Just got a note from Cub-bud. Bud and his Dad have been working this week to get Missy primed. Image

More pictures are at ... UE/primer/

Sure is looking good to me.

Lookin' good John! I'll bet you're like a kid at Christmas right now!

Looks there is another waiting in the wings! Looking forward to seeing Missy wearing red!

Missy sure looks good in her under wear. :lol: :lol: Won't be to long until she's home.

Nice job :!: Is that your Dad's Cub in the background? And the H?

There are two tractors in the "wings": One is a '45 B Farmall and the other is Dad's '48 FCUB, Bingo. Weather permitting, both Missy and Bingo will get sprayed with 2150 this weekend. 8) The B will get painted in a few weeks. I had hoped to have all three ready at the same time but, the B needs some PTO work and the grill is getting some much needed attention from a friend of mine that works for a local body shop. :D

You are doing a great job. I like seeing the progress pictures. Thanks.

Will you use DuPont acrylic enamel?

Are you going to spray yourself?

Keep up the good work.

John...are you still using HP Photo? Any alternatives that work yet?

I will use IH 2150 red thinned with a little hardener added. The rear rims will be sprayed with IH silver. John has requested that the radiator, fan shroud, generator, and starter be painted black. I have already painted the manifold and pipe with IH high-temp black.

Sure looks good John. I will be comming through Mo soon and I could bring Missy back to Az with me for awhile.

MIcheal, you're all heart. I think you've been spending too much time around Bigdog. If you come through my part of the state (80 miles south of St. Louis) let me know, maybe we can get together.

Mltiema, I haven't been looking for another site, I'm just using the space provided by my ISP. I may get ambitous someday and fix up a web page, but that sure seems like a lot of work for a lazy man like me. I've heard some good things about, but never tried them.

Missy is really beginning to look good! Nice drawers!


You and your Dad are doing a bang up job... takes special people to be special neighbours and you are in that select group..


It don't take hardly nothin to post pics to your ISP and then build a web page around it.

Go to the Cub Server main page - right click on the page then left click on view source code. Just read that for a bit - in fact print it out and then compare with the finished page. It will come real quick. Ifn a dummy like me can do it, anybody can :!: :idea: :wink: :) Also look at Dennis's BBS Code help file - same principle. Also, if you can post a pic on this forum, you can build a web page!

Remember a link is <a href="xyz"> statement and use the close tag </a>, an image is <img src="xyz.jpg> statement and use the close tag </img>

everything else if really easy. Just make sure your statement in "'s is perfectly correct and you are off to the races.
