  1. Looks great ! You sure did a number on that paint bringing it back to life. Congratulations, Hope with her running that you do not have many mechanical encounters Tony
  2. 10/4/21 Question for you guys ! look at bed see the stakes around bed ? two options ; 1st paint stakes red use 1x12 board line it with thin polished stainless covering both sides inside and out all way around bed . 2nd option ; chrome stakes use good quality 1x12 and Polyurethane it to the hilt all way around . Pictures for reference . the floor will be black powder coat Diamond plate , tank will be Red with chrome mounting frame and hold down straps . Lift will be red with yellow zinc coated chain . Sides of bed and head board will all be red , bottom of bed and frame black tell me you thoughts on each option please Tony
  3. 10/4/21 End by end of day . propane tank back from blasting , now to propane co for new valves etc . the lift’s motor and gear box has been rebuilt and painted and is being mocked up . Estimating measurements of tires and bed , however , wheels are not here yet so trying with just the tire . tony

  14. 10/30/21 Not a lot of Red here but never less we had a tractor drive Central Cal ! they traveled 21 miles to a fantastic BBQ provided by Scoto Bros of Merced . after lunch they traveled back to starting point making 42 mile Drive. 32 tractors made it to lunch . They traveled through Residential , industrial , by the old Castle Air Force base and out through vineyards and orchards all lined and speckled with old oak trees . lunch rendezvous was at a old sprawling beautiful Parreira Dairy farm under the oaks along the Merced River and because of a nice rain here last week the setting could not be nicer. I did not take a tractor this year , I had the pickup and a big tool box just in case . my pictures are little limited but I wanted to share a great tractor day with you guys and assure you that next year there will be more Red ! Lol the restored IH , Chevy , Studebaker trucks belonged to Mr Parreira the dairy and landowner and the old equipment was a retirement yard on the farm . the pic of the old Oliver Baler and tractor is to show one of our members , Eddie , what he missed ! Lol He likes IH but loves Oliver ! Imagine that ! BTW what do you think of that BBQ pit ? tony
