Yeah, I completely agree with you on painting rubber parts and have no plans to paint them. I also agree with you on the black paint on the fins, but am concerned about the reduced cooling capacity by doing so. You said the end caps were painted, but you didnít say what color (red or black)?

I wish I had access to the inside of the rim to do exactly as you mention, but new tires have already been mounted onto the rims. Itís probably not worth dis-mounting just to clean up a weld bead.

I guess I am going for a ďmostlyĒ original look on the tractor, but I do not want to spend the extra $$$ís to be completely original.

Thanks for the tip on the painting of bolt heads using cardboard and using a 6 pt socket to prevent damage to the paint. I have been wire wheeling a lot of the bolts that are in decent shape and replacing ones that have rusted beyond repair.

When you say it will be around $3000, what are you referring to? Paint cost? If so, I am looking at spending around $300 on paint at this point using the Martin Senour industrial paint. I realize that this is not automotive grade paint, but I am hoping the results will be adequate for a tractor that will shedded & covered 99% of the time.
I have been paint prepping all my parts as I remove them so hopefully things go fast once I finish cleaning up the chassis. Keep your head up there sflem849! Iíve had plenty of nights that I did the same thing. Which bores are you referring to that need to have bushings installed?
