Got a few things in the mail today I'm Still waiting on the decals'seat and axle tube bushings,at least I have half a tractor!!

Seat decals add axle tube bushings came in today.It took a while to figure the seat out,It's not quite the same as the one that came off. the fenders were a little pitted ,the seat pans going to take a lot of work . One more day closer!

Well guy's 32 day's and a lot of hours its almost done I just have to tie up some loose ends I'm waiting on the muffler ,the PTO from AC Killer and some fine tuning looks ptetty nice don't ya think?

I must be doing something wrong because it took me all afternoon to remove the running boards, then do a rough sand and prime job on the frame of my MF16. Last time I came that close to a complete dissasembly of an AC was my B10. That has been in the works for over 6 months. Do you sandblast these to bare metal?

Thanks Chris I haven't sandblasted annything yet ,But the seat pan on this one might need to be.I have a 3300p.s.i. preasure washer hot with a turbo tip ,it's so strong itwill take decals and a lot of paint off, It's a big time saver.

As always, that looks great. I just can't figure out where you find all this time. I'm retired and still can't keep up with all my regular chores, let alone spend the shop time I would like to. Keep up the excellent work, we all love your pictures. Even though you make us look bad.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
