When you guys paint the grill on a MF10 do you paint the black first or the silvermist first?
Can you still buy the outer rear vari speed pulley, the tin one? Mine is in bad shape. Any body have one?
Also my 10 is a 1968, most of the seats I see are painted red this one was black. Which is the right color?

I sprayed the black first, taped it, and sprayed the mist. Now I guess we're tied.

I unbolt the screen from the grill and paint them separately. That way you can get full coverage on both.

I checked with the Massey dealer today and that pulley is still availble so I ordered it $5.82, not bad.

Me too, as it's easy to tape over the silver, then shoot the black. My MF12 grill screen had been spot welded in, so no easy removal. I thought all the seat bases were supposed to be red????

If the screen is welded in place, I spray the black, and then the silver.

If you can get it apart then I would prep and paint both parts separately. You'll end up with a longer lasting paint job that way. My 8 was done as 2 pieces. It wasn't welded together.

That little RJ was fun to do, not a lot of parts. Everything was rusted solid and that took a while to get lose. The motor had a broken rod. I found a new rod and crank so all is well. That thing in high gear will barely keep up with a slow walk. That GT had sat outside a building for over 30 years and never moved.

Definatly alot less hassle and better coverage to unbolt screen.I couldn't take mine out it was welded.Hopefully yours is bolted in.
