We're Done!

With everything now working properly, its time to put the finishing touches to this tractor.  On a final trip to Gap Tractor I am able to locate an original lower front hood panel, a piece that often gets damaged or destroyed on these tractors.  The price was right so I brought it home, cleaned it up and painted it.  The hood also gets a thorough cleaning, priming, and several coats of paint to get it smooth and shiny. 


On a warm weekend in March, Carl returns one more time for the final assembly.  We place and bolt the hood and grill and carefully apply the decals for that finishing touch.  After almost nine months of work, it’s again a Ford 841 PowerMaster.
