Time for a 6-month update on my build.
I've been priming and painting lots of parts and installing them on the tractor. My wife paints for a hobby and helped select the colors. Tony will be happy, most of it is Rustoleum. :P
The gray is Valspar Massey Ferguson gray with some of the parts painted with Rustoleum 2X Gloss Dark Gray. The blue is Rustoleum 2X Gloss Brilliant Blue, and the red(dish) is Rustoleum Stops Rust Gloss Merlot. There are two different blacks, Rustoleum Gloss Black Appliance Epoxy, and Duplicolor Gloss Black Ceramic engine enamel. The steering box is Rustoleum High Performance Silver Aluminum, and the side covers are Krylon clear coat over a semi-polished finish.
When I restored my '68 Chevelle I bought lots of colors for different finishes and to duplicate plating, so I've used that on the nuts & bolts and smaller parts. I figured since I already had it I should use it. These include Eastwood Spray Gray, Zinc Phosphate, Clear Zinc, and Cast Blast.
I'll put some more pics up as I get it further together.

Some sub-assemblies----
