The original brown paint mentioned in post #12 reminds me of a Chrysler paint colour that was on a 69 Monaco I had many years ago - when it was shined up it almost looked as good as some of the pearls that are on todays cars - I believe the code was T7  - the chip on this page does not do the colour justice.   http://paintref.com/...el=Chrysler=

Not sure if you meant to do this or not but the rims should be white if your going for an original looking tractor......

  In the pic that you posted I noticed that the hood cut out for the muffler is different than mine. Do you know why it is that way?

The cutout on yours is correct for these models.

The one in the pic is more of an artist rendition, almost looks like the 63' husky 800 hood cutout.

 

 

The white is an off white. Not sure what kind of paint your using but if its just rustoleum canvas white is close to the original.

Once again that is going to be one pretty machine. You do some very nice work. I like the off white color for the rims.

 It is called a BOB table and it does go up or down with air pressure. Rated to lift 1500 lbs. I think they are made for motorcycles because there is a panel in the rear that comes to  remove the rear wheel.

I believe you are correct on the motorcycle table. I  know a guy who has one like that he is a motorcycle mechanic.

Progress is being made, decals have been ordered and knobs and steering wheel to do yet. The seat is the best I could come up with at this time.

That is beautiful. I can not believe how nice the hood looks. Have a look at the original pictures you posted of the hood with the gaping holes in it where the headlights were attached. As usual you do some very fine work. Can't wait to see it with the decals on it.
