Kenny I might try that , I still have some orange paint left over from the PK's paint job I could add , pretty sure it was bought at NAPA too .

 

 

 

If so see if you can find a pint/half pint can of orange or red with the same base and mix a little at a time into it to get a better yellow that you like.

I would put some of the yellow in a small container and use that to do the initial mix to make sure they are compatible.

Started removing some parts to make painting easier , bolts don't come out easy when there left out uncovered this long :wallbanging: , rear fenders (will need some repairs too ), hood , muffler (manifold was broken )   ,  still going to take off the steering wheel , I think it will be better just to cut through it and the nut which is just about rusted away . The seat will come off then I can free up track and maybe see about getting one of those flip seats instead  ,

Worked on removing the steering wheel , just cutting through with a cut-off disc on a  4 1/2"grinder . I wasn't planning on taking so much of the sheet metal off but the front piece that the grill fits was bent worse then this , still need more hammering/dolly work .

I took some of the bright yellow and added a little bit of the orange from the left over paint from the PK , I'm happy with the color , just need to see if anythings strange happens as it dries .DSCN1914.JPG This is how bright the yellow is even though it was never in the sun but is 23 years old the the inside of the grill guard DSCN1916.JPG

Oscar Meyers wants their backhoe back...



Just kidding, I like the color.
Do you think it will be ok next on the grey? Looking good in the pics, but that's not easy.

I was planning on keeping the gray , it's a lighter gray then I though it was going to be , I wonder what color the Pippin hoes where ?  Maybe they painted them to match the factory color on which it was going to be used on ?

French's Mustard paint.

 

Does look like I was dipping my hot dog in the mustard on that plate :bounce:

Started to think of all the parts that will need to be painted and I don't think I'll have enough paint from whats left in the can of yellow . I thought some of the members weren't happy with the new paint at TS , Majic brand , was it because it doesn't hold up well to the weather or other problems ? I could use it for the areas I'm painting that really won't be seen , the backside of the wheels ,under the hood including all the intake tubes ,behind the grill . Save the better paint for the outside / seen parts . Any thoughts ?

Anyone use Rustoleum Specialty Farm paint in qt. or gl. sizes ? The web site says its a brush-on which might be handy in some spots , should be able to thin it like I've done with their regular enamel in qt cans and use that to spray the undersides instead of using the TS paint
