You can paint them any color you choose. There are many types/levels of restoration. A factory original reato would require the correct color. 90% of the "perfectly restored" 8Ns are the wrong color red and the wrong color grey. The same for the 9Ns grey.When it comes to original, unless you were actually present the day something was built, it"s anyone"s guess what"s original past a certain point. Daily log sheets in factory production lines are full of comments. Many times when a supply of something runs dry, something else is used for a day or two til the original stuff arrives. This is all approved by a supervisor or manager to keep production moving, and logged in the records somewhere. If someone restores an ugly, beat down tractor to a beautiful, working piece of art and history, they deserve kudos for their time and effort. That"s just my humble opinion.

Arnold Z, welcome to the forum!
I agree, they deserve kudos for the effort and time they put into it.

Not to mention saving a piece of history.

I just wish we had some other word to use besides "restored".

Maybe "refurbished" would work. Restored in the car world means
different things too, but usually it's closer to the purists' version.

I lean toward the pure definition of the word restored.

Some of mine are 12 volt, that certainly doesn't fit that description.

I call them pretty, I call them cool, I call them dirty words when
they won't start, I call them mine.

I just don't call them restored! :)
