Hey Jim its too bad you did not get before pictures. I would say it was in pretty good shape before you even started restoring it from the looks.Or it could be that you did a really nice job with a lump of rust
Either way, nice addition to the fleet huh? It was even corrugated. I will never own one of those. I did some corrugating of plane soles at Lie Nielsen and it was never a good experience.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
