Cammo and you done good! That came out awesome!!

The Woods is incredible, now I guess I can't get away with painting mine IH white or some other lame color. I am a bit hesitant about the price of the factory stickers though, but it sure does look better with them.

Keep up the great work guys!

Holy crap that's a nice looking tractor! It looks like it just came off the showroom floor for gosh sake!

Make sure when you drive it to the mall that you park it way out in the parking lot so nobody dings your doors... :D

That 185 is beautiful. I even have the exact same mower deck. I've bought the parts that I know I need for sure, but that list will get bigger soon. I hope to finish dismantling and get the frame to the sandblaster today. That 185 makes me want to start to assemble some clean, painted parts.

Yes I do relize that, he just added it to my post for motovation. If it was mine it would still look the same after 6 years. Maybe!
