Nice, it is amazing how rims and tires can totally change the look of a car.

Thanks, this buildoff thing is fun. Kind of kicks my ass to get out in the garage, even if just for a half hour or so...

We got 6-8" of snow last night. First snow since October here! Played around with my '73 john deere 110. I bought this in boxes and assembled it about 10 years ago. 10 horse kohler engine but pushed/pulls like an ox!

Went thru my parts stash last night, wouldn't you know I found a front brake cylinder new in box =D> ...looks like I'll have a couple spares later this week. ](*,)

"Cool" engine Smile
911 operator: What is your emergency ? Me: Some asshole just pulled out in front of me & totaled my car! 911: Are you injured? Me: No. 911: Is the other driver injured ? Me: Not yet....but you should probably send an ambulance.

Pulled that bad cylinder off and new one bolted up. Once I get some help, I'll bleed the brakes and should be good to go =D>

Worked on electrical gremlins yesterday. I've got all the lights working right. Seems like I always get shorts when I let my cars sit.

Today, had the wife help with bleeding the brakes...all good. Dug the gas tank out of the shed, installed. =D>
