I’m hungry for a nap!  Got 5 hrs of plowing in this morning :handgestures-thumbupright:  Maybe a cinnamon roll would do instead though...

Nice!

Did notice a speck of dust to the right of the shifter in the last photograph...May want to clean that up before the boss does next QA / QC inspection...

Thanks for the heads up. I'll check that out. Hahahahahahha....

 

Funny thing is, when she was painting the letters on the side of the engine she found a small smudge that I had not even noticed. She couldn't let it go........

Ladies and gentlemen. Boys and girls. Children of all ages.

 

It is back together and running and I was able to drive it for a few feet.

 

Ignore the gaumy looking exhaust setup. That was temporary.

This tractor will end up with the stack I bought from @squonk which was originally made by @jimkemp.

I just need to pick up a couple of pieces.

 

Tonight we will finish putting on a couple of brackets and the hood and the lift lever.

 

Hopefully within a few days I'll take the time to turn this into the plow tractor for the driveway.

I have a sneaky suspicion that Trina may have done all the painting. :ph34r: Nice job, it looks great.

Adam I don't think that's a sneaky suspicion.

:D

 

I think that's the bald truth.

I sprayed a couple small things here and there but she did 98% of the painting.

some great photography

the posting that I do on this website is only a drop in the bucket compared to what she actually does.

Nearly every time we go outside for an adventure of snowshoeing or hiking or even just a short walk, she brings her cell phone which is her ONLY camera.

 

every year she uses those pictures to make a calendar which we hand out to friends and family.

In 2017 she captured over 1,700 images!!

 

As you can imagine it took her a few weeks to sort through those to find 30 or 40 for the calendar.

 

We've been mulling over picking up a slightly better quality camera......

The Cinnamon horse is looking great guys.  You guys make a great team in resurrecting these vintage machines and you have done some tasteful restomods for both form and function.  I can wait to see pics of this one with the last few details finished and out in the sunlight...:popcorn:

BTW—the kids picked up a new flavor of Cheerios that I had this morning for breakfast—Cinnamon Oat crunch!  It was good and the number one ingredient was whole grain oats.  Saw that cinnamon and thought of you guys and your:wh:!

Glad you finally got Ms. Cinnamon running!!!

That 7466 drive pulley is particularly noteworthy!

I have a fairly good quality digital camera that takes amazing pictures & the 30X optical zoom is fantastic at times. The only problem is that you have to remember to take it along. I end up useing my phone for most of my pics simply because it's always with me.

 

Cinnamon looks absolutely awesome!! Trina does great work! It was nice of her to let you help.:)
