Got into the transmission , and found some unfaded paint under the layers of grease, its funny how these tractors were pretty much all assembled when they spray painted these, you can see the chassis was together when the gold was sprayed on!

Looks like you are making good progress.  Planning on having it done by Christmas 2017?

Got the small parts all painted along with the transmission today.

Larger parts are coming back from the sandblaster in a week or so.

Very happy with the color, I would say its a 99% match.

 

I'll get the code posted later so anyone who is interested can get some mixed for themselves.

You picked a great day to paint. Not too many of those in the future forecast here! Looks great, can't wait to see it all come together.

Parts back from the blaster and primed, got the white done today, now just have to get a good weather window to get the gold coats done, this year has been rain and colder temps than normal just about every day :wallbanging:
