A/C GT for Dad

Post by DavidBarkey »

In Dec. 2021 I was given this Allis Chalmers B-112 barn find . Sat for over 15 years to that point . Got it running in the spring of 2022 . The plan was to have it fully restored for Dad's 80th this month. Summer 2022 it was completly disassembled , parts requiered list made and sand blasting started . The big parts were done first leaving the smalls to do in the cabinet blaster over winter . With all parts blasted and treated ready for paint , as soon as weather was warm enough to spray base yellow (sanding coat). Spring of 2023 I got 3/4 of the parts painted . Before I could get back to paint the last of the parts I blew the bottom disk in my back pulling vine ROOTs in the :wife: flower garden :headbash: :cuss: . Spent most of the spring and summer on the IL list again :violin: . The end of August I was able to get the last pieces painted . The end of the week looks like my best chance to get the parts in final paint . Enamal with reducer and hardener sprayed outside . Then left to harden for a few weeks before reassembling can begin.

So now I have a couple of days to get all these yellow parts sanded out ready for final paint .

Great work there Dave! The "left to harden for a few weeks" is something that makes me not want to do something like this ever. But I know the results are going to be amazing and sometimes I wish I could do that sort of think. You have my respect for your level of craftsmanship! :cheers:

I agree with you Eugen! That type of attention to detail is meticulous work beyond me. I’m always in a hurry to get the job done to get something else started.David you do amazing work and I’m in awe of your skill set. :thumbsup: :peace: Harry

Very nice looking paint job Dave. The brick floor is an attention getter. It gives me some ideas.

I can tell from here, that's going to be amazing. And what a great gift to give to someone who means so much to you.

That’s a great idea on a brick floor David. I have lots of bricks that I’ve collected for no reason other than they were free. It would be a big job but I could lay them down in my lean to behind my shop. It would make a great floor over the millings that are in there now. Thanks for the idea David. :thumbsup: :peace: Harry
