Been doing quite a bit on this restore. Got most, but not all red components painted. Got some of the sheet metal bolted on, and I went with stainless steel bolts, polishing them first. She's starting to come together nicely now. Still a lot more to do, but getting further and will definitely finish before winter is over.

Thanks Phil, I'm taking it slow as I can & putting lots of patience into this one. I want this to be my flagship of my whole herd.
Got the steering column back in & dug out more parts to get cleaned up & painted. Won't get anything done to it tomorrow, as we're having out Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. Gonna jump back into it Saturday as it's my day off all day long.

That tractor looks better than new. I'll bet they never came from the factory that shiny.
Can't wait to see it finished.

I now even have a "Bush Hog" snowblower for this model tractor coming my way in February. I may never mount it up, but want it as part of my collection just the same. It's in Minnesota and a friend on another forum saw it listed & knew I would love to have it. My friend lives in Wisconsin & took it upon himself to call the guy. He only wanted $40 for it, so he offered the guy $65 if he'd drop it off at a truck terminal near the seller. That terminal is one of the same company terminals my friend works for. The truck will drop it at his Wisconsin terminal for free. My friend has been wanting to come 500 miles to Louisville for the National Farm Machinery Show for some time, so he figured this was why he'd waited so long. Having such kind/thoughtful friends on my few forums I visit is such a great thing & really makes you realize how lucky you are to have them. He & I will meet up in Louisville, hang out, get some pics, then I'll head home with a RARE snowblower and great memories!
There are those guys on every forum that display such acts of random kindness. Phil is one of those here at MT. I always try to "pay it forward" whenever I can. It is a great feeling when you help others for no reason other than to do something good for someone else.

This project has been on the back burner for some time now, but reviving it, as my local show is October 1st.
Unless there's an odd part I forgot about, all parts are painted. Now just to cure & do final assembly! I think I'll make my show yet!
Here are the parts I shot today, and the HVLP gun I use. The price is still on it that I paid at a Peddler's Mall. Even came with case & spare parts & care kit! It does a great job too! OOPS, just remembered the starter needs painting! Dang!
What looks like orange peel in the seat base is just the pitted metal. No need to slick it up being a seat will be covering it anyway.

Edited to add: I messed up my album, so these aren't the pics I originally had in this post...sorry bout that)

Won't be long now! Good to see you had some tinkering time. The finished product will be quite a picture.

She is done! Got the seat & backrest back from the upholsterer just yesterday & had a show today. Took home "Best of Show Garden Tractor"!







My Bush Hog V4-6 brought home "Ugliest Garden Tractor"! Was a good day!

The best of show was well deserved!!! Looks awesome, the work and time really paid off! How often do you get to take home a trophy from both ends of the spectrum!?
