Where did you find the rustoleum wheel silver.I don't recall ever seeing any rustoleum silver before. Can you post a picture of the can?
Oh, my bad. It's Dupli-color.
I used Rustoleum. I don't have good luck with Duplicolor. Here's the Rustoleum Wheel Silver from Lowe's. It's a perfect MF match!
Really enjoying your project & your perfectionist. I hate over spray such a lazy way of painting. I have white over spray on the seat vinyl of my Bolens, nothing is breaking it diwn. When I done my Mf12 still in progress lol I used the red spot putty that Bondo makes for the pitting that show'd up after primer. It goes on smooth, dries fast & sands very quickly.
Thank you for the kind words! I think I'm going a bit overboard with it, but I want it to look great. Overspray on trim and other pieces is the lazy hack job way of doing things and I don't want anything I own to look like that......I want all my things to look nice and original with some updates here and there, but tastefully done. I'm going to try some of that red Bondo glazing putty on the pits on my front wheels and see if I can get the few on there filled in.
I have some big updates on my project, but I was so busy, and I just got back from picking up some things in PA that I didn't even have a chance to take pictures, but I will tomorrow. I got my parts back from my sandblaster and I couldn't believe how inexpensive and such high quality work. The MF641 came back nearly perfect and I've been painting it and the 1855 parts red yesterday. I got the running boards and side panels done and they came out great. I will be wet sanding them and clear coating them after they've had some dry time. The only bad thing is that the pits were so bad on the rear fender panel, they came right through the metal and it looks like Swiss Cheese in certain areas, but luckily I have a very nice, used fender panel from a 1655 lined up. This week, I'll get some more painting done on the cart, wheel weights, and maybe even the hood if I get to it. Next will be the paint on the frame, steering tower, 3 point hitch, and axles.
