Nice tractors, my dad was given a wheel horse charger 10 with a mower deck for free I'm tearing it down and replacing all the engine gaskets and painting it up real nice.

Whats the paint code on the cans that you used on the SS14?  That's really close to the original color.I keep looking at paint and every one I've looked at was to Blue or to Green.

Rustoleum 7219-830 Verde Green  

 

Spray paint. Unique hammered finish. No primer needed. Hides surface imperfections. Apply directly over rust.

 

 

lol Just what i need something that will cover rust.I'll end up sanding and priming all of the big parts so rust doesn't bleed through.I might even wet sand and use a nice Crystal clear coat paint over it.I got a couple cans of Krylon Crystal Clear the other day to fix the trunk lid on the car.It turned out really good.I'll have to try a couple test spots once I get paint for my SS14.

 

 

Had to warm up the trunk lid a bit 1st then put a tac coat and let it set a few minutes then I hit it with 2 pretty heavy coats.Didn't have to do any finish work to it.It leveled out and looks like glass.I think the trick to a good clear coat is a nice warm surface.
