    This is the can from.which I paint the blade an rims for my 300 an somebody ( you know who you are lol) was giving me a hard time over saying it looked like I put cub paint on them. This color is way off for a 76' but it's better then rust an there protected until I get around to repainting it.

    I'm worried about the guy that commented on the "Yellow" he has entered into the "RED" zone . I' m sure his son will love the tractor but am worried he'll be shun from the "Elfian" lair upon completion and then there's the storage within the Green garage that the tractor itself might be in danger after the door goes down and the lights go out.   LOL!!!!!!!!!!
