After reading through the antique horn thread I decided to go shopping. FOUND ONE! And it even works even :) has the rare to find original bottom clamp too. Paint was crap though. SO. I whipped out my Dremel and a sanding flapper wheel and stripped it all down. What I couldnt reach I hit with some emory cloth. While taking the old paint off I discovered that at one time it was painted red! Thought about it for a while and and then got on said Pope and headed to ACE hardware. Got what is esentially Massey Ferguson red. After hosing it down with brake cleaner and letting it dry I gave it the business. Came out good but Im not convinced its gonna stay red. I'll see if it grows on me. It may stand out too much.

Now the second one is cool but too early to put a bid in on it.
I just bought a 1948 Persons seat the other day at our local antique Barn for $25.oo and have been working on it for the last few days, they have a lot of stuff.
