My Bit of Rex '48 Bling

Postby PVF1799 » Wed Aug 14, 2013 5:17 pm

I got home from NJ to find I had a box to open - always a good thing - but I was really excited to receive this. This is my little bit of Cub Flare, my break from traditional.

That would look good tucked under the left fender where no one could see it. :arrow:

I could be wrong but I'm guessing you don't approve.

It doesn't matter what I think. It's your tractor. I do prefer the stock look.

It's like those who say "It's your tractor, paint it whatever color you want". I think it will show very well with that fresh, shiny paint you will have on the Cub. Can't wait to see it in the completed form.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

That shine is almost as bright as the paint job. Looking forward to seeing Rex in October.

Looks good, but I am waiting to see you wiping it off every time it blows sooty water out when starting.

I like it a lot! I can't wait to see pictures of that completed tractor in action!! Your dad at the wheel, sun glasses on to cut down the glare from that fresh paint and new exhaust; possibly wearing a little bling of his own, a new red IH hat perhaps? :lol: You are doing an excellent job! Can not wait to see it completed! :D
