I think the good stuff from Traxtor Supply is cheaper in the long run then rattle cans. I ahve painted 2 hood and grilles,12 wheels, 3 point hit, and misc other stuff with less then 1/2 a qt can of paint.How many rattle cans woukd it take to paint all that? I figure it had cost $15.00 max as I have enough paint and harder left to due it all again.

Those wheels look good. Get your wife to give you a couple of "Honeydoes" and the time to let them harden will pass faster.

The Honey Does are automatic, arn'they?

Since I now have a decent spray gun and compressor, I will look into using better paint on the next project. It would be nice if I had GT's that were the same color, but such is life!

I've yet to use a decent paint as well. I'm planning on trying it on my mf8 when I do the red stuff.

I know about having all the tractors the same color,but a quart of paint at Tractor Supply is about $12.50 here about the price of 2 rattle cans. All of my tractors are different colors except I use tha Ford white on the hoods and wheels, not a perfect match on some of them,but the blues,reds,& blacks make them look ok. Before I bought the first blue Ford my buddies made fun of me for painting everything red.

I got the wheels painyed to match the tractor, will let them dry a couple of days before I put them on hrere are some pictures. It is hard to wait, but I may want to take them off again someday.

Quick question...... Are the centers of your wheels in the center of the rim? The reason I ask is from the way it looks to me when you mount them on your tractor if you are going to have the valve stem out then one of the bar tires are going to be backwards. Might want to check that out to see........... KJD

I do have the valve stems in, but the way the tires are mounted both tires are going the right way and if I put the valve stems out I would just switch sides on the tractor. I had to stop and figure that out when I had the mounted myself.
