I am wanting to finish the front grill up. My head light trim rings are chrome. They will need to be redone. What are some recommendations. I would like to get them redone but I heard chrome plating is getting expensive

I am getting ready to lay some paint on the frame this week. Since I am trying to do a good job, Does any one out there rebuild the Jacobsens transmissions?

yes I have, becarefull there 2 Fords blues a lighter one for the earlier Fords and a darker one for the later Fords, I think the break off is the open sides are lighter and the closed sides are the darker. TSC carries both

I have a hvlp so I will go that route. Once the frame is painted it's easier to get motivated. Sand, paint install part.

Picked up the paint this morning. Raining hard outside so no spraying for a few days.

Question. Would you guys paint the frame and then install the clutch and implement lift? Or install those and then paint. I am thinking the paint will prevent me from sliding them on?

Personally, I would paint then try to slide on and touch up areas when you get it on. But if you want to do it a way that would work for sure paint after you put on.

I'd install anything that goes through the bushings (etc.) then paint. You can always tape off what you don't want paint on!

I found that Tremclad Royal Blue was a nearly exact match for my open side 145. I matched it to unexposed parts and it was too close for my old eyes. Careful prep and application can yield a pretty good paint job.
