Golden Jubilee Update - ALMOST finished!

The tractor project is looking great. Everything is going together pretty well. I've still got to figure out the wiring harness, and still have to order a few more parts. Enjoy the pictures.

Jubilee Paint Done

All the red and gray is finished! The Gray paint especially turned out beautiful because it is automotive paint, not just oil based paint like you'd get at tractor supply stores. Now just need to paint the seat black, do a little touching up here and there, and put it all back together with a new wiring harness, all new electronics, gauges, tune up kit, fuel system, emblems, and much more.

One of the problems I ran into is that the radiator doesn't seem to be the original, and it won't fit the restored fan shroud I purchased online.

First Fairmont Speed Parts Obtained

Last week I ordered some new parts for the F-Bomb. They came from UPR. I got their chrome-moly K-Member kit which comes with the tubular k-member, the tubular upper a-arms, and the adjustable coilovers. Also got the billet aluminum caster camber plates (not pictured) and the ultimate bump steer kit (not pictured). The parts came in a few days ago and I'm really happy with them. They are very good quality. They're like a work of art. Great craftsmanship on these parts.
