The first drive

Alice and DeeDee out for a photo shoot

A look at the hood and gauge cluster

Shining the lights on the sides of the engine

And finally the decals are on!

Not completely done yet but ready for a parade

The Dyno operator hand signs a respectable 50 HP

On the dynamometer the temperature was showing hot.
They had an infrared temp sensor that said the temp was fine.
Home again I put the two guages in a pan of water together.

The water was about 185 degrees

There didn't seem to be any way to re-calibrate the guage.
I was able to clean the glass of the hard rusty film it had.
I masked the glass and bead blasted the bezel.
Then shiny silver paint made it look like this.

I think it will do just fine

The tractors first trip to the farm where it gets to stretch

DeeDee wasn't afraid to get dirty either!

Here on Christmas Eve out in the new snow

There were several other pictures from the photo shoot in the snow
