Covington 2 Row Planter Restoration

Restoring an old Covington 2 Row Planter. Had been sitting in a barn for the last 20 or so years. Anyone have any ideas as to the age of this unit. Has the wooden sides on the fertilize hoppers. Everything is there and in pretty good shape. Plan on taking everything apart, sand blasting and painting. Any suggestions or ideas are welcomed.

Not yet, just finishing up one of the planter units. Have one more to go. Cultivator is complete.

I haven't really kept up with the hours, but quite a few. I used to build custom motorcycles back in the 70's and have really enjoyed doing the frame up thing. I've gotten to the age where I enjoy riding my tractors as much as my bike.
