I am going to try to protect the hours of body work on my grill housing. I painted and mounted the first prototyped section on my one B.

Jeez Dick, you must be tough on your tractors if you need that type of protection. You getting into "bumper tractor" in addition to pulling? I've got some protection also but it wasn't meant for that purpose:

Like me, I see you're not following the dominant "correct" thinking about rear rim color.

Some of us are not smart enough to know when cleaning up a rim that that the metal under the many coats of paint had galvanize on it some time or other. When I dont find any trace of galvanize I paint orange.

Top part is in the works. I just put the first part on to check fit and see how easy it was to bolt on.

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
