Big Ten progress

I will attempt to get a pic of my progress. I doubt if I will get the rest of the parts all done this year as weather in Pa. may not co-operate with me. You can see I do have a wooden floor rather than the old dirt one too.

Thanks for the nice remarks. I used MDB's article to help me make my choice. I found out after I had purchased the paint that the color was for later models. Probably no Blue Ribbons as the color is not exactly right. I will probably only use it in local parades and etc. The paint is Martin Senour Crossfire Acrylic. Not being a professional painter more paint was used than expected. This tractor is fully retired from work. I would put it in my living room if the room was large enough. It was my father's and has done a lot of work. I have the original tiller and sickle bar mower too. The rotary mower is beyond repair. I have enjoyed this job as it brings lots of memories to mind. My plans are to use new hardware and assemble carefully. Wish me luck when I get this far. I have the parts book and a B10 that is intact yet for reference too. One of the best reference places I have available to me is a bunch of knowledgeable guys at www.simpletractors.com

Looking good Dorise. At this point in time, can anybody really tell if a color is off a little bit? Anything with the original color is fadded anyway. If you lined up half a dozen originals side by side, I expect they would all look a bit different from their exposure to the elements.
