Next to install, "new" bib, replacing rusted out original. Note that this is from an older model, with early-style headlight modules. Some cutting, drilling and rivet-nuts in order to accept '73 and later headlight assemblies:

Damn - I have so many rattles I don't even know where they're coming from...I think I'd have a better chance identifying the parts that don't rattle...

I actually have mine pretty rattle free, there are a few squeaks from the drivers side door I can't track down and some racket from the rear hatch area I haven't been able to pinpoint. Aside from that it's the roar of the mighty 2F and 33's that is deafening.

Been buried in spring chores, but have fired the 40 up a couple of times for a short spin.

Meanwhile, I've been helping a buddy out in my shop, and had a great visit from my neighbor, Gordon. I love hearing his stories about growing up farming in IL, his old tractors, and learning more about the history or our small town in western MA. Honestly, I just love when he swings by when I'm in the shop and we just shoot the sh*t back and forth.
