i was going to completely restore my panzer 1107 with new paint and parts. But then I got the sheet metal from cookiemonster. which is scraped but is striaght and has original paint and stickers. So do u think i should put the new to me sheet metal on and keep it original or paint it. and make it niceer. Im woried if i spend money in paint someone may scratch the paint. I have 3 younger siblings running around and also my mom likes to put stuff on my tractor

I think maybe for now, run the OE painted parts to keep the youngins & Mom from setting scratchy stuff on new paint. When a few years pass & you're on your own, you'll have the project ready to complete. The years pass mighty quick, as you will find out.

Ain't that the truth, Daniel! I agree, if she looks that good, keep her stock, maybe just some touch up for looks and to keep the rust at bay
