striping an allis?

Recommended Posts

OK, I am in the midst of sanding and painting my 917H. I am kicking around the idea of painting a double stripe on the hood and maybe the fender deck. I think I would use a double white stripe on the hood, (I would guess about a double 2-1/2" separated by 1/2" or so) and don't know about the fender deck yet. I think I mask with blue tape and paint the stripes. Thoughts on the concept or the procedure?

Thanks for the replies. Ardisam, that is a smooth looking 917. I hope my 917 turned 916-HB looks as good as that when I am through. Yep decals would work great. I am not aware of decals in the size I am thinking about. I am thinking about stripes down the center of the hood, just for a little panache. I may paint it (orange) and do a mockup with white paper stripes, just to see if I like it.

I actually like the looks of the old 101's. They have an offset stripe on the hood as well as the "101" in outline on the hood as well. A "916-HB" with an offset stripe would look kinda neat on your hood imho. I agree to the mock up first.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
