Taking the ugly out of a 738 Broadmoor

I used Rustoleum Chevy Red/Orange engine paint and Rustoleum 2X white plus Rustoleum 2X clear coat after a stiff wire brushing with an angle grinder. This red-orange is the closest match to what was under the seat pan than anything else I've tried except the red 1 orange 4 mix I used on the model L walking tractor.

While restoring/painting tractors goes against my religion, im happy to see that you atleast used the right colors. Ive seen people paint them red, and even in some extreme cases, an allis big ten orange, instead of yellow

Rustoleum Chevy Red/orange paint seems very close to the color used in the 1960's/70's simplicity machine but if you use it you must clear coat it for it to last
