Thanks for all the kind comments guys... This one turned out the best of all my paint jobs so far.

It is IH 2150 red reduced with PPG enamel reducer and TSC hardener. I reduced it 70%. It sprayed great and laid down very smooth. Dries fast, but not too fast. I do not like the IH reducer as it seems to take too long to dry and runs alot. Chassis has two coats and the sheetmetal has three coats sanded between with 600 grit.

My camera seemed to freak out with all that red and green. That red is the most intense red I think I have ever seen. I have several red cars and other red tractors, but this is the most red of all.

My plans are to find someone selling these emblems at RPRU. Hope I can. Always seem to see them when not looking.
