I had to do a trial fit of the remaining tinware as none of it was original to this tractor and all of the original was swapped over with the tractor these parts came from. Since these pictures I have finished painting all the parts and once all the electrics are done, checked and working I will then do the final assembly.
I have straightened up the crooked gauges now as well.

Thank you Gard. We actually got the job finished yesterday afternoon so we went for a quick road trip to our local Pub, not for a drink, but a photo shoot. When David first came to live with us we took a photo of him down there and then at the old Govenment Wharf used back in the early 1900's. I want to go back again and position him in a better position so I can compare one to the other.
He ran lovely but I still have a slight issue with rust sediment inside the tank/s so I will be working on them tomorrow and get him ready for our Clubs big Rally at the end of this week, the Rusty Iron Rally at Macksville NSW. They have a FaceAche page if your into that if you want to have a sticky beak, plus a very average website unless they have done something about it recently.
Tomorrow I will put some pics up that we took yesterday.

Thank you for your comments, it is a good feeling to finally have him done and today I had to put a new hardwood floor in the carry all and now that is done. Here is a pic of him on the front lawn and down in the car park of the local pub.
