Brutus is still progressing

Postby JimT » Wed Jun 17, 2009 7:11 pm

Thought I would put a photo of the progress on Brutus out here.

Here are a couple of photos.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!

Jim,
Reminds me of a Cadet that was at ConnectiCubFest III this year;

My oldest son spoke with the owner who said he could have it back on its' original undercarriage in about an hour.
Some people just have too much time!

It is airburshed on. A local guy here does air brushing. I found a picture on-line and took it to him and he did the airbrushing. I think it turned out pretty good. It even looks better than the photo.

It looks cool. I seen it on another web site. There is also a You-Tube video with the guy driving it in the snow.

These are so neat. That video is so cool. I hope for the day to get some finally running good so i can have some idle time to play with something else too. I have a 122 and another 108 that i'm not planning on putting to work. One has to be a bigfoot cub cadet build for sure. I can't drive it do to my disability I can't climb up on it but i'll have my sons build it and drive it. Just one more thing on my tractor do list. Hmm i have 4 extra 13.6 x 16 tires on 154 rims. But these really need a 4x4 setup for sure.

I have to show the kids these pics and video's.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
