Curious as to how most of you paint a tractor. I've painted the wheels and wheel weights and mounted the tires. (John Deere M all the yellow)The tractor is in a lot of pieces and I can paint all the green when the weather warms up. What do you do about the nuts and bolts when you bolt it all up? if I paint the nuts and bolts ahead of time they are going to be looking real sad after I chip all the fresh paint off while bolting it together. Touch up with a small brush? repaint whole tractor after assembeled ??? Thanks for any help! Ed B in rainy wet Willamete Valley in Oregon.

Use hardener with the paint and paint before installation. I have done this several times. After installation the bolts/nuts are easily touched up with a small brush.

I have also found if you paint the nuts and bolts separately and then bake the paint. It will chip the paint much less. I have an old oven in my shop that I just use for this purpose.

I paint everything in pieces with a urethane. The finish is damaged somewhat on the bolts when I assemble it but with a little light sanding, it can be touched up with a small soft brush. They make padded sockets for this purpose but I don't have any. What I use is standard full faced sockets.
