Hello all, new member here

Postby puddlejumper » Tue Sep 21, 2021 7:15 pm

Hello all.

Joined some time ago and been lurking but haven't introduced myself. Long time collector of farm equipment. I recently purchased most of 3 cubs, and began putting together 2 good ones from the 3. My wife became interested and now one of the cubs is hers. We are currently working -together- on her first restoration. Hopefully not her last.

I am an all breeds lover, with a lean toward the green side but my wife has turned out to be red through and through!

I would like to hear some advice on the best paint to use. Spray bomb? Brush? 2 part? Epoxy?

Thanks for letting me join your forum. In the months I have been a member this forum has been a tremendous help. Especially with removing platforms, I have removed 2 of the 3 platforms, with one to go. I agree it isn't fun, but using the techniques I learned about here it was easier than I expected. And they were rusted BAD.

I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.

Dave, welcome to the forum. My only comment on paint would be that if you want to use a hardener you must have supplied air. Otherwise, all the choices you listed are viable.
