I'm thinking it turned out pretty good. And you can see from the color of the grille I used the results of the poll to determine the color.

I wanted to share these pictures with the people that will appreciate all the time that goes into these little tractors. And the people of this fantastic board who made the job easier 8) Many thanks, this board is beyond belief :!: :!: 8) 8) 8) WAY WAY 8)

And to the vendors that sponsor this site. A clutch from JP's and various parts from TM Tractor Parts.Thanks Fellas :!: :!: 8)

That looks GREAT.

Well done
If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use duct tape.

Donny,

You have raised the bar!

That is one beautiful job you've done there. I love those Scruffy inspired fronts. People ask me all the time, "why bother with those old tractors?"

You have got the answer!

Gives us all something to shoot for.

Donny:

First off, fantastic job! Second, what paint did you use? Mine is just beginning the reassembly stage, so I'm collecting recommendations.

Absolutely maaaavalous!! 8) 8) . I knew this project was going to turn out good when I first saw it. I'm green with envy :mrgreen:
I like the un-painted boltheads. I can only hope the fifty turns out half as good. I think the cows are jealous too. They all went to the other side of the pasture. :wink: :wink:
Donny, the Ford looks tired. :( HR

Donny,

You have done a GREAT job :?: I like your decision to paint a few parts black.....sets it apart and makes it unique. 8)

Two questions if I may:

Why did you choose to set the wheels in the wide position :?:

Where is the glass for the headlights :?:
