Hi Guy's,

I just joined this site. I had posted a thread on WFM about the restoration of my 1963 110 serial number 2865 and had a friend ask me to post it here also. Here is what it looked like before restoration. I know it doesn't look real bad in the pictures but the PO just used a spray can over top of the original paint without sandblasting or sanding.

Here are some painted parts. We use U-Tech paint which is made by Sikkens. We had them color match the shade of green to match John Deere green.

Very nice! Good to have a few more PA folks here. Maybe you could bring your tractor to the Roots Market Tractor Show.

Thanks Don! I will have to check into that show. I will probably take it to JD day at Rough & Tumble in Kinzers in July.
