No offense to you, but I'm just curious as to why you painted the tractor those colors? :confuse:

I don't really know why something jsut made me think that it would look good. Maybe becasue I have a couple farmalls. I think it will look better when I finally get the decals and put them on.

are you putting Farmall Decals or bolens?

Looks like it might be the right color, he just snapped the pic outside under one of those yellow "anti-bug" lights! High Pressure Sodium lights give off that yellow cast as well. At any rate, a poor choice of lighting options for a photo op!

I believe that is a dirty Cub Cadet with a picture taken from a bad camera and poor lighting.

Farmerall, I think your Bolens 850 is fine. While it may not be true to the original colors, the tractor is being cared for by somebody that wants to make it better.Just keep us updated please.
And Doug, your Massey deserves to have its own original colors.You did a very unusual transformation and the tractor should have its own color scheme to let folks know. Good work.
Yes it is good to have the original colors on the restorations, but I would sooner see a tractor saved with the owner's choice of color than know that it may have gone to the scrap pile. Just my thoughts.
