Thanks, I just wanted to get some paint on it before this summer. It dosen't look as sharp as Ralph's yellow one. But mine is a working tractor. My main reason for "working on it was to fix the fan and electrical stuff. Which led to a paint job .... etc. Got it back together this evening and crunked her up, sure was good to hear her run again :D It gave me a chance to check out my wiring and re-located oil pressure guage all is well :!: ....The garden is calling :wink:

Well in any event Kodiak, it's looks nice now.

I too will be using mine as a work tractor, but sure is going to be a bad day when I get that first dent and/or scratch, :cry: BUT then again, they stock IH 2150 on the shelf at all times. :D I guess that's why I didn't take the extra time to get every single inperfection out of the hood and grill. Also, just because it's going to be a work tractor, don't mean we have to abuse them either right :?:

This is what Mary said, "Well since you have it all pretty now, I guess your just going to sit and look at it now?" :roll: That silly girl! She should have known better, for I don't own nothing I can't use.


Sat Feb 26, 2005 6:20 am done a GREAT paint job Son :wink: !!! And, do I ever LIKE your oil pressure guage idea :D (I'll have to think now about relocatin' mine).

That's one of the GREAT benefits of many NICE folks with so many GOOD ideas :) !

Beautiful job, Kodiak!!

Regarding the tubing kit.....what type of tubing came with the kit, that is; steel, copper? And which auto parts store did the kit come from?

I just HAVE to do one of mine this way :?

Many thx :!:

Thanks guys, I didn't take all the little dings out either I guess it's a 10 foot paint job ...looks great from 10 feet or so :D . The tubing kit came from Advance Auto parts and the tubing was plastic. It makes it easy to route with the wires and out of sight. As far as that first scratch....I just don't want to think about it :( but your right that's why they stock IH 2150 :D
