Your tractors always look neat and clean. That's rustoleum fish oil primer right?

Thanks! And yes, it's Rustoleum's Rusty Metal Primer. When I originally bought the cub, it was in cosmetically poor condition. I cleaned her up, then removed as.much corrosion as possible, and sprayed her with the primer for both rust prevention, as well as giving her a uniform look.

Any part I removed for repair or reworking, (like the throttle plate, hood, grill, etc.,) did get a coat of paint. The rest was going to have to wait until she had been worked a bit, in case there were any problems. Glad now!

Also, when I sell her, the new owner can pick whichever "IH Red" paint they prefer!!

That looks great!
Here's my '48. I have a ways to go.
(Also with whitewater boats in the background) :D
Not to hijack but I thought that was cool.
