I just saw this pic on another ag site. Did the guy who restored this 6000 use two different colors between the hood and the front casting, or is this what gray gloss does on two different types of metal? (the front end is cast iron like on an 8000). I see a similar effect, to a lesser extent, between the cast iron rear wheel and the steel rim.
Are my eyes playing tricks on me? I can't imagine that the owner used two different colors intentionally.
