that I was happy with mine when I got it to this point. You can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

The part that I hated about painting was all the clean up, still cleaning up overspay off of everything. I see that you even put up plastic sheeting like I did, helps alot but that overspay is so fine it still finds it's way into things.

Keep up the good work, Donny

Looks great.. I can't wait till I get to this part.
If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use duct tape.

Underside of the hood? I think the garage door would look good in IH 2150. Looks good, Donny.

Nope, the hydraulic lines are taped purposely. I had painted them black so had to blue tape them.

Well, I have seen this tractor in various states, literally! :lol:
Never the less, each phase looked professionally done. This one would definately be front row show quality. Nice Donny. 8) 8)
Next year, when you look out over your cub empire and wonder, what shall I bring to Cubarama??? This would be it. :lol: :lol:

Art,

Those fans worked great. I made a small room with plastic drop cloth leaving an open space at the top. I put two of those $10 fans under the garage door. It worked a lot better than I expected. The only over spray is a small amount on the floor. The door is clean with no red tint. Best of all, there were no fumes or any over spray in the rest of the garage.

Fellas,

With all the kind words, I'm going to have to get a bigger hat :D :D :D :D :D 8)

Real nice job Donny, painting tractors / machinery has to be the worst thing to paint with all the nooks and crannies to get to, again, great job.




P.S. inside of left brake peddle. possibly inside of clutch peddle, Hmmmm I wonder how I'd think of that
