yes I know post copar panzers aside from the t65 are teal and white, my question is Did dealers or panzer repaint any of them differently before sale or at buyers request? the t75 I am redoing now was repainted red and black at some point decades ago, I was told this tractor has been sitting at least since the 80's in its current status.

Some people don't care about factory paint colors and that does not mean they are somehow going to do an inferior job. I have painted a tractor non factory colors and took it down to the metal to do it.

The best way to do it is down to bare metal, which would reinforce your theory that the guy wasn't a hack.

that's why I brought up the question the frame, fenders, seat pan were teal underneath , all the steering parts were black with zero teal underneath (all parts went to bare metal? someone must have really not liked the teal to do all that, either way its my knowledge it's going back to teal again
