Gold 1026


Recommended Posts

This is the way I got the 1026 with its 1/4 mile  paint job....at night.... in a snow storm. There was even one decal painted over. 

I felt good about getting one from within MN but it’s been a challenge. 1st the hydro was weak & then engine problems. Won’t have it if I don’t think it could plow all day. 

Now we’re on the home stretch. Sheet metal already done. Working on chassis 

more pics to follow.

Josh is the paint expert that did a wonderful job “in my opinion “

Josh is no stranger to tractors. He is in the “ Red Tractor” book page 148 with Danny & his black stripe 1066 is on page 161. 

Allen is the detail man in the picture that keeps Josh in line.
