To clean off the old paint I used a sanding disc on a variable speed drill, and various wire wheels, and some hand sanding as well. Then I used either some thinned down Rustoleum Rusty Metal Primer (brushed on) or a rattle can primer. To paint the gray, I used a combination of brushing on and rattle can spraying. The fenders were removed and hand brushed, and a 2nd coat sprayed on. The hood was all brushed since I didn't remove it. I did a few of the red parts too with spray cans.
I plan to do the red parts including the whole loader frame with Rustoleum Sunrise Red, which is very close to the original red, and NOT that orangy "vermillion" that some places sell.

Ok, ok, it's a Wheel Horse. But this is where I started . Got a couple of these things, went to a few of the shows in Portland IN and the seed was planted. Since moving from IN back to KY a few months ago and getting our 10 acres I've bought a 9N and a 640.

But this is what it looked like when I bought it.

And after getting all the sheet metal sandblasted and then rattle can priming and then sanding and then priming and sanding etc.. I painted it with Rustoleum rattle cans. Seemed to work best for me if everything was primered before I shot my color. If you paint something that say is red and dont prime it, any spot that's not red, like a rust spot you brushed and spot primed etc.. it takes forever to cover. A nice even primer coat lets your color coat go on much better. Or lets it appear to go on better I guess. What worked best for me was to give a couple of light coats of color to get a good base color down and then finally the last coat goes on thick and that's what makes it look shiney and not like a 10 year old painted it. At least that's what worked for me. Now someone that runs a body shop could have looked at it and sneared, but any of my friends and family that saw it were surprised to find out it was a spray can job. There was no overspray etc.. I took pains to do it as good as I could. Then later I sold the little thing. Wish I hadn't done that!
