Bob, What a gorgeous tractor! You've done some outstanding work with the paint. That chrome muffler sure sets it off along with the aluminum(?) air intake pipe. Really - it looks great! ...and you're right - a great bunch of guys here! Congrats on a job well done! :coffee:

Got to ask for the story on the hood.
Is that a clear coat? Laquer? Heated? Pro painted?

Best I've seen.

To Dell...thanks firstly...yes, it's 2 step clearcoat, wet sanded and buffed.....I did all the work myself....the kids at the local trade school did the body work on the hood for me....minimal cost....the latest lettering that I got was a real surprise. I thought they were a mylar 'bumper sticker' like application...it turned out to be a transfer application....the lettering was applied to a wax like backing...when applied, the leters are all individual....almost like hand painted quality...very pleased.

Anybody notice the VW in the background has the same red on it??? That's right, Minnie was painted with 2009 VW Beetle Salsa Red....
