Was a quick job and I couldn't find the original tan color so figured I would modernize it a bit with case backhoe color and stickers. Know a guy that works for case so it was all free other then my labor. What do you guys think?

Does shine now! May be the light in the pics, but the orange has a pink tint to it.

Boy, it sure doesn't look like a 60 tractor anymore, turned out all right.
If you want, You can always put it back to OEM when time, inclination, and cash allow... but for now, the refurb stuff was at the right price and the labor was a labor of love.
Thanks for sharing!

You really need the floor space so just sent it on down to me and I'll hold it for you. Tractor looks great and there is nothing wrong with the job or looks you did. It now has another life to go.

Job, OK, not sure I like that color. IF he was an IH/Case guy, should have had easy access to the right color. My local dealer has that, spray cans or bulk.  Something like Desert Sand or close. My vote's for the lighter color.......this from a Guy changing to odd colors all the time on my stuff...heee!

It looks fine for a tractor, a tractor is a tool, if it works as well yellow as tan, so be it. I may get a little excited about a proper color or gloss on one of my classic cars, but a work tractor...

The Case construction yellow isn't bad on there.  I think the color looks good enough for a work tractor.  Desert Sunset is still available thru any good Case IH ag dealer though.  As a guy into both IH and Case tractors the decals are what I am not fond of.  Correct decals can be had thru Maple Hunter Decals for your tractor.  Having said that you've given it a new lease on life for a few more years and it's not in a scrap yard somewhere.

I think it looks nice, and you can't complain about the price.
