If it were me and had no intention of ever restoring the tractor, I would make it look old to the point of distressing the parts you paint. That's just me though. I do a lot of antique repair.

I dont know about the states, but here in the UK my beat up old R is worth more as is, than if I restored it, so I think that I will just keep patching her up and using it

Hi Good call on that. I work on old equipment here in Canada. some of our parts equivalent to say your Vapormatic, come painted the correct colors. when fitted to older rougher stuff they stick out like a red house in the snow. and make the unit look like it should all be painted.
Some times its fun to see all the new parts like this on a pile of junk in a sale and the unit sells for less than the $2000 of the stuff they put on and the mechanics time doing it L.O.L. Regards Robert
