Thanks Rick. Hope your day was a good one!

Carl its just blacken then buffed out. You can't see it real good in the picture but the gears and the sides of the drums are weathered red.

Both the wood and metal finish look great.

Jerry,
It does look good. I saw that red color yesterday but thought it was just a glitch in the picture. Nice finish on the metal. What goes with this, or is it a stand-alone machine ?

Nice Jerry! I was going to ask as well about the weathering, and saw you said you blacken-it then buffed it out. Looks great!

Jerry,

With so few s-b-s builds going on these days, I figured you were a "fair leader"..
It will be a great addition to the tugger with this tractor. Will this be polished as well or will it be a rusted combination ?

A quick update on the Fordson. its not painted or line up but to show the pictures on how it goes.

The gray on the hood and radiator is color the Fordson will be.
There are still some detail parts missing that don't get painted the gray.
Also there is the front end and wheels one tie rod is missing that goes under the tractor which will be put on later!!

Frank I did get the drift!! Thanks for your help!! Might need some more...
