Donny, Great job! How about I send you a special decal to put on it? Don't pay any attention to the "Locator Beacon" markings on the package. :D :D :D :D

Congrats...You gave done a great job. Looks beautiful. Appreciate the pictures. Thanks.

Almost forgot...When you post pictures like these, always check that box that says to Disable BBCode in this post. Found out that it means Bigdog Beacon. Its a locator code that only he can cipher :wink:

Thanks alot fellas, I am quite proud :!:

The paint I used was Martin Senor color # 9954115. I set the wheels to the wide position because I like the looks. The lights do not have lenses because I haven't found any yet and the lenses I have were used for target practice. (Poor shot, not even centered :lol: ) Neither of the two Cubs I bought in Oregon were running. 49-1 also had tranny and final problems. The tractor has been rebuilt from the ground to the (not installed) rain cap. I have sent a picture to the fella in Oregon I bought it from but so far haven't received a reply.

HR,
The Ford is tired after 275K miles, needs a rest. Your employer should be proud of you for the hints :lol: :lol: :lol: :wink:

And those are not "cows" in the pasture...They are "Watch Bulls" who are not so patiently waiting to turn Bigdog into BigSoreCow if he gets too close :lol: :lol: :lol: 8)

Thanks again fellas :!: :!: :!: Couldn't have done it without you :!: 8)

Donny:

Thanks for the Paint Code for the Red. Have already added it to the master Paint Chart, will upload next time I have other stuff to do.

Question:

What brand/code for the silver on the rims?
What brand/code for the silver on the manifold?

Oh, which model for the muffler? Is it an IH item or aftermarket?

Any other tips/words of wisdom to upload??

Again, you did a bang up BZ job fer sure :!: :!: :D 8) 8) You can come help with Ellie any time you wish to :!: :D

Rudi,

I used ZRC Cold Galv. on the rims first, then sprayed them with Dupli-Color Silver. Both paints were in rattle cans. The manifold was painted with Premium Decor High Heat Spray #PD-1550 Aluminum, also in rattle can.

Got the muffler from Carter & Gruenewald. It came in a Case/IH box but no IH stamp on the muffler itself. 8)

As for words of wisdom...well you know :wink: 8)

Great job! I especially like the rear tires--would be thrilled to find a good set of 11.2-24's (old 10-24) like that for my Super A........

How do they ride on various ground/roadways? I have heard they are rather rough riding.
