About Our
Restorations,
Pricing and
Quotes policy:
We keep our
price structure
simple, labor plus
parts & material.  
In most cases we
will not bid a job,
however, we will
offer the best
estimate we can
but it will only be
an estimate.

When you give a
firm bid for doing
any type of repair
or service on this
type of
equipment, you
must have a built
in cushion to
cover any
unexpected
problems that
might arise.  If no
problems arise,
the bidder comes
out ahead and
the customer
loses, however, if
major problems
arise the bidder
loses. Our policy
is made to be fair
for both parties
concerned.
After a project
has been started
and if any
unexpected major
problems should
arise, the
customer is
always notified
before work
continues. We do
our best to keep
our customers
informed.  When
we go to settle an
account, we do
not like
unexpected
surprises just as
much as the
customer.

We can/will stop
the restoration
process at any
time per the
customers
request. Should
unexpected
hardships occur,
you are not
locked in to finish
to completion any
project that is
underway. We
recognize that
daily life brings
unexpected
obstacles along
the way. We can
delay or stop our
services at your
request should
you find yourself
in a difficult spot.

Primer
and
Preparation for
Paint
Keep in mind that the  
original paint on cast iron
can be your best primer
available. Don't be to
aggressive at removing it
all.
After many hours of
cleaning dirt and rust using
wire wheels, die grinders,
wire brushes,  and scrape
blades, etc...
primer begins.
The primer begins going on
the tractor. Cast iron will
begin to rust overnight.
Apply primer ASAP after
blasting, grinding, or wire
brushing.
We use a small detail gun
to apply primer. It's easier
to get into tight areas and
this is a step where you
want full and complete
coverage to fight future rust.
After a coat of primer is on,
we go back and pay more
attention to areas where
casting marks will be to
noticeable to leave behind.
