Final assembly pictures will be posted when ready. Take a look at the fit and finish - better than factory new!
All surfaces are inspected and anything not meeting Dave's standards is done again. Final assembly begins after secondary components are blasted, primed and painted. Special consideration is given to hood, fenders and finish surfaces.
Once major components check out, everything is soda blasted, cleaned, primed and painted.
Note the surface finish. Factory finish was never even close to Dave's standard. Original paint actually came off new tractors in sheets as paint prep was not considered important during that era. It wasn't unusual for factory builds to be inconsistent, as tractors were considered simple tools. While robust and well built, there was little attention to detail from the factory. Dave's builds are show pieces as well as work ready.
