    Default 36 years ago...

    36 years ago today I got a price quote on what became my first new tractor. I bought it less than 2 months later. This morning I FINALLY finished the repainting that's been ongoing for 14 months. After making sure all the red was done, I went back and 2-toned the battery side covers. (below steering column)

    Still to go; Re-install remote hydraulics removed to paint. Install oem rops and canopy. New rear tires. (old ones wrong size...one size too big) Install new grill that's been in the shop for 5 years. (old one has a few character marks) Paint and install new right rear fender. (old one has several character marks)

    Dang. I thought I was about done.

    First pic is before painting side panels.

    next 3 are what I THOUGHT was a finished tractor.

    Nice rig, tractors with the lights in the rear fenders were always my favorites for style.

    If I was farming with something like that, I don't think I'd use Farmwithjunk for a user name.

    Some of the OTHER stuff I used wouldn't make it past the obscenity filter.

    Looks Good!!! And on the rest of your machinery, if it works when needed should be all that counts to gain parking space!

    I've got a 135 in need of the same treatment.

    Wanna call it your next project Farmwithjunk?

    Sure! All it takes is a tractor, a willingness to spend money recklessly, 2000 hours on ebay, probably $4000 worth of nickel and dime items, 16 months, and I don't even want to know the electric bill for having the shop lights on 'till 1AM so many nights.

    Beautiful tractor. Good job. Are you reluctant to use it now that it's all fixed up?

    That tractor looks great, I've followed your posts on the redo and am impressed everytime I look. Thanks for the update. There's a good looking Massey within 8 miles of my house that I drool over everytime I see it. Not sure if it's a 135 or a 150.
