1947 John Deere Model A Paint - Thank you

I would like to thank everyone for their help answering all the technical questions or advice along the restoration journey. I would especially like to thank Rod for his help in selecting the PPG sealer and primer to use with my John Deere implement paint. The project has turned out as well as I had hoped so far. Now, I just have to get it all back together. I posted previously about masking off tires and the subject quickly turned into my crucification of smoothing up some of the castings. So, here is what I was talking about if my words did not describe it correctly.

Wow, great job. I'd be super interested in knowing the particulars on your paint mix. volume of mix - paint/reducer/hardener, parts, etc.

I used ppg epoxy primer, then ppg high build primer, then JD paint/reducer with ppg hardener. I will check tonight on the numbers of the ppg materials. Rod has other automotive paint #'s. Just search for JD paint codes in this forum.

Progress so far.

It looks too good now. The factory paint probably didn"t look that good.

Great job. I am impressed.

Looking good.

Some advice- the frt. hubs ,the complete casting of the hub, is to be yellow when done. and also if you wet the ground down before painting it should help to reduce dust and dirt in your paint coats.

The front hubs will be yellow. I taped off the outer portion, but did not tape off the rest. I hate it when people paint the hubs completely green. I wet the ground several times before starting to paint, but in the photos it looks like it is dry. I did get a little airborne "sand" particles in it though.
