Nice job. I'm renovating a 200 but it won't look anywhere near as nice as yours does.

So far I have hauled 12 loads with the spreader and then washed it inside and out, but I haven't waxed it yet.

I don't know whether I am more impressed with the restoration :worthy: or that you can actually use it like it was meant to be used after doing all that work :worthy: . THERE IS NO WAY I COULD PULL THE TRIP LEVER ON THAT FIRST LOADER BUCKET. I could (and would) pull the trigger :shock: though on who ever did after I spent that much time and effort.

Scrivet, I'm guessing he might seat some local politicians in it for summer parades. He just wanted to make sure he could deodorize it afterward. :D

Curtis,

An excellent job! Sure would like to see it in action, the unloading not the loading. :)

great job Curtis , I too like the idea of using these things , even after the resto. is finished . Sidenote : if you bring it down to DSCF , you could have it "filled" as much as you want in no time , but it might be a little "hot" for immediate use :wink: . coppersmythe..................................................
