Yeah Bill why don't you explain a little about the paint you used
So since my butt-headed friend here (who which by the way prefers goats over women ) knows the story and brought it up so here it is. I'm a forklift technician by trade. One day I was at a customer servicing they're lift and I acquired this can of paint. I thought, I know the perfect build for this color, which is this kit I won on a raffle at my model car club. So yesterday I painted the two body sections as posted above. Well... I ran out of paint before I got to the hood, rear door, and visor. So I was really bummed cause I had forgotten where it was I got this paint and knew it was an odd paint. I googled it and searched for an hour last night trying to find this paint. The only thing that I could find remotely common was a store called Grainger. So I trucked it on over their today and didn't see it on the shelves. I searched the catalog and found it! Man what a relief that was. So today when I got home I was able to finish the paint. The best part is its a cheap enamel that only cost me $3.22! So needless to say, I'm gona look at what other colors this company offers for future builds.

I thought that looked like John Deere green! That's why I was asking Bill. I have a John Deere tractor that's going to need that color. You know what would be cool? John Deere yellow on the wheels!
I thought about putting some yellow in there but didn't want it to look like a tractor scheme. Nothing wrong with that I just didn't want it to get associated with John Deere. If you want to paint your tractor though you won't go broke doing it with this paint and it will look good.

Really like the rim/tire choice ..all business.
The interior wood work is neat and utilitarian.
Paint polish rocks !

Personally, I think the flattie works better with thi sbuild than the exotic modern mill would have.

I agree Danno, while it would have been a cool thing to put that 427 in there its just not suited with the style of this build. Although, now that I have a half finished 427 I'll be looking for a victim to throw it in. Thanks again guys!!
