    We need a Like Button for this site. I love Tractors more than I do the trucks and that Photo is Pure eye candy to me.

    A WHITE Farmall, didn't know such a thing exists. Will have to get a picture of my friends Oliver with all the faring and fender skirts. Won several shows with it.

    It's my understanding that the prototypes were white and were used for promotion at some dealerships.

    Interior paint

    Well I have had a little time so I fit the new steering column, master cylinder and wiper brackets. In an effort to move forward I needed to painted the interior BUT I am not happy with the color. The color is supposed to be seacrest, these pictures are of wet paint. Maybe it will look better tomorrow. If not the next pictures will be of a different color!! Any opinions?

    Thanks for the compliment LaTroca but it still looks bad, wrong color. The paint went on fine and flowed out very well but NAPA mixed the wrong color. I had 3 samples mixed so I could make a choice, I was hoping it would dry darker but this isn't the color I chose. It looks like a lime right now!! New pictures coming soon. When the tuck is done the cab interior, cab and bed will be a cream with a green tint. Seacrest on dash, seat frame, seat skirts, fenders, running boards and pinstripe at the belt line.

    It's hard to tell what a color is going to look like by just a small drop on a piece of paper.so your going to spray the truck yourself man I sure would love to spray my own truck .keep up the good work and the pics to. Robert

    You can do it Robert!
    I did mine as did some others on this page. Just get a gun, practice just a tad, and go to town!

    Mike, that's a bummer. Kinda like when I painted the hood, fenders, grille, running boards of mine.
    Being color blind, I had no idea that the second batch of paint NAPA mixed for me was different than the first batch that I painted the cab with. :/
    I didn't notice it until after I had put the hood back on.
    Just more character...

    Yup!

    They have a pretty good selection of paints, too. They say the shelf life is only about 6 months, so that is something to consider.
    If I was ready to paint everything in one shot, I wouldn't have had the problem with the colors not matching. I'm sure that by the time I get around to painting the rear fenders and the GMC on the tailgate that I don't have yet, this next batch of red will be different yet.

    Won't make no big whup to me, however~ It will be some shade of red, yellow, and white, and it will be shiny! (And, most importantly, RUST FREE.) ;)

    Zig, just speaking for myself, I like your paint style and love the KC Orange.
