Just got back from a Seattle trip, sprayed first coat of JD green on the Fender and Seat, sure looks a million time better than the faded dirty and rusted paint job.

 

Tomorrow I will shoot a coat on the bottom, then I need to wet sand and shoot a 2nd coat on the top.

 

After that I start the hood fiber glass re work then primer and paint

Worked on the original vinyl seat today, cleaned applied 4 coats of dye, I think it turned out good since the seats birthdate is 1968

Looks good!  I wish the original seat on the 120 looked that nice.

Stuck the fender and seat pan on just for this pic, but will have to take it off for final green coat, MAN Dewey is looking good! Now you can see how he will turn out when finished.

I hope you have better luck getting those newly painted bearing caps on the front wheels than I did.  The hubcaps were a quick and easy way to hide a few flaws on the front rims. :smilewink:

REV, Very Hard to get back on, I had to sand the edge of the cap and put litho grease on the edge then beat it in with a rubber mallet

Worked yesterday and today, rebuilding the broken hood, sanded and laid first layer of fiberglass yesterday, today I sanded and laid several layers of fiberglass hopefully this will be enough so I can sand it smooth.

 

If your wondering what the RED Tape is? Its Aircraft Ordnance Tape its holding the "Call" plates that I put on top of the fiberglass, the call plates squeeze against the fiberglass and create a smooth surface when it drys.

Grandpa smashed a fence post, If you ever drove one of these you can see why, the brake and the clutch are the same pedal and this puppy gets up and goes you have to calculate your stop.

Laid 3 to 4 layers of glass fiber on the outside and filled in some of the low areas and sanded with grinding wheel, today I will vibrate sand it to smooth it out.  Looking really good Im pleased.  Noted the big cracks in the center are now history.

Man, That looks good. You can do great work with glass repair.

 

Can you tell me what you are using for the "Call" plates that the resin doesn't stick to?

I used a plastic slat from a window blind, or you can use a piece of aluminmun

Spain,

To help keep the fiberglass dust from getting into the pours of your skin, rub your arms, neck and face down with baby powder before starting. This will help reduce the itching, and will keep most of the fibers from getting into your pours. When you take a shower, make the water as hot as you can stand. This will open up your pours and help to release any fibers that might have stuck. Usually the baby powder will keep this from happening, but every now and then, some fibers still stick.

Fiberglass work looks good, and the tractor is looking nice. Great job!
