I found a dark red for the hood band. Rustoleum Regal Red.


That's a pretty close match to OEM wheel horse color. At least that's what we did Kaylen's Commando 8 with and it looks OK.

Still gotta get rid of the rest of the grey... But one thing at a time.

Casey, before & after is April. I probably won't make that.
Alan, great pic of Kaylen and her horse. That's even close to the cart color.
The Charcoal Gray is a little darker than that pic, but I was afraid it would look black if I went darker. I have a little work to do on the inside of the hood. Where it sits on the dash is almost worn through. I will get a small fiber glass repair kit and fill those spots. Other than that, it is almost perfect. Few small scratches here and there. I gave Daniel a heads up for decals. Need to send him some measurements. Getting one that says Big Bertha for the front.
Hardest thing will be getting the exhaust ran so I don't have to cut the hood. Need a couple of pipes from an Onan muffler to start it with.

Nice score on the parts Kenny. It's starting to shed some of the ugly already. I had forgotten that Daniel makes decals. I'll have to get some from him for the mower deck on my mf8. That will be a really nice tractor when you're done with it. Will it displace your Ford as No. 1?

I don't think it will replace the Ford, but a very close second. They will be the main workers since I have sleeve hitches for them.

Kenny, it will be tough to get it all by March, (the month of voting lol). I fortunately have very little to paint... only fabricate LOL.

I have to take this one all the way down to do the frame. Would have to find inside to do large parts. Hopefully will get the hood and grille ready before it gets too cold. Still have the trailer to finish.

Kenny
You can get flanged exhaust adapters from Cummins. There are about 3" long and you could build from there.
