Fixin' BOB

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Fixin' BOB

Postby Barnyard » Tue Jul 27, 2021 11:12 am

After replacing the most of the wood on the south wall of my old shop last year I had a lot of decent old siding that I had removed. The other day I figured I would recycle some of that old lumber and fix a bad spot on BOB (not everything goes on the bon fire). It isn't an exact match, but BOB is a patch work of different wood.

There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Bill, Once you paint the whole barn red, no one will see the difference. :D

I wonder if Mail Pouch Tobacco will still paint your barn for free?

Is there a paint worth a dam?

Something that will not crack and split, good for 20+ years?

I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.

White wash it.
Or put some red dye in it and red wash it.
