For some reason it is always easy to have the time to acquire new tractors but once you have them it is hard to find the time to restore or work on them unless it is absolutely necessary.

Found this on another forum, located in Guelph Ont. Canada, owner says he's had it for 20yrs and being sitting around for 16yrs still cranks over.
Thought it might be of interest.

So far, so good! Have undersides & back sides painted on most parts. Let that side dry a bit, then flip & get the main (showing side). I'll get some pics later.

Looks really good Daniel, you do good work that's for sure.
What kind if red is that?
Was hoping to get some stuff painted myself but it never got above 40deg today, a little cold to spray outside.

It's "Viper Red". I can get you the PPG code if you'd like.

Yeppers! No original Bush Hog paint code, so I picked what I thought was the closest match.

That would be code LRN wouldn't it ? I just painted something with that not too long ago,but I used Dupont.


BTW,that stuff looks good that you painted.
