Lookin' good! I painted the flat stock deck or grader blade lift arm on my '64 Landlord with Duplicator dE1607 Chevy red orange engine enamel. It resists gas, has a decent shine to it, and it's pretty tough paint. It's about a perfect match to the original color. Makes it easy to touch things up down the road if you have to. Granted, a paint job out of a gun is superior to rattle cans, and eventually I'll get set up to do a proper paint job with a gun. What you are saying your paint supplies will cost seems like a whole lot of cash, but it will be durable and long lasting. I also used that same duplicolor paint on the wheel weights.

Does anyone have a picture of what the bucket seat should look like? I'm starting to get the materials so the local upholsterer can redo the seat. So far i've got the pleather (fake leather) at joann fabrics. It was $14 for 2 yards. The left over pleather will used on another tractor. 

___________

I also got some paint. I had stopped down at tractor supply to get a new belt for my other tractor and thought it would be good to see what they had for paint. They had a really close match to the original red / orange paint. It might be a little darker than OEM. I also got primer but wasn't able to find the cream white. Ill go to another tractor supply.

took a fine wire brush wheel to the hydropump. Found what looks like cracks or some sort of fractures. Could this just possibly be a casting fault from the factory?

The delco remy push start button is in bad shape. According to the delco remy website,it is obsolete. What can I get for an alternative push button? My budget is $50. I would like to also find a two prong keyswitch. There's a toggle switch currently instead.

Painting has started but ran into a minor set back. It appears the matte black paint isn't actually what the cap shows. The paint dried to be very light & almost a gray. Why did I continue painting? Not sure, was hoping it would get darker.

I need to stop procrastinating and type out a spreadsheet of all the parts and misc items bought for the tractor. Maybe this weekend ill get it done.

EDIT:

The matte black paint is supposed to look like this.

   Very nice, that paint has a heck of a shine.  you did wind up using the tsc paint ?  the only thing I can say about that paint is it fades really fast in the sun, I painted my daughters pedal tractor with it a few years back and over the course of two summers the paint on the hood faded to almost grey.  held up really well and resisted chipping and scratching good. 

    Keep up the good work, and keep the pics coming.

yea I can't believe how shiny the paint is. I did end up using the TSC Majic Paint with Majic Catalyst Hardener. There is 2 heavy layers of paint on all the parts. I don't plan on using this tractor much once it's done. Looks too damn good haha.

    That's the problem with restoring tractors, you do all the work and make it spectacular and then you don't want to use it.  I restored a b-10 for my father last winter and was very clear to him when I gave it back that he had to use it or I would sell it !!!!!  I cant not use my machines even if they area al restored, they were made to be used.  keep up the good.

I absolutely can't believe what just happened. I'm at a loss for words. The gentlemen that gave me the LandLord was able to find the original snowblower for the tractor. It was hiding in one of his caved in barns. He told my grandfather and I to come pick it up.

The snowblower is complete and in very good shape. As far as we can tell, it only needs new belts and 1 new bearing that goes on the drive pulley.

current progress teaser. First time being out in the sun. I wanted to let the paint bake for a bit. Tractor supply had wheelbarrow tires on sale ($15 each) so I got two to replace the front wheels for the time being. The other tires needed new bearings and tires (rubber) but it's a little pricey.
