Welcome aboard Phil. I've always liked the look of the black hoods.

It's great to hear that one more person is spending some effort on these great machines, and from what I've picked up, they're good machines to learn on.

You're not too far from us; I'm in Gloucestershire and the in-laws are in Warwickshire!

Good luck with it, remember to keep us posted here with your progress and ask any questions - there's not much the collective knowledge of RedSquare can't answer.

Looking forward to seeing some pictures!

Thanks for the welcome every one

I have uploaded some pics to the gallery of progress so far, but strangely the color looks orange in the pics but is in fact international harvester red a lovely deep red. i will try an edit next batch before posting to improve the color.

:WRS: from Hampshire Phil. Great to have another Euro member on the forum.

Thanks for posting some photos - looks like you've got stuck in there and made a great start.

Having uploaded photos to your album its a good idea to start a thread on your resto so that you can include them in it with a description of what you're doing and any challenges to be overcome. It's not just so that we can look at more tractor photos than we do already but it's amazing how other guys on both sides of the pond will come up with parts you need as well as the answers to issues you may encounter.

BTW don't forget to put your location pin in the member map, not everyone seems to get round to doing this which is a pity as it makes it look on the map as though there are fewer of us than there really are. :twocents-mytwocents:
