Fun With A Panzer With My Nephews And Family

I agree. The color is awful. This one will have to stay ugly until I get caught up on some other projects. Sorry guys.
I just traded my dad his Panzer for a hay wagon! Yes, I said it. My dad has more use for a hay wagon and I have a soft spot for Panzers. My brother and I are going to try and rebuild and paint the one I am getting and give it back to him for Christmas. So in reality I just gave my dad a hay wagon AND his Panzer. Maybe I should have thought this through a little more. We are going to paint his red with white rims. That's how he painted it in the 60's or 70's when he got it. I am looking for the pictures he has of it when he painted it then. I'll upload them when I find them. He had the engine rebuilt and "Blueprinted" years ago, but quit using it when the carburetor kept messing up.

The answer is a little of both, I think. I don't care what color anything is, but the green doesn't seem to fit the tractor. Even adding some of the parts yellow or white would make a huge difference.
The paint doesn't make anything run better, but the process of breaking everything down for paint does. Just replacing all the bearings, bushings, and seals as you go is a cheap way for a big improvement in your tractor.
