1 - No idea

2 - The end caps were painted. The rest was not painted. You will see some overspray on it (according to books) I think the fins look good painted black. This may make the radiator not cool as well. There is a list of things that was masked off in Guy Fays "Originality Guide - Letter Series Tractors." This includes tags on electrical components, serial number, dist cap, etc. With that I think some things that should be red look like crap when they are red. These are mostly rubber parts like the hyd hoses, fan belts, and radiator hoses. For one thing they just don't hold the paint well. You could probably get the Guy Fay book when you place the rest of your order from B inder B ooks. :wink:
3 - I would certainly grind them smooth. If you don't trust their integrity do a second pass on the inside and grind then flap disc it down.

4 - I started a post on just this thing last month. Most guys are cleaning bolts up on a wire weel then painting them in cardboard or a board with holes. They then touch them up when the tractor is back together. (Use 6 pt sockets and not 12 and your paint will survive better) Most guys said they buy new washers and/or nuts because it is such a pain to clean them. Everything was painted put together with the exception of the hood (IIRC)

I have heard from most guys it will be around $3000. I already have mine in a pile of pieces but no paint prep has been done. Not sure if that makes it more or less expensive. I had a rough night last night. I went out to the barn and starred for 15 minutes. I didn't know where to start and thought I might never finish this project and then went back to the house. :oops: I then started making a list of what I need to do and what I need to buy. I want to be sure I have the cash to finish this thing once I get a good start on it. Just boring out the egged out holes and bushing them is going to be quite a proposition. There are over a dozen that need attention. Then I have to get the rods that go through them welded up and dress them back down. Now I am getting discouraged again.
