I'm probably about to get smacked but I like the before photos. If I had a tractor like the one in the new pics I'm scared I'd turn into Wildfire and not want to use the tractor! LMAO!

Wow! This is a project that turned out great. I would consider it second to none. Goes to show. If you put the time, talent and money into something it can turn out spectacular like this project turned out. Tip my lid to you sir. Outstanding. Pat yourself on the back. You deserve it

Wildfire,

Thanks very much but I have to say, compared to your fork lift, my B8200 is just my version of a rattle can paint job.

The tractor is intended to be the prime mover on our 10 acre retirement property in the Cariboo region of BC. My goal was to preserve it, make it easier to fix if I bust it and make it easier to maintain. Looking good will make the seat time more enjoyable but is actually a byproduct.

Yes, I did spend about $500 on paint and related supplies but I've found that cheap materials is a false economy and I don't want to do this again any time soon. (I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir on that one though. )

Again, I humbly thank you!

Can you do my tractor too?

I'll stop by when I heading down to Califonia to see Scott for a coffee.

It is really great job.

Joe.

No need to thank me. You did a great job on that machine and you deserved the pat on the back. It's tough to get something to the condition you got that tractor back to and those of us that have done this sort of thing have a greater appreciation when we see this sort of thing. I'm sure you'll enjoy your hard work every time you get in the seat. I know I do. I would be turning down work if I didn't have the old forklift. I take on bigger jobs now that I have it so it's paying for it's self. Congrats on a very nice bit of work.
