    I finally got around to painting my Farmall C. Hey, it's only taken me about 12 years, but better late than never right? Here it is in the green epoxy primer. In a couple of days I'll put on the BASF enamel equivilent of IHC#50 RED

    It looks like you have taken a lot of care on that one. I bet it looks beautiful. Be sure to post photos and updates after it is painted, when the decals go on, and so forth.

    BASF epoxy primer with an enamel/hardener top coat. When I painted my Scout, I used their paint and liked it so I thought I'd give it a try on the tractor. I also wanted to use "body shop" paint so I could get the original darker red that IH used back in the 40's. The modern IH red has a brighter orangey tint to it and is what you get from tractor supply etc.

    William;

    If you'd stood just right while taking the picture, bet I'd be able to see you in the reflection. :thumbs up:
    Looks really nice!
    We'll be waiting anxiously for the roll-out photos :whistling:

    And think how good it could have looked if you had just taken your time with it.

    Nice looking tractor!
