It will be nice to have the wheels done and over with. Then it's on to the fun stuff.

2 more front wheels cleaned up. Still need to sandblast to get all of the nooks and crannies. These are decent wheels that won't need any repair.

2 more wheel centers ready for a light sandblast. Pressure washed a hood and two wheel centers that were caked in grease and dirt. The hood is from our 1949 cub that was rolled over at some point in its life and tore the front corners out of it.

These 2 centers are the originals from the '47 cub. One needs some welding to get it fixed up.

Pulled a few more parts off of the Cub and started paint removal with a wire wheel. The wires are getting mighty short, so I need to pick up a couple more wire wheels. I ran one fender through the e-tank and got it cleaned up. It will need some metal relaced where its rusted out.

Another fender cleaned up. This one will need some small dents ironed out but is not in too bad of shape.

Dipped the front end of the hood into the E-tank overnight. This is the original hood that came with the '47 tractor. I started on the fuel tank end with some stripping discs and just need to finish it up. The fuel tank has some rust in it so I need to decide on which method to use to clean it out and whether to put some tank liner in it.

Just a small part cleaned up today. Ran the dash/tank support through the E-tank and gave it a quick wire brush.

Looking good!

If I may suggest: Get those cracks welded up on the base of your hood and fuel tank support. Skim coat the pin holes with JB Weld.

It has cracks on both sides and on the flat base part. I will probably weld in a new piece of metal on the bottom and fix the crack and rust through in one step.

"Skim coat the pinholes with JB Weld"?

First time I've heard of that. Is JB Weld better than body filler (Bondo)? I have some pinhole areas to be dealt with...

Yes it is. Body filler is not impervious to moisture and exposure on the back side of the panel will cause eventual failure. Not so with JB Weld.
