Good morning American's, it's Friday!

A delivery brought me a jewel bulb, dash and valve cover cap head bolts and a grille screen for my Farmall 340. I know Farmallhal ordered stuph :lol: from Pilot Knob Restoration, where this delivery originated from. My ? would there be specific prep before I spray can the IH 'cream on my screen? The five square per inch looks cool. Enjoy your day folks!

Wax and grease remover. Pilot knob restoration is a cool place on the bluffs above the Mississippi river south of Galena Illinois, would of been a nice road trip this time of the year to pick up your parts in person. Just a few miles up river from the ski lodge.

I would also degrease the screen before priming to assure that waxy material is removed. Jim

When I restored my 240 we just painted everything, the screen and grille, with epoxy primer before the white/cream paint and it has held up nicely. I think the painter also cleaned any residual oily substance off the screen before it was primed with some sort of cleaning agent, Hal.
