Nice bright green.  We have a few of the large Duetz-Allis farm tractors around here and each one is a little different shade of green.  Two have the same owner, my one neighbor.

Both fenders on and looks pretty nice. Now to get hood and sides done, hmmm! Not sure if I'm gonna try to tape off the decals or find new? Haven't seen if any out there yet. They are not greatest shape, would be best to remove and find new.

Was suggested to get this tape to hold down foot pads on tractor. Not cheap, seems to grab good. Is double sided, clear tape. Need to buy more, took most of package for just one side. Ever use it?

Green hood has one of screens missing on top. Have old Orange hood to get some from. BUT, darn things are spotwelded in. Tiny welds, but still a weld. Not sure if I can cut with my grinder or use die grinder, or a Dremel. Not sure how to put it BACK in the hood once I get them out of other. Bolts will show, and maybe look dumb, only on one side. Suggestions?

You just need to tack weld them back in like they are now.

I'd go to a local body shop and ask them to show you or give the name of the 2 part stuff they use to glue on new body panels. No panels these days are welded on, it's all done with the 2 part glues. Maybe if you took the hood with you they'd even put a few dabs around where the screen piece goes for you & you can just push it in place until the stuff dries, once its set up, it's on there for life for the most part. Offer them a few bucks to help you out. At least you don't have to worry about heat marks or burnt paint on the shown side of the hood. Maybe even go to the body shop first before you paint it up to see if theyll do that for you when you get it done. Good luck with it.

Nice job finessing that off there. Paint it up nice now & i think 6 or so dabs of that stuff strategically placed to push that screen into and it'll be as good as new.

Like the green, easy to tack back on with mig before it gets hot and distorts anything . Looks like they came out real nice 

I use contact cement to hold my rubber pads down on the units I've worked on .It has held up well even after getting wet.

Cannot wait to see the whole tractor repainted.
