Hello ya’ll. I have not posted much on here but read a bit now and then. I know this question has been asked a million times, but I guess I am looking for some direct answers without reading a bunch of back posts.
I have a 47 circle cub I am wanting to repaint. Trying to do it myself. Not going for a show stopper but kind of for “nice”, or “not bad at tall”
I am wondering on what kind of paint to use? I am leaning towards the CaseIH dealer paint with hardner. Opinions?
What primer can I use? I am thinking rattle can so I can paint as I clean various parts. Will rustoleum primer work and be compatible with the case paint? The case primer says it need to be clean bare metal and rustoleum says it can be on cleaned rusty metal.
I have a sand blast cabinet and will clean smaller parts sand won’t hurt, but the motor and tranny I will probably wire off real good so to say it will be 100 percent clean probably won’t happen. Especially in pitted areas one won’t get the bottom of the pits 100%.
Do I need to clean the metal before priming with something? A clean cloth dampened with paint thinner?
Also some questions on colors.
For rear rims? I would like to re-galvanize them but that might be a future project.
Not for this cub but the IH white? On say a 56 grill or some implement rims etc., is it a white white, or more of a creamy white, I have not looked yet but does Case still sell this?
And on implements? The blue? What shade is this? Have seen guys use a lighter shade of blue and others use a darker more navy shade. I can see the remnants on some of my implements and it looks pretty dark but if you scratch around on it, it looks lighter. And does Case still have this?
Any advise would be very appreciated. I have faint hopes of getting this together for Red Power in Ohio this year. I know tall order.
I know this is a long list but thanks in advance.
P.S. On a side note does anyone happen to have a pair of 6” rear rims, somewhere near Illinois?
