Making Progress on Ugly

Postby Tezell » Mon Oct 28, 2013 6:10 pm

Got her degreased,pressure washed stripped,sanded and degreased again.

I did take the tires and had them removed from the rims today, then sanded primed and painted them. Tomorrow I will have them remounted.

Got to love that Southern weather! Getting too cold out up here to do such things.

Looking good, Tim. What did you use on the rear rims?

Mr. Roy,

I rattled canned them with Iron Gard International Silver.

I sprayed the primer and will be spraying the tractor and the hood with my buddys low pressure gun.

You gotta it going good. Won't be old ugly anymore. That is going to be a good looking machine.

Yep, looks like Ugly is in the middle of a complete transformation. I can hardly wait to see it when you get finished. There are few things as satisfying as seeing a "Brand New" used Cub. Hopefully I can do the same with my "Bonnie Lou" one of these days. Keep up the good work, Papa!

Dave,

I purchased the primer at Tractor Supply when they discontinued the Valspar paints. It is an oil based oxy red primer. It is some thick stuff I only used about a pint of actually primer after I thinned in down.

Harold I think the rain is moving in on Friday. Hopefully I will have it back under the shed by then.

Thanks fellows for all the comments.
