Black center would hide any fluid leaks ? Orange ends would be nice touch.

Dang it man! You sure can mess up a well laid plan! I think I would rather see the leaks so I can fix them! Plus the Orange center would fit into my accent plan well!

I grabbed the gallon of paint and stirred it up to see what it looks like. Close to the Magic Kubota Orange.

Got the steering gear cleaned up!

Next was the front axle! Got it degreased and ready to clean up.

After wire wheel, I put some primer on it! Then paint!

I like the scheme Kenny. Do not post any more pictures until completion so as to keep intrigue, and next to an early jack o lantern would be neat. :D

It is your tractor, you can paint it anyway you'd like. I'm sure it will look good either way.  I like how your doing combo colors on individual parts, nice touch. :thumbs:

Just trying to add my touch to it! The rear end is an enigma to me. Not sure what will look good from that point of view!

Is this a moderator requesting a posting of a picture of a baboon's butt for color confirmation? :poke:

No! It's a Mod asking you if the AC Orange is close to your suggestion!

I remember seeing those when new! Not quite my thing, though! Think I'll stay with the Orange & Black combo!

Just wanted to let you all know that 'Alice' is a true red head! She may be a bit cantankerous at times, but I'll love her for it!

I'm down to some small items and the wheels. When Steve has a break in their hydro-dipping, he'll paint the big pieces for me! Going great as far a schedule is concerned!
