I have a question for those familiar with a Planet Junior BP-1.  This is the victim:

I realize that it was originally painted green.  I'd be curious to know what color green it should be, since I am finding green traces under the black paint, and that seems to match what they would have been originally.  Is it an olive green?  I know it isn't military olive, but I'm thinking it reminds me of canned {green} olives. 

 

If anyone has some original brochures in technicolor printing, I'd be curious to know how the wheels were painted, too.

I doubt he has a clue! :smilewink:  The PJr was an olive green color but I've seen some differences in color. I posted a couple pictures in this thread here of a nice original tractor and planter. http://gardentractor...+jr#entry449969

It was olive green with red wheels.

I guess I'll try to restore the first one attempted, then.

 

Thanks for the link, Doug.  I knew you'd know something!
