I am looking at using the Martin Senour PCC135 (Industrial Series) acrylic enamel over an epoxy primer for a cost effective paint solution. They make a silver metallic (PCC135SL) and IH Red (PCC135IH) that appears quite close to what I am envisioning, but wondering if anyone has experience shooting this paint and/or color and what the results were?
Also, I have a question about the radiator. Was it originally painted red or black? I was thinking of masking off the core and painting the cast tanks red being the neck is exposes as it protrudes through the grill sheetmetal. Were there other areas of the WD-9 that were not red (besides the rims)?
Addditionally, the rim were widened by 4 inches and from what I understand this was a common practice on these tractors. There is quite a bit of weld spatter on the rims that I am going to clean up and the weld bead is there as well. I was contemplating grind this weld smooth so once I paint over it, you would not be able to tell that the rims were widened, but I have no idea on the integrity of the weld so I run of the weld cracking down the road.
Finally (sorry for the novel and getting a bit off topic), how do most people handle fasteners (bolt heads, nuts, etc) ? I have removed alot of components to prep for paint and will likely have to paint alot of them off the tractor to get good coverage on all parts. In the end, some fasteners would be painted red and others would have to be replaced with a new plated fastener. I'm guessing from factory, everything was painted once assembled, but just wanted to see how others handle this.
