1948 Farmall Cub and Prewitt PHD

Postby Stanton » Tue Jun 19, 2012 6:23 am

Last summer, I knew I had my work cut out for me on this fencerow, poison ivy Cub...

Image

Image

But after many months of hard work, here it is...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The Prewitt Conversion Unit...

Image

And Prewitt Post Hole Digger...

Image

Image

Image

And here's my version of a Farmall Cub "dipstick"...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Thanks for all who helped answer questions and to Mike and Eugene at the MidMO ShowMe CubFest this year!
