Hey Chris, can you please get me the Nason paint code/number that you painted your tractor. My dad and I are currently doing a nut/bolt restoration on a T-75. We've had everything sand blasted, filled, blocked and primed. Everything is ready to go, we're just trying to decide on color and we love the color of your tractor. We also prefer to use Nason, so it works out perfectly for us!

Also, did you paint your wheels with a gun or rattle can? We've been thinking of going with a VERY slightly off-white color, but I'm starting to think pure white looks best. Can you give me the info on what color you used for your wheels as well?

 

Thanks!

Great, i sprayed the wheels with a gun.the teal paint code is gs618, and the white is Ls006. you will love the paint,They sell reducer but its very thin you wont need it. just the harder.  I would like to see pics when you do it. good luck keep us posted.

My dad doesn't understand what you mean by the paint not needing reduced. You were able to get the Nason to shoot through the gun, right out of the can (with hardener of course)? My dad says he'll have to reduce it, or it'll never shoot out the gun. He said something like 8 parts paint/ 2 parts reducer/ 1 part hardener. Do you not go by these measurements. Also, do you use a gun big enough to spray a car, or do you use a smaller spray gun? We have a large gun we'll do the hood, frame, fenders etc etc with, then a little gun for stuff like steering shaft, wheels, seat etc etc.

 

Looks like we'll be mixing paint up tomorrow! I'll try to start a Restoration thread of our T-75. We just drove 700 miles roundtrip to pick up another T-75, and we're currently trying to get it running. I'm pretty good with a wrench, but this has me stumped (even though they're SO simple!). In all, we have 8 John Deere's. We have seven Round Fender 110's, one Round Fender 112, two Panzer T-75's and I have a Cub Cadet 102 that I'm building as a puller that'll have John Deere 110 Round Fender body pieces on it. Oh, can't forget our one 1960's Wheel Horse. Yeah, it's safe to say the GT bug has hit us HARD! We have integral hitches on almost every 110, snow blower, snow blade, couple plows, a Brinly Planter and some other goodies. But enough rambling about me. I'll make my own thread for that! lol

 

I really am impressed with your tractor though. It's the best build I have seen to date on one. We're doing ours almost exactly like you are. Every single nut and bolt will have been touched and cleaned up. Where we might be going a bit different, is we're going with all Stainless Steel hardware throughout. There are so "few" bolts (when compared to say a JD 110), that it'll be easy to justify the cost!

 

Do you have anymore updated pictures of your Panzer? Did you have the motor rebuilt, or perhaps you did it yourself? Also, did you replace the rear axle gaskets behind the brake drum mounting plates?

I started to reduce it and it was to thin. It sprayed on great. I used a small gun on all the parts but the nuts and bolts. I used a air brush because i didnt want to much paint on them. metal eched primed and the air brush. I used a jam gun to spray everthing.I have a few tractors that are finshed. The wheel horse puller that i put up for tractor of the mouth. cub cadet pullers 1535 and a 800.Im working on 2 rj 58 wheelhorses. a cub cadet 100 puller and t75. 2012-10-20154627.jpg
