Ronnie preparing the brackets to add the refinished front-loader bucket.
Our first tractor.
Ronnie and I alternated time in the barn for weeks to paint the International 666 beast. I'd tape all morning, and he would paint in the afternoon. We had to tip-toe around to keep from kicking up dust. The tractor frame isn't twisted; it wasn't parked level in the barn. We had to tuck it back in a corner to keep it out of the dusty Kansas wind while the paint dried.
The tape was as hard to peel off as it was to put on.
Ronnie made all the hydraulic lines by hand to make sure they fit.
