I started on my t65 yesterday. Unfortunately, I do not own my own home, so space is limited, and no 220v in the garage. That means Small compressor, and no sand blaster, so I am stuck refinishing it the hard way. (thank God my arc welder has an engine)
I was out in the driveway after work yesterday enjoying my favorite adult beverage, and thought to see how the Aircraft paint stripper would work on a fender, and the next thing ya know, I am painting it! Then I stripped the front grill. I know, I know, I should have torn the tractor down first, but one thing led to another, and well it is what it is. I plan on getting more done this weekend, and will post more pics along the way. I will not be doing a full blown resto, but just a repaint as space, and other constraints bottleneck that idea down to a BIG fat zero.
The paint I chose was strictly off of memory, and seems close nuff for me ( second pic shows a test on grill in front of driven pulley). Obviously it won't be a show stopper, but it will certainly look better that it did. Anyway, I am not certain when this will be completely done, but plan to get alot done today, so check back for more photos along the way, and thank you all for tagging along!!!!! Enjoy. Now, off to the car-wash!!!!
Oh yea, that is a new tie-rod end thanks to our friends @ Fastenal!!!!
