One piece at a time...

Recommended Posts

My 14 year old son, Brody, has been working on the Farmall 240 Johnny Cash style, one piece at a time.  He has cleaned and painted the hood and grill pieces and repainted the emblems.  He got it back together today, and I think it looks pretty dang good.  The first pic is where we paused in July, the rest are more recent.

Just had to brag on the youngin.

Looks like he is doing a great job redoing it.  He will learn a lot with this project. You can be very proud of him.   More kids need to be like him.

Thanks for the kind words - he is a good kid.  Wanted, not told to but wanted, to go help me build a wheelchair ramp with a church group last weekend and went with me to finish the hand rails today.

He had a ball mowing with his 240 and a finish mower today.  I'm glad he didn't drop his phone while videoing - Momma wouldn't have understood.
