Thanks to Jeff and Eugene, I managed to get my lever for the Snow/dirt scrape blade completed this weekend.
I'd originally thought of painting it black so that it would stand out in case I lost it in the snow. Then, after thinking, "You know, if you lose it on grass or on the pavement, that black would blend right in."
So much for all that work and labor to make this thing.
So, I again thought about the fluorescent orange scheme, and looked for paint I already had on hand. Ah, ha! I had already pretty much finished up with the Farmall Cub restoration, and found some red
paint I had left over.
I still wanted something that would stand out in case the lever was dropped, but also something that would blend in well with the current color scheme. Well, red
goes well with white (IH 935) and it goes with black, as well as with yellow. So, red it is.
Ladies and gentlemen, here's the finished angling lever:
Thanks Jeff and Eugene for all your help. This project is coming along very nicely. Now, I need to reorder my IH logo that goes on the bracket for the 42" Snow/Scrape blade.
