Very VERY nice job on the resto, what color brown did you use? I only use spray paints cause I have no sprayer and wouldnt know how to operate one so if there is a spray available in that color that would be great for me lol....Brad

I bought the paint in quarts, and when I sprayed it, I used a valspar hardner. It really does work, makes the paint much harder, dry faster and gives a high gloss. I'm a cabinet maker and I painted my parts at work using there equipment and booth.

You did a great job on the restoration, just for future reference so pictures don't get lost again you should upload them through the site with the image attachment feature. You also don't have to worry about resizing them as the site takes care of that for you. :D

I used Valspar paint for the wheels. The restoration series paint is thinner and sprays much nicer. I cant remember if I used Ford red or Massey Ferguson red.

Our beagle, Howie, was supervising some work on the 1050 earlier today. He was thrilled when I pulled out my phone to take a picture. Here's the proof.
