Here's some pics of the 66 ford 100. Had a lot of help from my 2 boys Kevin and William. Not original colors but we like it. We used ford blue and red from TSC. The racing stripes were the kids idea. Still need a PTO cover and battery cover. But I have a couple of leads for the parts.

Very nice Ford!
I'm sure the manufacturer would have no problems with those colors.

Looks good! I like your color choosings! A lot of times a change from factory colors is a good thing. IMO.

Great looking Ford. The red rims really stand out. You and the boys did a great job.

Missing battery covers are a common problem with those types. Good luck finding one.

That's a nice looking Ford.One thing about non stock colors,if you ever want to put it back to original,It's just paint.

Thanks for the comments....I balanced the ideas of a 9 year old (William) and a 16 year old (kevin) to restore the ford with their help. She idles like a Harley. Our next plan is to find a PTO and attach a 42 inch deck to it. Put it to work mowing so we can take the 1970 super chief 1200 off line for a while and paint it up.
