I pulled it out of a farmers field here in Texas years back. Took several days just to get the mud out of the cracks before pulling it apart and going to work on it little by little. It was rusty but solid.

Just want to thank everyone who helped me along the way by selling parts, giving advice, and answering numerous questions. This was going to sit out on my patio with a solar cell in it so it would light up as soon as the sun went down but honestly it turned out much nicer than I anticipated so inside it shall remain.

I can't waste what i've learned so on to the next one which is another Bennett and will most likely be Shell flavored.
