Well today will be the day,going to near 70 degrees,won't be to hard to get the garage up to temperature,will post some more pics later,with the tractor being 50 years old,I'm sure the original paint was faded out pretty good,under the seat pan was about the best paint,the match sure looked pretty good,there is a lot more metallic in it than what you would think,its very fine but there

The metallic faded like the Ride-a-matic paint from the ones I seen which is why we never originally thought the paint had metallic in it.

Ok, got some paint work done today, I'm very happy with it,a little dust in it in a couple places,but not bad for not being in a paint booth,these pics aren't the best,will get better ones when I can ull it outside,the color match is real good

That's just an amazing color. Too bad Bolens did not keep using it through the 1250's. Nice job, Rick!
