Go with the hot-rod look. Just don't make it look better than mine :-)

That would be a hard thing to do Big Al. Your tractor is beautiful man

Very cool. When it comes to the grill are you just priming/painting over the cast as is.. or are you doing some light filler to give it a glassy look?

I think panzer used a little filler maybe they just wiped it on. but there was something to make it smooth. I painted one with out making it smooth and didn't like it.

attachicon.gifgauge.jpg I found a NOS gauge for the restore

What gauge is that? The pic is so small I can't make it out.

 

Paint is looking good.
