Is it Kenny? I didn't notice I had about 7 posts in this thread alone and this is only the 15th post in the entire thread LOL.

I call the tractor body parts sheet metal, then the engine pieces are shrouds.

Since I don't have 'inside' space to paint, I'll have to wait for the weather to warm enough to start. There are several things I want to fix as I go, including an engine rebuild. Hopefully just new rings and valve job. RH cylinder (looking from the back) doesn't fire all the time, especially at idle. May look into raising the fender pan some for tire chain clearance. A pair of 18 X 8.50 X 8 on the front would give it good stance.

Hmm, you're going to have tough competition Kenny, If I get mine done in time. Mine will be getting 18x6.50-8's up front and 26x10.50-12's out back, so I can't wait to see what side you put out back Kenny. Remember, you have to bring that back end up some lol.

Oh, I didn't really notice those tires were oversize that much. Did you fill them, or just going with wheel weights?

I had to tube them. I'll have to get an adapter to fill them. I have some small weights I made a long time ago to go on. Need to weight them again, forgot how much they were.

Mine doesn't weigh enough yet, when I put the new tires on I will fill them (14 gallons WW fluid) in addition to the current 63 pound each wheel weights. I should end up about 120 pounds per wheel. Hopefully that will be enough weight to keep it moving under all conditions. :D

I found a dark red for the hood band. Rustoleum Regal Red. Goes well with the gray.

And I can paint better than I can free hand a mouse. Not much, but better.:bigrofl:
