First Implement Restoration

Postby darkmuncan81 » Sun Nov 06, 2022 7:09 pm

I’m new to restorations, my Cub is a working tractor I inherited from my wife’s grandfather. I’ve spent the better part of this year dialing it in and getting it in top shape after sitting in his shed for 20 years.
That all said I’m just now getting time to start trying to repair/restore his implements, at least the ones I’ve found in the woods and weeds behind his shed. Here’s some pics of the carry-all I recovered in May. I used it all summer with just the two planks but finally got time to fix it up right and paint it. Even made a back gate insert. I used the manual on this site to get the dimensions of the missing lumber, so thank you for that resource!

I agree, you did a nice job on it.

Looks great. Original paint was flat black.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Thanks Barnyard, I had no visual reference to go off of and it had been painted green at some point then red over that. After sanding it down I just decided it should be international red. Someone mentioned to me that there were original decals for it, no idea where to find them or where they actually go on it. Do you know?

Tim Talleur (tst on the forum) makes them. Send him a PM, or he'll probably see this.

I should clarify, the boards should be flat black. The metal is red. Decals from TST as Bob suggested.

Thanks for the tip! I need to wait until the wood cures a bit (pressure treated) but I’ll consider the flat black, was just going to stain it but the black is compelling.

I did this in August. I didn't prep the wood as good as I should have.
