I was going to use MS because the local NAPA guy is a family friend and a painter. I think the tech support is worth something. My buddy also "restored" a 4 year old planter 3 years ago with MS and it turned out well. (The JD green does look a touch darker than the new JD green) I am not going to shoot base clear. Maybe it wasn't the Crossfire. I don't think it was the industrial but I could be wrong.
The paint has held up pretty well on the planter, but it hasn't set out much or at all. He uses liquid fert and 32% on the planter and has spilled it and washed off promptly. No problems there either.
I'm going with Devon's as well. It's only money. OEM has the stuipd vinyl ones for $149 plus shipping. That makes a difference of only $15 and that is a pretty easy decision.
I would at least dress them up with a flap disk on the grinder. That and a little body filler and they should be pretty well hidden. I have seen some pretty bad hack jobs so I could be wrong.
I don't have my mill setup yet so I am just going to hit them with the die grinder. Anything will be better than they are now. Really if you TIG weld them they are smooth enough and you put material on slow enough that you might not have to do anything. That is how my buddy rebuilt my H shifter. Only problem there is the metal has to be REALLY clean.
I have taken apart my MD, H, and SMTA in various ways before but this is my first full resto. I think we should have started on a stupid H before we tackled the biggest most complicated tractor of the era.
The service manual is probably the most important one. You will probably want to pick one up someday. I actually should have saved my money on the operators manual because it is about 90% the same as my MD manual. My email should show up on the bottom as a button in the modern view.
