Postby schmibm » Mon Jun 11, 2007 11:04 pm

By the way, here is my 55 Lo Boy after the repaint. Ready for Red Power now.... Just gotta find the stainless emblems. Maybe there. Maybe have to buy them from Steiner.

NICE! 8) 8) 8)
I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Heh schmibm, what color is that... Red ? :lol: :lol:

Looks fantrastic. You have to get some stainless on her though asap. Have you checked with Ralph on your emblems ?

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.
